Trial for FDH charged with hurting daughter of employer
A Filipino domestic helper will stand trial for allegedly hurting the 10-year-old daughter of her employer in North Point Hong Kong.
Emerolyne M. I. on May 19 pleaded not guilty to the charge of ill-treatment or neglect by those in charge of child or young person.
Eastern Courts Principal Magistrate Bina Chainrai scheduled Emerolyne’s trial date on July 14.
A pre-trial hearing will also be held before the trial is scheduled.
The prosecution charged the defendant of hurting the child on Mar. 6 in the flat of her employer in North Point.
The action, the prosecution charged, could have “likely caused unnecessary suffering or injury” to the victim.
The prosecutor said five witnesses and a CCTV footage will be presented in court.
