Abused maid returns home to her family

A WOMAN from Kampot province who claimed her employer physically abused her while she was working as a maid in Malaysia has returned to Cambodia after her sister sought intervention from police and rights groups. Tep Sophy said her half sister, 20-year-old Ly Soben, arrived home safely last Tuesday. But Tep Sophy said she was unhappy that her family dropped their lawsuit against the agency that sent her sister abroad. Kea Sophal, a lawyer for rights group Adhoc, said Ly Soben dropped the charge after the firm paid her US$6,000 in compensation.
