An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) was allegedly raped by her sponsor at his house and threatening her if she refuse.
The case was brought up to the Court of First Instance after the woman reported her 62-year-old sponsor at Al Qusais Police Station last October 4.
The poor Filipina was allegedly raped and assaulted countless times and was threatened for beatings if she resist.
According to the maid, she went to UAE last September 2016, under the sponsorship of the accused.
“He raped and sexually assaulted me on several occasions and each time he would threaten to assault me if I did not do as he pleased,” says the 52-year-old OFW.
Still according to him, the man barged into her room around noon before she came to the police station to file a complaint.
“He forced himself on me after he threatened me as usual. I tried to keep him away but stopped when he threatened me. I felt so scared and did not scream because there was no one but us in the flat,” the woman confessed.
After the incident, she ran away to file a complaint against the abusive employer.
Police authorities immediately responded to her and took a forensic examination that later appeared positive with the raping incident.
The victim told the police that the sexual abuse perpetrated by her sponsor started last March. Bruises were also found all over her body.
Because of fear, she failed to complain of even tell anyone about the abuse she is suffering.
The trial will resume on December 24.
