Filipino maid is ‘tied to a tree by her wealthy Saudi Arabian employers as punishment for leaving furniture outside in the sun’
The Filipino maid is tied to a tree by her wealthy Saudi employers, to punish her for her exposure to the sun.
A Filipina maid was allegedly tied to a tree as a punishment for leaving furniture in the sun.
Lovely Acosta Baruelo (26) has been working for several months for a wealthy family in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
But she would have annoyed her employers after leaving expensive furniture in the heat where it could fade in the sun.
A colleague, also from the Philippines, took pictures of the alleged punishment and showed Lovely, who was tied to her wrists and legs on May 9 on a tree in the family’s garden.
It is believed that the family of the Middle East acted to show him the effects of staying in the sun.
The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) said he became aware of the situation and helped the mother twice to return home.
The spokesman said: ‘The Foreign Ministry (FDFA) has announced that the Filipino foreign worker (OFW), the beautiful Acosta Baruelo, from Saudi Arabia, arrived in Manila at 20:55. May 9, 2019.
The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh reported that SAW Baruelo’s case was returned to him on 9 May and was returned to him the same day. SAW Baruelo was reportedly punished by his employer by being tied to a tree. ‘
One woman, claiming to be Acosta’s colleague, asked for help and said that her employer would hurt her if she made small mistakes.
Lovely has since returned to her family in La Union, Philippines.
This week, the worker surveyed said, “Thank you to everyone who helped me, I would also like to ask for help for the other remaining Filipinos, they helped me and uploaded my photos. I hope they are saved too.
“You old man is going to find your karma, only you’re waiting, keep deducting our wages, that’s why you’re in poor health, it’s your karma for all the bad things you’ve done.”
An estimated 2.3 million Filipinos work in the Middle East and Africa. More than half of them are women.
There have been many complaints that they are being abused by their new employers.
