(MENAFN - Arab News) The filipino domestic help who was scalded after having boiling water poured on her by her employer on may 4 is still awaiting the results of the investigation from the philippines embassy according to her relatives.

harrish alagasi posted fresh images of his cousin with a message saying 'these are the latest pictures of my cousin (fahima) for whom we are hoping to get speedy justice."

in a telephone conversation harrish told arab news that he visited fahima on friday and was wondering why he or his cousins had not been given an update on her case.

harrish also told arab news that fahima's employer had been detained and released on bail but he could not confirm the official source of the news having got his information from a philippine media channel.

the department of foreign affairs (dfa) told the media that the victim formally filed charges with saudi authorities with the help of the philippine embassy in riyadh last thursday.

the maid's plight was brought to the media's attention and has evoked strong reactions from readers across the globe.

the philippine overseas employment administration (poea) has issued a preventive suspension against phl and the saudi arabian recruitment agencies in addition to her employer in riyadh.

her parents also traveled all the way from southern pilippines to manila to follow up on the case. sen. cynthia villar offered assistance to the victim's parents via sipag (social institute for poverty alleviation and governance).



villar also called on the dfa to use its legal assistance fund to hire good lawyers to assist the victim in her quest for justice.

in an interview with the radio villar told anchorwoman susan 'toots" ople that the government should not tolerate injustices inflicted on ofws who are considered the country's modern day heroes. 'the government should also look into the bilateral labor agreement signed between the philippines and saudi arabia" said villar.

she pointed out that the labor agreement signed on may 19 2013 between labor secretary rosalinda baldoz and her counterpart in saudi arabia is intended to protect the rights of both employers and domestic workers and regulate the contractual relation between them.

article 4 of the agreement also underlines that the saudi government must ensure that the welfare and rights of domestic workers will be promoted and protected in accordance with the applicable law rules and regulations.

'the philippine government could invoke this bilateral agreement to seek and eventually obtain justice for alagasi" she noted adding that all those responsible for alagasi's harrowing ordeal should be held accountable.
