Dozens of Indonesian domestic helpers yesterday rallied at the luxury residential estate of Baguio Villa and outside the Indonesian consulate to seek justice for a maid who fell from a 19th floor flat two weeks ago and died in hospital last week. The migrant workers claim Suprihatin, a 23-year-old Indonesian, did not commit suicide. Her friends and maids working in neighbouring flats say she often had bruises and claimed she had been physically abused. Police are investigating, but when two of Suprihatin's friends approached the Indonesian consulate for help, they were told by a representative not to 'make a big deal out of this', according to Sri Widodo, a domestic helper in another block of Baguio Villa. 'We are dying. What are you doing?' the Indonesian workers' placards proclaimed outside the consulate in Causeway Bay. There had been speculation that Suprihatin was distressed because her family was badly hit by the Boxing Day tsunami. However, migrant worker support groups said yesterday Suprihatin came from Ponorogo, in East Java, which was unaffected by the disaster. When Sri Widodo and Ms Tuti, another friend from Baguio Villa, visited Suprihatin in Queen Mary Hospital, where she lapsed in and out of consciousness for a week before she died, she denied committing suicide, they said. 'We asked her 'did you jump?' and she signalled 'no' with a head shake,' Sri Widodo said. 'We asked 'were you pushed?' and she nodded 'yes'.' Officials at the Indonesian consulate could not be reached for comment yesterday. A police spokeswoman said the case remained under investigation and police would follow up by arranging a post mortem examination and interviewing witnesses who had yet to give statements on the matter. In a joint statement, a number of migrant worker groups and Christian Action demanded that a proper investigation be conducted in to the death. They also said that the Indonesian consulate must do its duty in 'ensuring the safety, just treatment and welfare of its nationals in Hong Kong'. 'For a person who allegedly committed suicide to show signs, at her death bed, that she was pushed out, cries for proper investigation and justice,' the statement said. 'This violence and injustice against migrants should be stopped.'
