A 66-year-old Indian woman lost an appeal in Singapore’s High Court on Tuesday against a ruling that she had abused her daughter’s Indonesian maid in 2012 and 2013.
Anpalaki Muniandy Marimuthu was convicted of six charges of hurting a domestic worker named Sriyatun, 27, and jailed for 16 months, according to The Straits Times, on September 23, 2016. However, Anpalaki was allowed to grant bail as she had filed an appeal against the sentence.
On Monday, she lost that appeal and proposed to start her jail term in two weeks’ time. The judge, criticizing her for her brutal behavior, only postponed the term by a day so that she could celebrate her birthday with family at home, Liane Wanbao reported.
In February 2012, Sriyatun started working in a flat on Bendemeer Road. In her job, she was physically and mentally abused by Anpalaki and her 43-year-old daughter, Jayasheela Jayaraman. Her left ear was slapped so many times it is now permanently disabled.
The maid was injured in various parts of her body and had thoughts of committing suicide, according to the prosecutor. On Oct 25, 2013, the maid successfully escaped from the flat after a similar attempt had failed the previous day.
Last September, Jayasheela was found guilty of three charges of causing hurt to the maid. She was jailed for 12 months and ordered to pay the maid S$840 (US$602.8) in compensation. She lost an appeal in early April.
Only that amount?…… Tell them to give them back that amount and you will do the same thing to them…..
ay naku! why so linient with the employer? pag ofw ang nagkasala taon taon ang parusa pag naman locals masyadong mababa. dparin pala talaga maganda ang justice system nila.
can that money replace her ear? or cover her other injury? if that one of my family getting that abuse i just slap the money to their ear until they lost their hearing, then throw the money to their face.
Why so little money, they must pay more than that
Only that amount will pay for what that evil woman done to her.maid ? For god sake…
Justice for the victim…$840 its not enough
Must pay her 2yrs salary for her compensation.
Can’t pay back with that amount..
Amount so little?
How about the maid permanent damaged hearing? Is is compensated too?….memang bloody pariah, always shows no matter what. These 2 monster should be given severe punishment. Lash them.in public, would be better.
That’s why some maid resorted to more vicious revenge when they are push to wall. Itom na ug panit, itom pa gyud ug kasing-kasing.
She lost her hearing. What us the damages due. What is MOM going to do about it. The $800+ compensation is for what. To buy a hearing aid.
