A domestic worker is under investigation after her former employer in Abu Dhabi noticed a photo of her on Instagram wearing items of jewelry missing from the employer’s home.

According to the employer, the Asian domestic worker, whose identity and nationality were withheld by UAE authorities, recently returned to her home country after her contract ended, The Filipino Times reported. Shortly after, a new domestic worker was hired.

Later, the employer discovered that some gold jewelry was missing, and she initially accused her new domestic worker of theft. However, the employer then saw a photo of her jewelry posted to her former domestic worker’s Instagram account.

In the photo, the domestic worker is seen wearing the jewelry and asking interested buyers to contact her. When the employer saw this, she immediately filed a complaint and submitted the evidence to an Abu Dhabi court.

The case is currently under investigation.
