A Filipina domestic worker was found dead after allegedly committing suicide by jumping from the seventh floor of an apartment building in Shenzhen last July 24.

More than a month later, Hong Kong police arrested her employers in Wanchai for suspectedly giving a false statement to immigration officials regarding the place of work of the Filipina they hired, Asia Times reported.

Lorain Asuncion, 28, was employed by Hong Kong couple with surnames Gu and Liu but was taken five times to the mainland in Shenzhen to work in the home of Liu’s father for 40 days. It was during their last trip across the border when the Filipina reportedly took her own life.

The victim’s relatives went to Hong Kong last month to demand justice for Asuncion, whose death was treated as a suicide and a human trafficking case.

Her employers were released on bail but were directed to report to police by mid-September to face the charges against them.

According to the Labor Department, if proven that they have made a false statement to the Immigration Department, the couple can face up to 14 years in prison and pay a fine of up to HK$150,000 or P981,000, Asia Times reported.
