The Sri Lanka Emabassy in Riyadh has rescued a lanka house maid that has been kept slave by her employer for 17 years, paying no salary and preventing her from communicating with her relatives back home. Local Saudi papers have reported that this is one of the many cases of notorious house maid market in Saudi Arabia .
The maid , Kusuma Nandini, 56, came to Riyadh in 1994 from Sri Lanka and was kept in the house of her sponsor for 15 years before she was transferred to the house of the brother of the employer who kept her for another 2 years but paid her meagre salary.
The case was discovered after the daughter of the maid who lives back home in Sri Lanka informed the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry that her family had not been in contact with her mother for 17 years.
Sunil Wijesinghe, labor welfare officer at the Sri Lankan Embassy said that the case is being raised with the concerned Saudi authorities to release the maid and pay the outstanding salary of SR54,000.
The report added that the maid does not have a passport or a residence permit to prove that she was working in the country. Source.
