A Filipino domestic worker has allegedly been stabbed to death by her employer in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.
A friend named FireWood Fairudz Fernandez said in a Facebook post on Monday that her close friend Norkisah Lymanh had wanted to return home to the Philippines as her contract was about to end – but her employer would not allow her to leave.
Fernandez said the employer stabbed Lymanh to death but told police that she had killed herself. She said Lymanh’s corpse would be repatriated to Manila on May 14.
Fernandez said Lymanh was a good friend who had worked hard to provide for her family.
She said Lymanh’s employer did not allow her to use her mobile phone. She was only allowed to speak to her family in the Philippines when she sent them money.
On Lymanh’s passport she is listed as 26 years old (born in 1992). However, a statement issued by Dirab Police Station had Lymanh as 30, with her name spelt as “Nour Kishia”.
“His housemaid, NOUR KISHIA, age 30 years has stabbed herself by a knife (sic) to her chest inside the kitchen in their house,” the police report said.
Fernandez urged people to share her post in the hope it would reach the Philippine government.
So far, there have been no reports in the media about the maid’s death or statements from the Philippine Embassy.

Having hearts so big and kind so that they are able to forgive the domestic worker who killed their child makes the Balawi couple a big beacon to humanity. If more of us were like them, there would be true peace in our world. I will always remember them in my prayers – to wish them the best blessings from God and that more and more people may learn about them and imitate them.
A big point in my life would be if the Lord will allow me to meet Mr. and Mrs. Balawi.
Ronnie Guevarra Esguerra there’s no safe place here in this world wherever u go meron at meron trahedya.kahit anong pag iingat mo.
Dito sa saudi or kahit saang arab kapag mahina ka at di lumalaban sa kanila kawawain ka nila pero kung palaban ka takot din naman sila. Pero sana ung mga agency na nag hihire dapat sana may connection sila sa mga dh hindi ung porket tapos na nilang pinagkakitaan goodbye nalang
