An Indonesian domestic helper who is suing her former employers in Hong Kong over physical abuse has launched a new lawsuit, this time alleging they reorganised their assets to avoid compensating her.
Erwiana Sulistyaningsih is an Indonesian domestic worker who, in January 2014, accused her Hong Kong employer of subjecting her to six months of physical abuse. Erwiana, 23, underwent treatment at the Amal Sehat Islamic Hospital in Sragen, Indonesia, after boarding a flight from the SAR. Photographs of Erwiana's injuries quickly spread through social media and led to a demonstration of thousands of people through Hong Kong's Central district. Police arrested her employer on January 20, 2014, as she tried to board a flight to Thailand.
