HELPERS – Tortured Helper Suspect in Court Today as Gov’t Refuses to Alter Rules 1

As the employer accused of torturing Indonesian helper Erwiana Sulistyaningsih appears at a Kwun Tong court facing seven charges of abuse, helpers and local people gathered at the Star Ferry last night for a candlelit vigil in her name.

Despite tireless efforts by the Justice Committee, international condemnation, multiple submissions to the government calling for reform and subsequent torture cases, the Hong Kong authorities are yet to announce any change in the rules which enabled the torture of Erwiana.


EVENTS – HK Fan Zone: Mini-Music Festival in Central This Week

HK Fan Zone – a new event to compliment the Rugby 7s – is now in full swing each night at the New Central Harbourfront park…

The atmosphere and set-up is tantamount to a mini-Clockenflap – with food stalls, kids areas and some acts, such as 2 Many DJs and De La Soul, making a welcome return to the city. There are also fun fair-style games, bean bags and large screens to catch the rugby action throughout the weekend.
