HONG KONG: A Hong Kong woman was jailed for six years on Friday for beating and starving her Indonesian maid and keeping her prisoner. Law Wan-tung—who had faced a maximum sentence of seven years—“showed no compassion” to Erwiana Sulistyaningsih and other domestic staff, said judge Amanda Woodcock in handing down the sentence. Law saw her staff as “people that are beneath her” said Woodcock. Of Sulistyaningsih’s treatment she added: “She was given little rest, sleep and nutrition which left her a shadow of her former self.”
