On 4 September 2020, a migrant domestic worker, Parti Liyani (Yani), was fully acquitted at the High Court by Justice Chan Seng Onn, of charges of theft that had previously been levelled against her. Justice Chan Seng Onn has acquitted Yani of all 4 charges. In his judgment, he stated that the Liew family had “improper motives” and wanted to stop Yani from going to the authorities to report that she had been made to clean Mr Karl Liew’s office and house, besides working at the family home. 

We would also like to highlight the systemic difficulties that migrant workers, such as Yani, face when they are wrongfully accused. Such migrant workers are left waiting in a foreign country while investigations are ongoing, without any indication of the length of such investigations. In Yani’s case, she was arrested on 2 December 2016, charged on 31 August 2017, and has spent almost four years at HOME’s shelter, waiting for the conclusion of her case. 

We DEMAND a public apology from Liew Mun Leong and his disgraceful family, and appropriate compensation to Ms Parti for the suffering she had to go through.
