KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 13 (Bernama) -- The government will ensure that appropriate action is taken against the employer who allegedly abused an Indonesian maid resulting in her death, so that justice is served.

While expressing her sadness and sympathies for the victim, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim said the government would not tolerate such inhumane and demeaning conduct.

According to reports, several neighbours alleged that the woman was forced to sleep with a Rottweiler at the car porch for over a month, before she was rescued on Saturday.....
