A Filipina domestic helper was charged today, Jun 19, in Fanling Court with ill-treating the five-year-old child of her employer in Taipo.

Maria H.E. appeared before Magistrate Don So, charged with “willful assault by those in charge of a child”.


Her duty lawyer said Maria was ready to enter a plea, but the prosecution asked for an adjournment for further legal advice.

Magistrate So agreed to adjourn the case but asked the prosecution to read out the details of the charge to Maria.


The Filipina is charged with willfully assaulting her employer’s child on Apr 23 inside the family’s house in Taipo, causing the toddler to suffer pain.

The employer reported to the police, who investigated and arrested the helper. But the accused was released on bail after she was charged.
