Protesters demonstrate against a Filipino domestic helper applying for permanent residency outside the High Court of Hong Kong September 30, 2011. A Filipina domestic helper has won the opening legal battle in her bid to gain right of abode in Hong Kong. The High Court ruled that it is unconstitutional for the government to deny foreign domestic helpers permanent residency. But the judge also stressed this did not mean they should automatically be granted such status, government radio reported.
