Maing wants to ask her friend to return to HK and testify in her defence

A Filipina domestic helper who claims that the Hong Kong ID card found in her possession was given to her by a friend as souvenir, will stand trial next month after she pleaded not guilty to a charge of possessing a HKID card belonging to another person.

M.K. Maing entered her plea before Eastern Court Magistrate Andrew Mok today, Sept. 20.

Her bail was extended until her trial set for Oct. 26.

The prosecution said it will present three witnesses while the defense said the owner of the HKID card found in Maing’s possession is being located so she may testify for the defendant.


Maing was arrested during a spot check on May 12 after officers found two HKID cards in her wallet, hers and the card issued to her friend.

The helper was also charged initially with breaching her condition of stay by overstaying her visa. However, she managed to prove that she was just waiting for her new employment visa to be released on May 20 and she had an employer waiting for her.


The prosecution withdrew the breach of condition charge on Aug 23 after confirming that a new work visa was about to be issued to Maing.

It also dropped its opposition to the defendant’s bail application in previous hearings after the Bethune House Migrant Women’s Refuge through its executive director Edwina Antonio told the court that it was willing to shelter Maing.
