A Sri Lankan housemaid who was sentenced to death in 2006 returned home after bing pardoned.

A 'Gulf News' report quoted the Sri Lankan Embassy statement that said 38-year-old Abdul Kareem Kanzul Maharifa was arrested on April 30, 2006, on charges of causing the death of her sponsor's wife by repeatedly hitting her on the head and face with an ornamental pot.

The Shariah Court issued her capital punishment in 2006.

The Embassy along with Sri Lankan External Affairs Ministry had been closely working on clemency.

She was sent to Sri Lanka on July 31, the embassy said.

Sarath Wijesinghe, Sri Lankan Ambassador to the UAE, expressed his gratitude to the Rulers and the UAE judiciary.

"It is inevitable that these incidents do take place when people work in difficult conditions," the press release said.

Employees face problems mainly due to wrongdoings by unscrupulous agents, who cause rifts between employers, sponsors and  workers, the embassy said.

    It is unfair to blame the agents for these problems, every recruiting agents like to see employees send by them to be in good health/wealth with their sponsor, unfortunately some maids ends up in very inhuman sponsors from there all the all the problems are rising . Our embassies in those countries too very weak in taking action.

    Who are you trying to kid Hussain? Are you an agent too? When was the last time an agent you met gave the full story to a maid who was leaving?
