On Thursday (Nov 26), 48-year-old James Ong Teck Keong was found guilty of five charges, mostly of causing hurt to a domestic helper.

Ong had contested the charges at trial, but the judge found him guilty of most of the charges after reviewing the evidence, including his admissions in police statements.

The victim was employed by Ong and his wife in August 2014 as a domestic helper, with the abuse beginning in late 2015.

He slapped her face on three occasions between late 2015 and 2016, when he was unhappy with her attitude or her work. He also threw a filled water bottle at her shortly after the second slapping incident.

The victim tried to commit suicide by jumping from the corridor on the ninth floor.

Ong’s wife, along with the other maid, restrained the victim.

The abuse was uncovered when the police investigated the attempted suicide.
