Migrant Worker Abused by Saudi Employer

Posted on 31 January 2011 by hashimilion

Armayeh binti Sanuri, an Indonesian migrant worker from Pontianak, West Kalimantan, has become the latest victim of abuse in Saudi Arabia.

The Indonesia Migrant Worker Post of Struggle (Posper TKI) reported that Armayeh suffered wounds to her head, and her ears were infected after her employer stepped on her and scalded her with hot water.

Armayeh was sent to Saudi Arabia last year by a migrant worker placement firm, PT Aji Ayah Bunda Sejati. Posper TKI’s report claims Armayeh was abused almost daily and that she escaped from her employer’s house when the door was left unlocked.

She was found by neighbors and brought to the Al Anshar Hospital in Medina. Due to her condition, Armayeh was transferred to King Fahd Hospital in Medina in Jan. 26, where she is receiving assistance from the Indonesian consulate general.
