This is totally absurd, inhuman and so cruel to starve one to death. This couple who committed heinous crime should be severely punished if found guilty. Bloody #%@&#%.. :mad: :mad: :mad:

This is not uncommon. A Minister's sister is my neighbour I practically feed her maid, as most of the time she is underfed.

Used to smuggle fresh veg and meat for a neighbour's maid ... Her expat employer only allowed her Maggie Mee and nothing else. Needless to say, after serving her intial contract with this bunch of people, she was diagnosed as severely anaemic :( .

If found guilty, they should at the least be sentenced to life imprisonment with no parole. :mad:

Is it any surprise there are animals in our midst? Well even animals feed their young properly. :mad:

This man must be worse than animal. Many of us would sacrifice our own food so our children can eat. I wonder what the father looks like. I hope he is not well fed :mad:

Some employers are sick themselves and should be punished

My friend's 1st maid told the neighbour's maid that she wasn't given enough food. In actual fact, she ate only the dishes and not the rice as she want to 'jaga badan'. Then later when she was booted back after 1.5 years, only then did the neighbour realised that she was the liar. The second maid was a gem and negate all the 1st maid's claims and stayed on for 4.5 years. Most often than not, there are two sides to a coin.

But if, the employers are so cruel and mean, then they should be blacklisted from having maids. Perhaps, a health check should be done before they go home to ensure they were not mistreated. A case like this will jeopardise Indonesia's consent now...sigh! :(
