Another day, another Indonesian maid dies in Saudi Arabia
Indonesia has demanded an inquiry into reports that a maid working in Saudi Arabia was killed by her employers and her body dumped in a bin (see earlier WVoN story).
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said a team had been sent to the Saudi town of Abha to investigate reports of the murder of 36-year-old Kikim Komalasari.
It comes as officials arrived in Saudi to follow up claims of torture against a second Indonesian maid (see earlier WVoN story).
Sumiati Binti Salan Mustapa is recovering in hospital in Medina.
Her injuries include gashes to her face and cuts to her lips, allegedly inflicted by her employers using scissors. She was also burned with an iron, officials say.
Indonesia’s president has demanded justice for the “extraordinary torture”.
