A Singaporean woman who had dismissed five foreign domestic workers within 14 months was found not guilty of physically abusing a Filipino woman during her employment as the sixth maid in the family.
The defendant, a self-employed beauty specialist, provided such services at her apartment in Clementi, Singapore. In court, she denied hurting her maid by kicking her on two occasions in 2015, on August 19 and September 4, Lianhe Wanbao (Singapore) reported.
The Filipino domestic helper, who was hired in July 2015, was the family’s sixth maid since May 2014, and she was sent back to the employment agency around six weeks after her hiring, on September 5, 2015.
The Filipino woman told the court that she had been beaten nearly every day during her stay at the defendant’s home. Whenever she made a minor mistake, the woman would punish physically such as by slapping her face, pulling her hair or even caning her, she claimed.
On one occasion, the maid was allegedly forced by the defendant to drink dirty water while she was cleaning the toilet.
On September 4, 2015, the Singaporean woman became angry and allegedly threatened to kill the maid if she failed to pack and go within five minutes. The Filipino spent the night with her belongings in the staircase of the apartment building. In the morning, the Singaporean woman’s husband took the maid back to the employment agency.
However, the court found that the maid’s statement contained inconsistencies, particularly related to the allegations of being kicked by the defendant. In addition, a bruise on the maid’s left leg failed to match her statement. Doctors could not find slap or cane marks during a medical examination.
Hence, the court found the defendant not guilty of two charges of physical abuse against the Filipino.
Aaron Dominic …Sir,and employer wont????????????????????
Nothing to say coz court has already a decision.. Perhaps everything is true.. Only God knows what was happened between employer and her maids.
Yham David hahaha hi 5 korect your comment
Contact president duterte if this case abuser the Filipino and not guilty the employer
Roger Lim hahahaha u r singaporean of course u r in defendant’s side
Statement from other maids? Or they reluctant to cooperate?
Esmar Hernandez … yap, that woman needs a FIRM HAND TO HANDLE HER CRUELNESS …
The fact that she kick her out of the house n let the maid sleep in the staircase until the husband took the maid back to the employment agency says it all for me about the witch.I dont think anyone here including Roger Lim would do that to his own maid.To me thats just evil n cruel.
Maid are lowly educated and they can easily manipulated by lawyers during cross examination.Further they are marks n scars on her body showed she encountered beatings exaggerated perhaps but definitely beating.
Lastly so many maids in a short period???!!True maids would have complained but uneducated n poor people may not understand their rights …perhaps they are happy just to get out!!!
I think the judge is plain wrong there are circumstantial evidence to corroborate the maid evidence.
The Philippines Embassy in Singapore should look into this n lodge an appeal against decision of the stupid judge!!!
Something is not right here. A thorough investigation must be re conducted to assure the rest of us that the maid was not lying. Hiring and firing so many in 14 months is very unusual.
Aaron Dominic, tells a lot about Singaporeans like you and Roger. Arrogant and rude. As if maids are not humans. LKY has one regret: The dehumanisation of Ah Bengs.
Think of it… If she really abusive, then why the previous maid dont report? Why the agencies still giving her maids? Firing the maid in short period does not mean they abusive… The maid failed to give solid proof and nowdays many maid are making stories… Dont simply accused people abuse when they fired many maids in short period. If your new boss dont like your performance during probation does not mean he is abusive…
Please read Aaron’s posting carefully….he did not say only maids can make up stories
Money under the table. Maybe she used to to do that. To pledge not guilty.
Lhornz Camaclang Tq. I am happy to note your approval of my comments. It’s the truth.
Maybe they are morexxxx
Yham David just pray that one day this bitch employer will have a taste of her own medicine. She can escape now but the next time she wont be. The universe will deal with her in the most horrible way.
Stuart friends tell me that Singaporean women generally known to be wicked. This is what i was told. The amount of maid abuse recorded in history tells u something. Whether this woman is guilty or not only she knows. She can fool the court this time but she will not be able to fool the judges all the time. Maids are not part of her property for her to do such horrible act of barbarism. She will reap what she has planted. The maid agency supplying her the 5 maids in less than 2 yrs shud be the best person to testify. Changing 5 maids in less than 2 yrs is totally absurd. This lafy is a bitch!
Maybe true she never abuse the maid..but 5 maid within a few months..must be something wrong with her being an employer..MOM should ban or investigate into the matter..you can have a perfect maid.
