An Indonesian domestic worker who was kept isolated and unpaid for years in Jordan has returned home. Diah Anggraini, 36, lost contact with her family in October 2006 after she left for Jordan. From 2006 to 2018, she was denied her rights as a worker and as a human being – her rights to free movement and to fair payment, as well as being denied any contact with her family.

Andy Rachmianto, Indonesia’s ambassador to Jordan, said in a statement that Diah claimed to have been treated inhumanely and being unpaid. She had to run away in order to return home.

The Indonesian government was able to locate her after investigating the situation with the assistance of multiple groups. In December, results from the investigation indicated that the woman had been undocumented since 2014.

A release by the Indonesian Ministry of Manpower issued last week pointed out that Diah was unable to speak Indonesian properly after not speaking it for years. She was given shelter by the Indonesian Embassy in Amman as the authorities tried to get compensation for her.

Diah’s ex-employer and the embassy made a deal that got her 127 million rupiah (US$9,000) in lieu of 12 years of wages, about two-thirds of what she was owed.

While living at the embassy, Diah studied the Indonesian language and took a health-massage class that the government offered her as a new career option for when she returns home.

On Monday, Diah finally returned home to Indonesia, with the opportunity of a fresh start.

  22. Cualquier profesional que se precie, sabe que cuando se compra un repuesto para un electrodoméstico en un comercio y te lo instalas tú por tu cuenta, por muy profesional que seas, no se da ningún tipo de garantía. Conozco la trayectoria de esa marca italiana, perteneciente primero al grupo MERLONI ELETTRODOMESTICI, junto con las otras marcas del grupo: HOT POINT, ARISTON y la francesa SCHOLTES. Me refiero a la venta del KNOW HOW , sea, le vendió aparatos completos, tecnología y fabricación de los mismos e incluso las cadenas de montaje. Y finalmente, MONTSE, tu tercer error fue no informarte bien del Servicio de la marca INDESIT. Me da la impresión por tu comentario que te estás dirigiendo a INDESIT, reclamando por la actuación de su Servicio Técnico.

  25. Una vez lo he consultado quería saber donde puedo comprar el cacillo M 30 M 25 para monodosis E.S.E pues he llamado a el sat que figura en Illescas Toledo y me dicen que no tienen nada de recambios ni que son sat de minimoka. Si hay alguno en Madrid que tengáis seguridad que tiene accesorios para comprarlos agradecería la dirección datos. La única web oficial de Minimoka es esta que ya conoces y, de momento, al menos, no tenemos venta de recambios ni accesorios por internet.

  26. Thank you, I have just been searching for information about this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve came upon till now. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you certain concerning the supply?

  27. Hoy los precios en lo que al satélite se refiere son cada vez más ajustados en España donde siempre hemos tenido cuotas por encima de otros países europeos (en referencia a precios de ADSL) como Francia, Reino Unido, Estonia Alemania. Pero ya les decíamos, que quede claro que la banda ancha no compartida por satélite nada tiene que ver con el ADSL, es más eficaz y permite servicios bidireccionales. El problema del Internet por Satelite, es el precio, en paises latinoamericanos, es muy dificil poder pagar este servicio. Me gustaria que se contactara alguie conmigo para informarme de servicios y costos de internet satelital en mi area.

  29. Me dijeron q no tenian constancia de ella y que llamase al servicio de transporte, me puse en contacto con ellos y me mandaron el albaran de entrega. Podeis encargar las reparaciones fuera de garantia para HTC desde nuestra web, a unos precios competitivos y con tiempos de reparación realmente rápidos. Lo que quiero decir es que los problemas dependen más de los programas que uses que de la diferencia entre la rom .0 ó .1. y el cambio de rom no es sencillo. No te preocupes mas por eso, ahora empieza tu sufrimiento para ver cuanto tiempo tardan en reparartela.
