Pinay who claims husband might kill her fails to stop deportation from HK

Judge says there's no basis for claimant to fear being killed for her infidelity

Another Filipina former domestic worker who filed a torture claim after overstaying her visa, has failed in her attempt in the High Court to prevent her deportation from Hong Kong.

A. P. Libao cited as reason for resisting her deportation her fear of being harmed or killed by her husband in the Philippines because of her intimate relationship with another man in Hong Kong.

But Judge Bruno Chan dismissed her application for leave to apply for judicial review on Nov. 22, saying it had no prospect of success.

Libao tried to seek the judicial review against the decision of both the Director of Immigration and the Torture Claims Adjudication Board rejecting her claim for non-refoulement, or against being sent back home.
The applicant arrived on a two-year domestic worker visa in Hong Kong in December 2015, but her work contract was terminated on Feb 12, 2017.

She overstayed 16 days before surrendering to Immigration and filed a non-refoulement claim, citing her alleged fear of being killed by her husband.

She also claimed a cousin who had a land dispute with her father in 2014 had threatened to kill their entire family.

But on Jan 25, 2018 the Immigration Director rejected her claim, saying the risk to her life was low due to the absence of any past ill-treatment from her husband or cousin.

Libao appealed to the Torture Claims Adjudication Board but this was also dismissed.
