A group of people concerned by the recent death of a domestic helper have banded together to seek justice for Vicenta Flores, whose body was found floating off Tung Chung on April 11. The Justice for Vicky Concern Group - named after Flores's nickname - was formed on Saturday and comprises domestic helpers and their employers, and residents of Discovery Bay, where Flores had lived. Core organisers had called various migrant workers' groups for support. They also sought support on discoverybayforum.com, a blogging site that announced the formation of its own charitable foundation yesterday, to raise funds 'to pay for an autopsy, legal and associated costs'. Many people have refused to accept the conclusion of the police postmortem examination, which ruled Flores drowned and found no suspicious circumstances. Flores, who was single, was last seen running barefoot away from her employers' flat in Seabee Lane on the evening of April 8. Her body was found on the other side of Lantau, floating off Tung Chung New Development Pier, on April 11. On Sunday, the coalition launched a petition asking for a thorough police investigation into her death. It gathered at least 1,000 names in Central alone. Several religious groups and non-governmental organisations in Discovery Bay have started similar petitions. The coalition organised a memorial Mass last night for Flores, a 31-year-old who left her poor farming family in Batangas in the Philippines, barely out of her teens, vowing to better their lives. The youngest in a family of eight children, Flores worked with her employers for 12 years, earning the minimum wage. She usually took only one day off a month, to save more money, said her older sister, Irene Flores-Reguis, who flew in from Manila. Yesterday, Ms Reguis, two close relatives living in Hong Kong and two potential witnesses gave statements to the police - at the Lantau North district's miscellaneous inquiry support sub-unit - which is continuing a non-criminal investigation. Philippine Vice-Consul Val Simon Roque said yesterday the consulate had filed a request for an autopsy on Flores, as police had yet to give them any reports on their findings. James Rice, assistant professor of legal philosophy at Lingnan University and author of the book Take Your Rights Seriously, asked the police to explain why someone who lived in Discovery Bay would run all the way to Tung Chung barefoot.
