Shocked at maid abuse case, Indonesia demands Saudi Arabia enforce law

The Indonesian government is dispatching a special mission to Saudi Arabia to ensure that a severely abused maid, Sumiati, receives the best treatment and that the law is enforced for her torturers.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Michael Tene said a team of representatives from the Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Ministry, the Manpower and Transmigration Ministry, the Foreign Ministry and the Health Ministry would go to Saudi Arabia.
