Maid Pleads Not Guilty to Attempted Murder

Hanni Seo, a foreign maid who allegedly attacked her employer last week, has been charged with attempted murder. The 23-year-old woman from Kupang, Indonesia, reportedly attacked 42-year-old Phang Kian Huang with a wooden stool, pestle and kitchen knife at an apartment at Rifle Range in Air Itam on 26 February 2009 at 10am.

Phang was asleep at the time of the attack, which she sustained broken ribs and a nearly-severed ear.

On Thursday in Sessions Court, Hanni’s charge was read to her several times before she understood and pleaded not guilty. As Hanni had no lawyer, judge Roslan Hamid ordered the prosecution to write to the Indonesian consulate to engage a lawyer for her.

The judge then fixed the case for mention on 2 April 2009 but denied Hanni bail because she is a foreigner.
