No reason why this woman killed her husband. Let's just guess that she probably just couldn't take it anymore. His abusive nature, or unemployment, or his philandering. Something happened that this woman snapped and killed her husband by shooting him - and then set his body on fire to try to hide the evidence. We will never know what it was that happened because she's not talking any more. She was beheaded yesterday. [What's the total so far?] The daughter is in prison; her sentence was 15 years and 2,000 lashes for helping her mother try to burn the man's body.
A housemaid has stabbed "an infant." Sounds worse than it is - which is not to make light of the fact that a child has been stabbed, but a two-year-old is NOT an infant. A two-year-old is a toddler. I'm calling B.S. on this story. Something more happened. The father of the child was stabbed when he tried to help the child. The maid was fresh off the boat and believed the vaccine she received at the hospital during her mandatory medical physical was an attempt by the family to try to harm her. There is more to this than what is being reported.
When you can't get workers from certain countries because word of how abusive employers are and word of how employers don't pay the promised salaries deters others from coming to work, here, what do you do? Simply find another third world country in dire straits and hire from that country. Oh, and for the record, it is never the employer's fault, but always the employee's fault whenever ANY wrongdoing occurs. This makes that pretty clear: "...the increasing trend of workers to try to escape their sponsors" is because of a "lack of deterrent." Of course that only happens when "breaches of contract go unpunished," and there is mention of punishing "both parties," but I think we all know how that works out. Only the employee is actually punished. A recent proposal to reduce the fees incurred by the employer [which in a high percentage of cases is actually paid by the employee by means of salary deduction] is supposed to encourage employers to give their employees incentives to stay with them. Um-hmm. Don't see that being any part of the solution. But, hey. That's just my opinion.
