A friend, who is a Hong Kong citizen and resident, needs legal advice about a family matter. In short, she suspects a family member is abusing her elderly, terminally ill father (who is widowed), but this person will not allow her to see him. Each time she begs to see him, she gets a blunt refusal. Similarly, other family friends are not allowed into the apartment to see if the elderly man is okay.
In short, can anyone recommend a lawyer, or is this a police matter? Given that my friend has limited finances, legal aid, or advice from a lawyer who doesn't change the earth, is appreciated.
