Innocent Filipina Maid Sad Story.

“I want to go back to the Philippines. I don’t want to stay her any more,” she said, describing her three days in custody as “very, very scary”.

Traumatic ang naging karanasan ng isa nating kabayan na nagtatrabaho bilang isang kasambahay dito sa UAE. Ang mapagbintangan eh isang napakahirap at napakasakit na pakiramdam lalo na kung wala ka naman talagang kasalanan, ano pa kaya kung makulong ka ng dahil dito.
Mabuti na lamang at nakita ng amo ang pera at inamin na nagkamali siya ng pag akusa sa ating kabayan.

Eh kung mag sampa kaya ng kaso itong ating kabayan laban sa kanyang amo sa kahihiyan, sa perwisyo na kanyang natamo?

I just hope na maging maayos ang buhay nitong ating kabayan.

A maid wrongly accused of stealing Dhs10,000 has been rehired by her accuser.

The Filipina spent three days in police detention last month before her Emirati employer found the money and admitted she had made a mistake. The maid was released from a holding cell in Abu Dhabi’s Khalidiyah police station on February 12 and is now working in a beauty salon owned by her accuser.

The maid was rehired by her employer at a salon

“I was worried to start working for my madam again, but she said I could work at the beauty salon and that she would never cause trouble for me,” the Filipina said.

She added that the beauty salon job was easier than working as a maid. “My employer is very friendly to me now. I see her when she comes to the salon,” she said. The salon, in Khalifa City A, is several miles from the employer’s home, where the maid worked until her arrest on February 9.

She was accused of taking Dhs10,000 from the house and of withdrawing an unknown amount of money using her employer’s credit card. She was in the Abu Dhabi courts this week, along with a representative from the Filipino embassy, to have prosecutors drop the case and get her passport back.

It can take several weeks to process the paperwork, as police have to confirm to prosecutors that they have no case before the charges can be officially dropped and the passport returned.

“I want to go back to the Philippines. I don’t want to stay her any more,” she said, describing her three days in custody as “very, very scary”.

Her employer has accepted that the woman wants to leave and will pay for her flight home. The Filipina now cleans and makes coffee at the beauty salon and has a valid work visa until late 2014.

“My employer says I can stay on, but I don’t really want to. I’d like to go home as soon as possible,” she said. The Philippines embassy is working to have her passport returned as soon as possible. The employer said she will pay for the flight whenever the paperwork is ready.
