Anis Andriani, a 28-year-old helper from Ponorogo, Indonesia, was hospitalised in Pokfulam this week after her employer allegedly chopped off her finger with a knife. Anis says she had previously attempted to alert neighbours to her ill-treatment. When she was unable to understand her employer, Anis says she severed the tip of her finder with a knife on a chopping board.
It is the latest in a spate of torture incidents. Yet as Anis was being treated in hospital, the government promised that the two-week rule and live-in rule – which enable such mistreatment – are here to stay.
