No mistreatment: maid

A returned maid yesterday clarified she had not been mistreated by her employer, contrary to complaints filed by her mother with rights group Adhoc.

Phorn Sophea, 20, said her mother had misunderstood her when she called home from Malaysia.

“My employer did not mistreat me or give any drugs to me. It was a kind of stomach medicine,” she said, adding that she had been paid her full salary.

Her mother, Im Meoun, 52, said she would withdraw her complaint.

Soum Chankea, Adhoc provincial coordinator, said its representatives would meet with Phorn Sophea to verify her story.

Phorn Sophea’s employer had previously denied the allegations.
