    The Hong Kong government is appealing against a landmark ruling that could let maids from abroad gain permanent residency.

    In September, a lower court judge found that an immigration provision, denying foreign maids the right to apply for permanent residency after seven years, as other foreign residents can, was unconstitutional.
