In these months, the problem of domestic helpers and immigrants from mainland China is being discussed in Hong Kong. Most of the citizens in Hong Kong struggle against providing welfares and the right to abode in Hong Kong to these kinds of people. However, Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-Kiun said today in the general assembly held by HKSYU that these two cases show the problem of discrimination in Hong Kong.


He said that domestic helpers shared burdens on housework for many families in Hong Kong. People are able to work and leave all housework for them to handle. He said that to some extent domestic helpers participated in developing Hong Kong’s economy. However, Hong Kong government is selfish and unfair to them as she tried to limit their rights of abode in Hong Kong. He said that what domestic helpers need are the caring and help from others. Therefore, he said that it is reasonable for them to get the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance from the government if they really need help from the government.


Joseph also commented on the suggestion on The Budget about new immigrants that they need to live in Hong Kong for at least seven years in order to apply for the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance from government. He said that this suggestion is not appropriate as the approval of assistance shouldn’t be related to their efforts to Hong Kong. He said that the assistance is not equal to insurance that they could receive more if they devote more. He said that new immigrants are permanent residents in Hong Kong and they should get the same rights as others regardless of their effort.


Regarding the court case about the right to abode in Hong Kong for domestic helpers, Joseph said that it is unreasonable for Hong Kong government to apply for the interpretation of law from the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. He said that according to the Basic Law, Court of Final Appeal is the only court that can apply for it. Also, he said that keep on applying for the interpretation may destruct the judiciary independence in Hong Kong, which is important under the One Country, Two System.
