A woman tortured her maid to death in an attempt to force her to become better at housework. The Emirati woman abused the Ethiopian maid daily after she moved in during Ramadan, Abu Dhabi Criminal Court heard.
She poured boiling water over the maid and tied her up with electrical wire – she was found dead in the woman’s bathroom, reported 7daysinDubai.
The employer told the court: ‘I only beat her up. I just wanted her to do the housework properly. I didn’t mean to hurt or kill her.’ The accused woman’s two children said they had witnessed the daily torture.
Her daughter told prosecutors: ‘ One day, during Ramadan, I found my mother beating up the maid. She poured boiling water on her body and threw pepper in her eyes.’
