Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar reported today the fall of Ethiopian domestic worker as Attempting suicide or Fall.
The security forces received a tip about the fall of the Ethiopian immigrant from the balcony of the 3rd floor at her employer’s house in Tripoli (Northern Lebanon). She sustained severe injuries and bruises in the head and in the stomach and was transferred to hospital. Her health situation is unstable. The incident happened at around 2 p.m. last Saturday. Al-Akhbar added that police report concluded that it was an attempted suicide, but the text headline was in the form of a question mark: “Fall or attempted suicide of a migrant worker?”.
The full name of this Ethiopian worker did not reported in the news. Abusing domestic workers in gulf countries is not a new thing. Ethiopian domestic workers abused everyday by their employers.
