Child abuse maid’s sentence doubled




AN Indonesian woman who is already serving 10 years behind bars for child abuse has had her sentence doubled after being found guilty of a similar offence.

The 27-year-old former housemaid was originally convicted in February of sexually molesting an eight-year-old Bahraini girl at her employer’s home in Sitra.

Following the trial, the victim’s cousin came forward with further allegations of abuse ‘“ claiming to have been forced to strip by the maid, who then touched her inappropriately at her family’s Isa Town home.

The allegations date back to 2010, according to court documents, when the girl was aged 10.

She did not speak out about the abuse for three years because she had been told ‘not to tell anyone’, the court heard.

The former housemaid will now be imprisoned for 20 years before being deported back to Indonesia.

‘We found the defendant guilty of molestation because of her confession, the medical examiner’s report and victim’s testimony,’ read the High Criminal Court’s verdict.
