Jobless Pinay in HK nabbed for leaving kids at home to drink overnight

A Filipina who left her children alone in their flat in Kowloon, Hong Kong, so that she could drink overnight was arrested by the police Friday last week, reports said Tuesday.
Citing Chinese language news site Sing Tao Daily, Asia Times reported that the Filipina was arrested for suspected child abuse the morning after she left her kids at their flat on Cheung Sha Wan Road.
The Filipina told police that she left her children home at Wellcome Mansion to get a drink after they had fallen asleep at 9 p.m. on Thursday.
Her neighbor, however, alerted police after they found her children, aged five and two, crying at the window of their tenth-floor flat on Friday morning.
According to Apple Daily, another Chinese language news site, the Filipina is currently unemployed and is alone in raising her children as her Tunisian husband was denied re-entry early this year.
Her husband was first granted entry to Hong Kong as a refugee and torture claimant. She was noted to have a Hong Kong identity card.
Hong Kong's Social Welfare Department said the family was already under monitoring by a social worker before the incident.
They stated that the two children, deemed psychologically stable and uninjured, will be provided with childcare services for the meantime. —Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
