Yet another family has been hauled to court for maid abuse.On Monday, an 18-year-old girl, together with her mother and mum’s friend, was accused of pulling out two front teeth of Indonesian maid Badingah at a flat in Jalan Minyak off Chin Swee Road.

Nur Rizan Mohd Sazali, who does administration work, is said to have done this with the help of the maid’s employer, Elsa Elyana Said, 24, and at the instigation of her mother, Maselly Abdul Aziz, 37, unemployed.

Her elder brother, Muhammad Iz’aan, 19, a waiter, faces one charge each of maid abuse and wrongful restraint.

Nur Rizan is also accused of using an iron rod and cane to hit the back of Ms Badingah, pouring hot wax onto her head, and restraining her by tying the victim’s hands with a bath robe.

Maselly allegedly used an iron rod to hit Ms Badingah on the head, abetted Nur Rizan to cause grievous hurt to her in the teeth incident, poured hot water onto the maid’s private part, and threatened to kill her if she did not return the money.

The last charge also states that she was holding onto two knives when she made the threat on July 26 last year. (story)
