A Saudi employer whose wife tortured the family’s Indonesian housemaid to death has been sentenced to nine months in prison for failing to intervene and save the maid’s life.
Such women think that they're leaving their poor conditions to work for rich and decent Arab employers. Unfortunately, they're treated like garbage; often, beaten for the smallest of infractions. They can't even get help from anyone in Arabia since most don't speak Arabic and, like all women, they're not allowed to leave their residence and travel alone.
“There is another case of cold-blooded murder from Eastern Province in which a Saudi employer is being tried for beating his maid to death,” said Wishnu Krishnamurthi, vice consul at the Indonesian Embassy. “The police have found the sticks used in the assaults and the blood-stained clothes of the maid, Suryapi Dulbari, 31,” he added.
The story gets more horrid:
The maid’s family has accepted blood money in compensation for the death.
This means that the murderous woman will, likely, not get any punishment. The wealthy Arabs can cruelly kill people and get away with it by paying approximately $53,333.
