Employer cuts off Indonesian worker’s finger
印尼家務工手指遭僱主斬斷

Violence on FDWs to continue if no major policy reforms happens
如無重要制度性改革,對外藉家務工的暴力侵害將繈續發生

“The violence towards foreign domestic workers (FDWs) in Hong Kong will continue as long as the Hong Kong government insist on its flawed and anti-migrant policies that promote modern-day slavery.”
如香港政府繼續堅持它極之有問題及壓制著移民工的政策的話,對在香港的外藉家務工的奴役狀況及暴力侵害將繈續發生。

This is the response of Sringatin, spokesperson of the Asian Migrants’ Coordinating Body (AMCB) and the Justice for Erwiana and All Migrant Domestic Workers Committee (J4EMDW), to the latest incident of violence committed against a newly-arrived Indonesian domestic worker.
「亞洲移居人士聯盟」及「為 Erwiana 及所有移民家務工爭取公義委員會」的發言人Sringatin, 對剛剛發生在一位來港不久的印尼家務工的暴力事件作出以上回應。

Anis Adriani, a 28-year old domestic worker from East Java in Indonesia was brought to the hospital last Monday, 24 February, after her employer chopped-off her finger with a kitchen knife.
Anis Adriani 是一位來自印尼東爪哇,28歲的家務工。上星期一,二月二十四日,她被他的僱主用廚刀斬脫了她的手指後,被送往醫院救治。

“We are outraged. How can someone do this to a fellow human being? This is another example of the ugly face of violence and modern-day slavery of FDWs in Hong Kong,” said Sringatin.
Sringatin 說『我們極之憤怒。怎麼可有人對另外一個人做出這樣的事情?這是在香港的外藉家務工所面對的暴力對待及奴役狀況的又一次例證。』

According to Sringatin who visited Anis several times since she was hospitalized, the incident happened in the morning of 24th February after her male employer and 17-year old ward left the house. Anis’ female employer was still sleeping when their dog started to bark loudly. She (Anis) tried calming the dog but it just kept barking until the female employer of Anis woke up.
Sringatin 在 Anis 住院後已探望了她好幾次,據她所說,事發在二月二十四日的早上,在 Anis 的男僱主跟 17 歲的女兒出門後,她的女僱主仍在睡覺時他們養的狗開始大聲的吠叫。Anis 嘗試讓它安靜下來,但它只顧繼續吠叫,直至女僱主醒來仍在吠。

To the surprise of Anis, her employer spoke something, which she couldn’t understand and then pulled her by her hand to the kitchen, placed it on a chopping board and then chopped her finger with a kitchen knife. The female employer left her bleeding as if nothing had happened.
Anis 也被嚇到,她的顧主在跟她說了一句她聽不明白的說話後,執著她的手把她拉進廚房,把她的手放上枮板,拿起廚刀斬落她的手指。跟著女僱主就若無其事地逕自離開,由得 Anis 在那裡流血。

Anis tried to seek help from a fellow Indonesian working for their neighbor who advised her to call the employment agency. The staff at the agency told Anis to wait inside the house and soon, two personnel from the ambulance services came with the building security. She was brought to the hospital afterwards.
跟著,Anis 嘗試向一位在隔壁工作的印尼朋友尋求幫助,那位印尼朋友就叫Anis 聯絡 Anis 自己的中介公司。中介公司的職員叫 Anis 留在屋內等候。不久,兩位救護員跟大廈的保安員來到,並把她帶回醫院。

“The problem is, as long as the government keeps on defending its flawed and discriminatory policies like the two-week rule, mandatory live-in, and now, this arbitrary denial of visa to FDWs being suspected of “job-hopping”, the prevailing culture of treating FDWs as slaves will continue and incidents of violence committed against our fellow migrant workers will persist,” Sringatin averred.
Sringatin 強調說『問題是,只要政府繼續堅持它那些極有問題及帶歧視性的政策措施,現時極為普遍的,奴役外藉家務工及對她們暴力侵害的個案,將繼續發生。那些政策措 施包括,兩星期逗留條件、強制在僱主家中留宿、以至最近因被懷疑「跳工」而被拒絕簽證申請的個案,等等。』

“Instead of defending, the Hong Kong government should make a move to repeal and reform anti-migrant policies as it will surely send a clear message to unscrupulous employers that FDWs must be treated with respect. Until then, abuse of FDWs like what happened to Erwiana, and now with Anis, will always be a common occurrence in Hong Kong,” Sringatin said.
Sringatin 續說,『與其扥詞推搪,香港政府更應該明確地啟動對移民工不利的措施的改革及修正。因這可向那些肆無忌憚的無良僱主發出一個必須尊重外藉家務工的訊息。』

“We are now in constant communication with Anis. We heard that the police have arrested the employer. We are discussing with her other actions that can be taken so she can get comprehensive justice,” Sringatin concluded.
Sringatin 總結說『我們現在正跟 Anis 保持著連繫。我們聽說警方已拘捕了那僱主。我們將跟她討論可為她取回公義的跟進行動。』
