The maid, who has had 24 nails inserted into her body by her Saudi employer, will undergo a major three hour operation conducted by a specialist surgeon and two anesthetists tomorrow.

Meanwhile the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment, Kingsley Ranwaka told Daily Mirror online today the bureau has compiled documents including a statement and visuals of the victim to be submitted to the External affairs Ministry and the Saudi Embassy.

“We have compiled documents of the victim and we have translated it into Arabic and we plan to hand it to the ministry and the Saudi embassy tomorrow morning,” he said. 

The Specialist Surgeon of the Andapana Government hospital in Kamuburupitiya, Dr. Kamal Weerathunga said that this is the first time a civilian will undergo a surgical operation of this nature.

While this is the first time a surgical operation of this nature will be attended by Dr. Kamal Weerathunga, this is also the first time such an operation will be conducted at the hospital.

Accordingly, an incision of about 15” will be made in order to remove the nails from the maid. Medical examinations confirm the presence of 24 two and half inched long nails, pins and needles in H.P. Aiyawathie’s body. She was subjected to cruelty and tortorue while she served as a domestic maid in Saudi Arabia for five months. (Daily Mirror online)

    Yes, where are they? Are they only keen in protecting terrorists?

    hey, this is nothing to do with ramadan or religion. this is a barbaric act and who ever did this need to be punished.

    Saradial Thursday, 26 August 2010 03:09 PM

    Yes it should be send to human rights organizations and Saudi authorities, but I can't understand what is the connection between this barbaric action and Ramadan?

    Will our FM make a case out of this tragedy to secure justice for her? Why are we not going after the criminal?

    Edwardo Baltazar Thursday, 26 August 2010 04:28 PM

    We have to take the matter seriously, at least throuhg a strong body like UN.....just simply sending letters through embassy will not work

    banda Thursday, 26 August 2010 04:52 PM

    by all respect we should not stay just protesting this barbaric act, we should take legal actions against the culprit via the embassy in SA.

    he will shame on saudi to hell with their oil and their monarchy

    Sena2 Thursday, 26 August 2010 05:07 PM

    Good suggestion, but the major TV channels being what they are, how many of them will pick up the video tape for telecasting?

    Above he Crowd Thursday, 26 August 2010 05:18 PM

    Saudis are inhuman,Moses Should have given the oranges to Arabs and Oil to the Jews.

    Sena2 Thursday, 26 August 2010 05:21 PM

    They are in business, and they will talk of human rights only when it suits the interests of their masters.

    Silva Friday, 27 August 2010 11:20 AM

    UN is sleeping. So does UK and US. they only support terrorists.

    Silva Friday, 27 August 2010 11:21 AM

    Yes Miliband is the other and they are all asleep.

    While fighting against these inhuman acts let's work towards eliminating poverty.

    All the British Newspapers are carrying this story today. Other countries too will pick it up. Now, the Saudi's cannot do much to hide this atrocity. The French and Australian papers too have this news item & TV (News 24) has picked it up. It will be around the world by this evening. I hope they film the operation and post it on youtube; that would be evidence enough to claim compensation and have the perpetrators punished.

    Ranil Thursday, 26 August 2010 07:20 PM

    Preventing these horrific abuses is more important than pointing fingers!

    gerald hindle Thursday, 26 August 2010 08:37 PM

    Let's see if the Saudi King has got a backbone to punish this idiot! ... Let's see how strong our FM is in this case.

    renal Thursday, 26 August 2010 08:58 PM

    Please, as a nation, it is time to stop people going abroad as servants! Provide more job opportunities in Sri Lanka!

    Chris Thursday, 26 August 2010 02:01 PM

    hope the bastard who inflicted this on this poor lady rots in hell !

    J Thursday, 26 August 2010 02:17 PM

    Where are the so called human rights organizations?

    Selva Friday, 27 August 2010 08:16 PM

    The government should refuse to send maids to Saudi Arabia!

    steve Thursday, 26 August 2010 02:27 PM

    Where is Wimal weerawansa now??
    lets see if the GOSL got the stomach to stand for this poor lady?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 26 August 2010 02:27 PM

    They should also make a video tape of the statement and possibly the operation and send it around to major TV Channels in the world for telecasting during this Ramadan period.
