The former employer of Indonesian domestic worker Erwiana Sulistyaningsih was yesterday convicted of a raft of assault charges at the District Court after a judge found the maid was too "simple" to have framed the woman who hired her. Erwiana told the Post in an earlier interview she would forgive her former boss Law Wan-tung and her family. "But since Hong Kong has a justice system, justice must be upheld," she said. 'I can forgive Law Wan-tung but justice must be upheld,' says Indonesian maid Erwiana Sulistyaningsih At a press conference yesterday, Erwiana said she hoped that Law would receive the maximum sentence. District Court Judge Amanda Woodcock found the employer guilty of 18 of the 20 charges, after rejecting Law's lawyer Graham Harris SC's suggestion Erwiana set up her employer. "I am sure she was not framing the defendant because she had a hidden financial agenda or a personal vendetta," she told the court packed with journalists, maids' rights advocates and Law's family - including her husband, son and daughter. Woodcock convicted Law, 44, of six counts of assault and criminal intimidation on Erwiana and two counts on another Indonesian maid, Tutik Lestari Ningsih. Law was acquitted of two charges concerning a third helper, Nurhasanah, but was also found guilty of 10 charges of failing to pay Erwiana and give her time off. Erwiana's father, Rohmad Saputro, told the Post at his home in the Indonesian city of Ngawi: "I hope [Law] will learn a lesson and change her attitude." Woodcock ruled that Erwiana was by no means "a worldly person", citing examples, such as the helper failing to open the front door with an electronic lock at Law's flat. The court previously heard Law, who claimed to have a rich husband with strong ties to Indonesia, threatened to kill Erwiana and her parents. "That she believed [this] shows she is a timid, simple person," Woodcock said. Law's lawyer previously said had the helper really been the victim of the claims - that she was beaten constantly, knocked out on one occasion and had a metal tube from a vacuum cleaner inserted into her mouth - she would had fled or told someone. Woodcock said Erwiana became too subservient to speak out while Law's confidence grew. Law avoided taking Erwiana to the doctor when her dermatitis got worse, fearing the abuse would be exposed, the judge found. She also said the medical evidence was in Erwiana's favour. She said she found all three maids reliable, though the prosecution failed to prove Nurhasanah's case beyond reasonable doubt. Woodcock also found Erwiana's nose was not broken as she claimed, so convicted Law of a lesser charge of assault occasioning bodily harm instead of inflicting grievous bodily harm. She ordered Law to pay back Erwiana HK$28,800 and sought two reports to study Law's mental state before adjourning the case until February 27 for mitigation and sentencing. Law was remanded in custody. Outside court, Eric Chung Chi-ming, police chief inspector of Kwun Tong district, said this case served as a deterrent against similar abuses. Lawyer Melville Boase said he expected to lodge a civil law suit for Erwiana against Law in days.
