Maid Allegedly Burned By Saudi Employer

A Filipino maid has been left covered in burns after her Saudi boss’s mother allegedly threw boiling water at her as punishment for not making coffee quick enough.

The 23-year-old was not taken to hospital for hours, despite suffering scarring to her back and legs.

Once there, she passed her cousin’s phone number to hospital staff and urged them to call for help.

When she returned for a check-up, her cousin arrived to take her home. She is now in the care of the Philippine Embassy

Saudi Arabia in August last year passed landmark legislation aimed at protecting women, children and domestic workers against hidden violence.

The ‘Protection from Abuse’ law was the first of its kind in the kingdom, which has often faced international criticism for lacking laws that protect women and domestic staff against abuse.

Saudi households are highly dependent on housemaids from African and South Asian countries. In some reported cases maids have attacked the children of their employers after suffering abuse.

Saudi Arabia last year beheaded a young Sri Lankan housemaid after rejecting appeals by her home country to spare her life following a death sentence imposed for the killing of an infant left in her care in 2005.
