Saudi Maid Abuse
I don't care what sort of religion of peace glue the folks in charge have been sniffing for the last decade. When I saw the headline "Maid Tortured with Nails" I knew that her employers would be in or be from Saudi Arabia. Why? Because every time a news item about house workers being tortured or held captive pop up its always the same bunch of self-righteous jerk offs who are responsible.
S.Lanka maid who worked in Saudi has 24 nails in body
A Sri Lankan housemaid with 24 nails embedded in her body after allegedly being tortured by her employer is to undergo surgery on Friday, her doctors said.
L. T. Ariyawathi, 49, said her employer in Saudi Arabia inflicted the injuries on her as a punishment.
She flew back to Sri Lanka last week and was admitted to Kamburupitiya hospital in the island's south, hospital director Prabath Gajadeera told AFP on Thursday.
She is lucky though. She might have ended up like that Philippina maid in Jordan who had a cinder block dropped on her head by an angry mob of men for some infraction or another.
