Or, How Did You Spend Your Sunday?
Sometimes the least words are the most welcome. So I’ll very quickly report that a crime investigation is now under way into the callous, wanton abuse of the domestic helper I mentioned a few days ago. The victim spent 10 hours giving a statement to the police yesterday, which should indicate that this is no trivial matter. Her case will proceed through at least one court and one tribunal here in Hong Kong, and I’ll write about the results when I can do so without legal ramifications. For now I should just mention again that domestic violence in all its forms, whether tinged with racism, presumptions of social superiority or marital dysfunction, is appalling.
Wake up people, the home is a refuge.
