Slavery in abuse in Saudi Arabia

Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America
in response to reader comment: SLAVERY DOES INDEED OCCUR IN SAUDI ARABIA!!!!

Submitted by Zeenz (United States), Sep 23, 2011 at 11:23

A Phillipino friend told me that her cousin went to work in S.A as a maid and was very mistreated, but she managed to run away.She worked all the time and was not allowed to eat. She could only go out with the woman of the house.She escaped 3 months into her misery when they went out shopping. She escaped to the Phillipino consulate and from there she was able to go back home.

If you go to YouTube you can see cases about the suffering of these poor women. One was even accused of theft and had her arm chopped off below the elbow.The Phillipine government should educate the people about the dangers of going to work in S.A. It should stop people from going to work in SA. But the money they may get back is more important than the safety of their citizens. And shame on the US government for giving the Saudis special treatment just because of their money and power.
