A maid wept several times as she told a court yesterday how her former employer ironed her hands because she had scorched a camisole. Achacoso Warly Cabaneros, 28, who came to Hong Kong in January to work for Liu Man-kuen, 33, was asked to put her hands on the ironing board after scorching the employer's nylon camisole, Eastern Court heard. Defence counsel Fu Chong-sang asked Ms Cabaneros if she had asked Liu why she had ironed her hand. 'No,' the weeping maid replied. 'I was too confused. I was sitting inside my room crying. She said it was the payment of scorching her camisole, when she ironed me.' Mr Fu asked her to demonstrate what happened on the morning of February 25 at Liu's Tai Hang Road apartment in Causeway Bay. The maid took the iron, now a court exhibit, to demonstrate.The maid was left scarred. Ms Cabaneros said she had not tried afterwards to ask her former employer why she had done that. Mr Fu suggested to her that she was falsely accusing the defendant. The maid burst into tears again and said: 'No.' Liu denies a charge of inflicting grievous bodily harm. The hearing was adjourned until May 22 by magistrate Colin Mackintosh for further reports.
