Filipina maid tortured and killed in Kuwait

By Staff

A Kuwaiti couple tortured their Filipina housemaid for many days before murdering her and dumping her body in a stable in the Gulf emirate, a newspaper reported on Monday.

The unnamed man and his wife in Kuwait City decided to get rid of the maid to prevent her from reporting the torture to the police, the Arabic language daily 'Alanba' said.

“They clubbed her so she fell unconscious and took her by their car to a stable, where they opened the back door and dumped her….they then drove backwards and crushed her body.”

The paper said the couple’s son told police that he had seen his mother torturing the maid many times.

At a session on Sunday, a court which is trying the couple on charges of premeditated murder adjourned hearings to March 6.
