Statement : The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has learned that Erwiana has arrived in Hong Kong to attend a series of medical examination to support her case against her former abusive employer, Law Wan Tung. We, however, deplore the fact how the Indonesian government and the Hong Kong authorities have been treating her more like a prisoner than a victim who needs genuine protection. Upon her arrival on 7 April 2014 at around 4 p.m., Erwiana was escorted by the staff of the Indonesian consulate and the Hong Kong police to go directly to the Indonesian consulate and to stay there during her visit in Hong Kong. Erwiana was not given any choice but to join them, as she and the team from Indonesia – who has been consistently assisting her since the beginning – were threatened to be deported if they refuse to go to the Indonesian consulate.
