A Saudi employer did not pay his housemaid for nearly 13 years and prevented her from travelling home before he was arrested by police.

Relatives of the maid reported the employer to the police in the Eastern Qatif town after he also prevented her from going out and seized her mobile phone.

Sada and other newspapers said police managed to recover the maid’s payments of SR98,000 (Dh98,000) and free her from her employer, who was arrested.
