Pinay denies indecent assault on local man

07 September 2018

Eastern Court.

In an unusual case, a Filipina domestic helper is set to be tried on charges of indecently assaulting a local Chinese man, right inside her employer’s flat.

Ivy Rebustillo appeared before Magistrate Peter Law in Eastern Court on Sept 6 to face one count of “common assault” and another count of “indecent assault”.

Rebustillo, who is out on bail, denied both charges, and will now have to stand trial on Oct. 6.

The prosecution said the offenses allegedly took place in a residential flat along King’s Road, North Point on June 30 this year. No other details of the alleged incident were mentioned in court.

Prosecution also said they had taken a statement, a video recorded interview with the alleged victim referred to only as “Mister X,” lasting one hour and 17 minutes. They also have a 30-minute CCTV footage showing the alleged offenses.

The duty lawyer handling Rebustillo’s defense said he he would challenge the video recorded interview during the trial. - Virgilio B. Lumicao
