Maid Filmed During Beating, Kills Herself

An investigation has been launched in Lebanon after an Ethiopian housemaid committed suicide a week after video was aired of her being dragged through the street and abducted.

Ethiopia’s consul general said Alem Dechasa killed herself on Wednesday, a week after the LBCI television channel played amateur footage of her being lifted off the ground by her hair and forced head-first into a car.

The horrifying footage sparked national outrage in Lebanon.

The Lebanese cabinet condemned the violent incident and ordered an investigation into the matter before Ms Dechasa died.

But the campaign group Human Rights Watch (HRW) is calling for a wider investigation into the ill treatment of domestic workers.

It also wants to know why there appeared to be no follow up into Ms Dechasa’s case after she received hospital treatment.

HRW director for Beirut Nadim Houri said: “Obviously her death is a tragedy. What makes it a bigger tragedy is that we think it could have been prevented.

“Her case is not unique, unfortunately, in Lebanon. In the study released a year-and-a-half ago, we saw an average of one death per week of migrant domestic worker in the country, often they commit suicide, so it’s a broader systemic issue.

  1. Oh, she committed suicide? How did she die? I hope it was not suicide like that girlfriend in CA who hung herself after she first bound her hands and feet!

  2. I am not shocked at all! I have heard about lebanese; they are ruthless and heartless people. They are considered minority when they migrate to Europe and to most western countries and they try to play that game to other migrant in their country. What the Ethiopian government should do is, close the Embassy and consider legal option on international level! I heard these people are animals! and still live in the stone age mentality. I pray the blood of this ethiopian girl would be (EDITED) I hate you Lebanese ! the world should know you! may god strike you all in tragedy, disease, famine. (EDITED)
