RIYADH: The autopsy report of a Sri Lankan housemaid who died late last year in the Eastern Province revealed the woman was murdered, according to the Sri Lankan Embassy.

Pospawalli Selladurai, 36, died on Nov. 5, 2010, in mysterious circumstances, and police took her female employer into custody. The authorities were awaiting the forensic report from Riyadh to complete the investigations.

A senior diplomat from the Sri Lankan Embassy told Arab News that his office received on Saturday a copy of the post-mortem report conducted in Riyadh.

The official said the mission has yet to receive the official report, which will be delivered through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“I cannot tell you how she was murdered until we get the detailed report from the ministry,” the diplomat said.

However, he said that the mission was preparing to present the woman's case in the court, which will issue a final verdict in the case.

The repatriation of the body, which has been kept in a morgue in the Eastern Province city of Hofuf, will take place “early next week.”

Selladurai’s sister, Saroja, said on Saturday she was very happy the Saudi government had acted quickly to ascertain the cause of her sister's death.

“My family is thankful to the government and our embassy in Riyadh, which has exerted great effort in my sister's matter to find out the cause of the death,” Saroja said over the phone from Beirut, where she works as a maid.

Selladurai’s husband died four years ago. Her four children are being taken care of by her family back home.

    Inoccent workers are treated like slaves, in a country which speaks of equality among humans. The Arabs criticize the Jews, that they call themselves superior. But it is the Arabs who calls themselves superior by treating the innocent poor workers as inferior by either harming or murdering. This shows arabs as vicious and in human creatures . Dont say all are not the same. The percentage of inhuman activities are more within the Arabs than any other races and citizens. Although Islam is against inferiority and looks upto all humans are children of Allah . This does not come within these so called Arabs. May Allah give them a good heart and mind to these heartless people.

    Suadi is Strict country. The rule is the same with everyone.
    Therefore they will grant the Equal Punishment.
    They fear God.

    According to islam, if a anyone kills another human, its equal to killing of the whole humanity.
    Let it be anyone from any religion. Punishment will be the same and their is no 2 words about it.

    how about 9/11?

    kumar Monday, 31 January 2011 12:21 PM

    Law? What law for these heathens? The Dutch government cut ALL diplomatic ties following the execution of one of their citizens by Iran. The Sri Lankans will, of course continue to feed these M.E nations with our poor desperate women to be raped, tortured and killed.
