Even the best employees make mistakes. But no matter how big or small the mistake can be, nobody deserves to be cruelly punished for it. Unfortunately, there are a lot of terrible employers out there, and one Filipina happened to be working for one of them.
Lovely Acosta Baruelo was working for a wealthy family in Riyadh when she left a piece of furniture outside in the sunlight. The family was not happy about it so they tied the woman to a tree as a punishment for her to feel the effects of being out in the sun.
The heat of the sun posed risks of fading the furniture’s color. However, it’s not clear if any damage was actually done or not. Still, this oversight reportedly angered her employers to the point of deciding they needed to punish Lovely.
The Middle Eastern family was so concerned that their piece of furniture might be ruined, so they tied the 26-year-old was to a tree under the blazing sun to teach her a lesson. It appears that they are more worried about the safety of the expensive item than the maid’s health.
Horrified by Lovely’s treatment, a colleague took pictures of her tied by her wrists and legs in the garden. The colleague also said this was the sort of punishment they regularly faced at the hands of their employers.
The Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said they were made aware of the situation and helped Lovely return home to La Union in the Philippines after her abuse.
A spokesman said:
“The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) reports that Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) Lovely Acosta Baruelo from Saudi Arabia arrived in Manila at 8:55 p.m. on 9 May 2019.
The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh reported that the case of OFW Baruelo was referred to them on 9 May, and she was repatriated on the same day. OFW Baruelo was allegedly punished by her employer by being tied to a tree.”
Lovely has now returned to the Philippines and thanked those who helped her. But she also asked for help concerning other Filipino workers left in Saudi Arabia.
“Thank you so much to all those who helped me. I want to ask help for other Filipinos left there. They are the ones who helped me and uploaded my pictures. I am afraid for their safety. I hope they get rescued too.”
Lovely also had something to say to her employer:
“You old man will find your karma, just you wait. Keep deducting our salaries. This is the reason why you have poor health. It’s your karma for all the wrong things you did.”
