    HONG KONG: A Hong Kong woman accused of torturing her Indonesian maid in a case that sparked international concern on Tuesday denied all the charges against her. Law Wan-tung, a 44-year-old mother-of-two, was arrested in January for seriously wounding Erwiana Sulistyaningsih, her former domestic helper. She faces charges including grievous bodily harm with intent, criminal intimidation and failure to pay wages—a total of 20 counts, some of which also relate to her previous employees. Prosecutors have said she turned household items such as a mop, a ruler and a clothes hanger into “weapons” against her maids. Erwiana, who said she suffered months of abuse, left Hong Kong in January and was admitted to hospital in Indonesia, emaciated and in a critical condition.
