Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 17, 2010

Imagine this nightmare. You hire an Indonesian maid to take care of your 8 month old baby only to have your trust betrayed. The maid threatened to kill the baby if not sent home by the employer. Nurhasanah had requested 3 times to be sent home and eventually reached a desperate point when she held a pair of scissors up to the baby. The victim drove to the airport immediately and purchased a plane ticket for the maid. The police were called and justice served. 2 years in jail. (link)

Sally Ang Poh Choo jailed for offences against maid

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 27, 2008

To teach her maid a lesson, finance officer Sally Ang Poh Choo used marker pens to draw lines on the Indonesian maid’s face. It was Ang’s way of punishing Miss Sri Hartuti Rokiman for not closing the front door properly while she was washing the family’s car parked in the front porch of the house in Eastwood Place off Bedok Road.

Miss Sri Hartuti, 26, ran away from her employers the next day and reported the matter to the police. A doctor found scratches and slight bleeding on her face. The maid had also asked a neighbour and her maid to take photographs of her scratches and bruises.

Ang, 44, a mother of two teenagers, 14 and 16, was jailed three weeks and fined $1,500 on Thursday for hurting her maid on five occasions over a two-month period. (story)

Indonesian maid caught abusing baby on video

Posted by jtsmyth8 on February 5, 2008

I hope the baby grows up healthy. You can’t be too careful when you hire others to look after your kids. This makes me sick. The maid should be made to suffer exactly how she made the baby suffer.

“An Indonesian maid has been arrested by Singapore police for abusing her employers’ two-month old baby boy at their home, after a video recording showing her hitting and kicking the infant was posted by the parents on YouTube. The maid, who is in her mid 20s, has been released on bail, after questioning by the police. But investigations are still ongoing.

The baby’s parents were shocked when they saw recorded images of the maid abusing the baby, which were captured by a closed circuit TV they had installed recently.” (story) Youtube video
