Not So New.........

Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America

Submitted by S (Canada), Jun 17, 2005 at 14:08

About 12 years ago, it happened as well on the next street that I have lived on for nearly 20 years.
A wealthy Palestinian family kept a Filipina young slave. She was with the family for years in another country but about 2 years in Canada. When she was hanging clothing on the line, she eventually got the attention of the Filipina working for my friend diagonally across the street. The police rescued her and the Palestinian man was given a warning that we don't accept this kind of behaviour in Canada. Little attention was brought to the family. They were more upset than we were and promptly moved to Vancouver. It is not known what happened after this and perhaps the same is still ongoing.

Thank you,
