Runaway maids lock up sponsor after pulling knives on her

Runaway maids lock up sponsor after pulling knives on her

By Nasouh Nazzal, Staff Reporter
Published in Gulfnews: March 03, 2009, 23:06

Ras Al Khaimah: Two Filipina maids locked up their sponsor in a bathroom and threatened her with knives as they attempted to get their hands on some money and their passports kept in a safe.

The incident was reported from Al Rams area of the emirate.

The sponsor in question is an Emirati woman. The maids, identified as Z.A.A and B.J.I, both 18 years old, were also accused of using a hammer and other steel objects to pry open the safe. However, the safe, which is secured by a code, survived the battering.


Yousuf Ebrahim, a son of the sponsor, said the two maids had chosen a time when his father ventured out of the house and his mother would be the only member of the family in the house.

The maids reportedly asked their sponsor to take a look at something amiss in the bathroom before pulling knives on her.

Ebrahim said the two suspects then tried to retrieve their passports and the money from the heavy steel safe but it refused to yield. When they lost hope of breaking the safe, they reached for the cupboard and, on forcing it open, found the passports of the Emirati family members.

The maids fled the scene, throwing the passports of the family members on their way out of the house.

The sponsor's cries for help were to no avail until other members of the family got back home unlocked the bathroom, by which time two hours had passed.

The Emirati family lodged a complaint with the police but once the passports of the family members were recovered in the yard and the safe was found intact, the complaint was withdrawn.

The family lodged another complaint with the emirate's Naturalisation and Residency Department about the absconding maids and the way they had manhandled the sponsor.

The two maids later landed up at the Filipino Consulate General which referred them to the RAK Naturalisation and Residency Department, which interrogated them.

Public holiday for UAE private sector changed

By Wafa Issa, Staff Reporter
Published in Gulfnews: March 01, 2009, 12:52

Dubai: Saturday, March 7, corresponding to Rabi Al Awwal 10, 1430, will be a holiday for the private sector in the UAE to mark the birthday of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), according to a circular issued on Sunday by Saqr Gobash, Minister of Labour.

The ministry earlier announced that the holiday for the private sector would be on Monday, March 9. Gobash told Gulf News that the reason behind the change of the private sector holiday was to make it more coherent with the public sector holiday, which falls on March 8.

"We did not want to cause an interruption between the public and private sectors so we decided to change the holiday by connecting the weekend with the holiday," Gobash said.

Asked why the holiday was declared for a Saturday rather than Sunday as many companies in the private sector have weekend offs on Friday and Saturday, Gobash said: "As far as I know, the majority of companies in the private sector have only one day off, which is Friday.

"Giving the holiday on Sunday would have caused another interruption in the holiday." Although the labour law specifies that the Prophet's birthday be observed as an official holiday, it does not specify on which day it should be held, Gobash said.
