A view was supported by Tatang B Razak, Head of the Task Force for the Protection and Service of Indonesian citizens at the Indonesian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, who said "her whole body was swollen . . . it's very clear that it's because of torture." In 2004 Indonesian's and Malaysian's alike were outraged and repulsed when a 19-year-old Indonesian domestic worker, Nirmala Bonat from Kupang in West Timor, was found by a security guard at Villa Putra Apartments in Jalan Tun Ismail, an upscale condominium complex, crying, severely bruised and bleeding from the head and mouth. Ms Bonat said that she was abused for the first time when she accidentally broke a mug while washing it, and for the previous five months, her employer'Äôs wife would abuse her everyday with a hot iron, pouring hot water on her, and using other objects to hit her. Photo's of the woman's burned and scalded body that appeared in the media created such an outcry due to their horrific nature that the Malaysian government was forced into issuing a public apology over the incident, expressing disgust and shame.

Photo courtesy AP The wife of Ms Bonat's employer, 35-year-old mother of four, Yim Pek Ha, was accused of poured boiling water on her, beating her, and pressing a hot iron on her breasts and back as punishment for mistakes in ironing clothes. Following her rescue she was treated for second and third-degree burns. As is typical in such cases in Malaysia, a day after the arrest of his wife, Ms Bonat's employer filed a complaint against the maid, saying that the wounds on her body were self-inflicted and accused her of stealing RM10, 000 ($US2,870.00) from his home. While Yim is free to continue her life unimpeded, released on RM85,000 ($US24,300) bail, due to immigration rules Ms Bonat is confined to a shelter at the Indonesian embassy.

KUALA LUMPUR: The former employer of abused Indonesian maid Nirmala Bonat has failed to strike out her lawsuit filed against him and his wife for damages.
In his affidavit to support his application, Hii said that Nirmala had admitted that he never caused any injury to her adding that her action was an attempt to extort money from him. However, Nirmala, from Kota Kupang, in her affidavit, said Hii had full knowledge of her injuries by his wife. Nirmala said that Hii had signed the agreement over her appointment as a maid and had failed to take care of her safety. Nirmala said that Hii have not provided proper medical care for her injuries. According to Nirmala's lawyer Kavimani Muthayam yesterday, the lawsuit may now go for mediation process. "I am waiting for confirmation from the Indonesian Embassy on when Bonat can be present in court for the mediation process," she said. In January 2010, Nirmala sued her former employer for damages, claiming she suffered pain, humiliation and physical and mental anguish while working for the former boutique manager. Nirmala, 28, is seeking RM28,545 over the loss of income, expenditures amounting to RM10,616 and other relief deemed fit by the court.
