Kuwait: The authorities have arrested the employers of a Filipina maid found dead in a freezer in the Syrian capital Damascus. A Lebanese official informed that the Syrian authorities then surrendered Nader Essam Assaf to Beirut on Friday because of his Lebanese citizenship but his Syrian wife Mona remains in custody in Damascus.
The official revealed, “The couple were arrested in Damascus. They were the subject of an Interpol red notice and the Syrian authorities handed the husband over to Lebanese custody on Friday morning. Syria kept custody of the wife because she is a Syrian national. Lebanon has asked Kuwait to pass on the husband’s police record.”
Earlier this month, the body of the 29 year old Filipina maid was found in a freezer in the abandoned apartment unit of the detained couple. The body had allegedly showed signs of torture. The murder had caused widespread outrage following which the President Rodrigo Duterte was forced to impose a departure ban for Filipinos planning to work in Kuwait.
