亞洲移住人士三月二十二日行動聲明
為 Elis 爭取公義! 保護生命! 堅持外藉家務工權益!

我們,亞洲移住人士組織(AMCB-IMA-HK),因我們的成員,同時是外藉家務工的 Elis Kurniasih之死訊,而深感哀痛。她以三十三歲之年於2015年3月16日去世。由於樓上的冷氣機槽之石屎跌落,把她的脊骨折斷,導致嚴重創傷,令她不治離世。

我們與她兩名子女及親友,為她的忽然離世,同感哀痛。我們亦鉻記她在港印尼移民工協會 (ATKI,亦即 AMCB之屬會)中,一切為亞洲和印尼移民工之福祉所作的無價的付出。

在多次的倡議運動中,她都與我們一起。當我們為受虐姐妹 Erwiana Sulistyaningsih 站出來時,她亦與我們共進退。

有人將她離世的事件瑣碎化為[錯誤的時空]的[意外]。他們會說,這類意外發生的機率極低,這次真是純綷的巧合。

我們未敢苟同。

她不是一個統計數字。我們不能把她輕忽地視為香港這一錯綜複雜的機器中的一個節點。她是一位母親、一個朋友、人類的一份子,就如你和我一樣。

如果她的個案被如此掩埋,那麼是否任何人在香港所發生的不幸,都可只視為簡單的數學機率問題?

我們需要答案。我們需要真相。我們需要問責於當被問責的人。我們要求:

1. 徹底調查及確定導致Elis死亡的原因及應為此負上責任的人等。負有責任的人等必須被檢控。

2. 調查及確定逼令Elis需在中介中心而非僱主家中住宿的僱主及陽光女傭中心的罪責。

3. 容許移民家務工無需經由中介公司辦理僱傭合約。

4. 要求香港政府設訂更新,更嚴格及主動的條例以規管及監察各中介公司。更需積極地檢控違反法例及剝削工人以至僱主的公司。

5. 容許僱主及傭工透過協商共識,可選擇不在僱主家中留宿的外宿安排。

亞洲移住人士組織將永遠記得Elis,記得她為改善香港所有外藉家務工生活條件所作出的貢獻。因Elis之名,因所有曾苦於及正苦於被邊緣化、被排斥、被歧視及被非人對待的人們之名,亞洲移住人士組織誓加強我們的抗爭,要求改變香港及家務工輸出國之政策。

為Elis爭取公義!

AMCB Statement
Justice for Elis! Protect the life and uphold the rights of all FDWs!

We at the Asian Migrants Coordinating Body (AMCB-IMA-HK) are deeply saddened by the death of our member and fellow domestic worker, Elis Kurniasih. She died last March 16, 2015 at the age of 33, due to the massive trauma and internal injuries her body received after the concrete base of an air conditioner fell on her and broke her backbone.

We are one with her two children, the rest of her family and friends in mourning her untimely demise. We are also reminded about her immeasurable contribution to the Association of Indonesian Migrant Workers (ATKI), affiliate of the AMCB, in its activities for the defense of the rights and wellbeing of Indonesian and Asian migrants in Hong Kong.

She was with us in many campaign. She was with us when we stood up and supported our abused sister, Erwiana Sulistyaningsih.

Some would dismiss her case as just another “wrong place at the wrong time” accident. The mathematical probability that such thing may happen, they may say, is so small that what happened can just be considered as a “freak of nature”.

But we beg to differ.

She is not a simple statistic. We cannot dismiss her as another node in the intricate machine of Hong Kong. She was a mother, a friend, a human being, like you and me.

If her case is brushed under the rug, what prevents any incident involving any other person in Hong Kong to be treated as a simple probability?

We need answers. We need the truth. We need accountability. We want to:

1. Conduct a thorough investigation to determine who is accountable for this tragic incident that caused the life of Elis. Those accountable must be prosecuted.

2. Investigate and determine the culpability of the employer and the Sunlight Employment Agency for forcing Elis to stay with the agency and not with her employer.

3. Allow migrant domestic workers (MDWs) to process employment contract without going through employment agency.

4. Demand the Hong Kong SAR government to come up with a new, stricter and pro-active regulation and monitoring of employment agencies, and to actively prosecute those who violate the law and exploit workers and sometimes even employers.

5. Allow live-out arrangement as an option for employers and workers who have mutually agreed to such living arrangement.

The AMCB-IMA-HK shall forever remember Elis for her contributions to make the condition of FDWs in Hong Kong better. In her name and in the names of all those who have suffered and those who continue to suffer in a condition of marginalization, exclusion, discrimination, and inhumane treatment, the AMCB-IMA-HK vows to intensify our struggle for changes in the policies of Hong Kong and of sending countries on domestic workers.

Justice for Elis!
