Employer who burned maid with an iron loses appeal A woman who burned her domestic helper on the forearm with an iron for ironing too close to her baby must serve the remainder of her seven-month sentence after the Court of Appeal rejected her appeal yesterday. Mr Justice Peter Line said the case was difficult but that there was no doubt how the injury to the helper, Rasnenti, arose and prosecutors had a strong case against her employer, Ng Bik-man, 32. Ng was convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm. Rasnenti switched off two surveillance cameras that could have captured the incident around the time it happened. Mr Justice Line said the issue of why she did so remained unanswered but that it did not raise doubt about how she was hurt.
