Protesters gather outside courtroom
They had gathered in front of the Hong Kong High Court yesterday morning, waiting for the verdict on British banker Rurik Jutting.
The dozen or so protesters from the Network of Indonesian Migrant Workers and Asian Migrants' Coordinating Body (AMCB) carried placards bearing the names of the two victims, Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasih, both Indonesians.
They demanded justice for the victims and wanted an end to violence towards women.
Ms Sringatin, a spokesman for AMCB, said: "Justice for the two murder victims (is) also justice to all women migrants in Hong Kong and elsewhere in the world."
She also read statements from the families of the two victims.
"Since the death of Ms Mujiasih, her mother has been suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure which damaged her eyesight. Her father is unable to work any more because he needs to take care of his wife and elderly grandmother."
Ms Mujiasih's family added that they would be seeking compensation.
