Case of Filipina maid: Rumors spread on social media about the detention of a Filipina maid in Fahad Al-Ahmad Detention Center are not true, reports Al-Anba daily quoting a security source who affirmed the information published in this regard by a lawyer is inaccurate. The source clarified that as soon as the Operations Unit in the Interior Ministry received report about a maid who allegedly stole KD6,000 from her sponsor who works at the ministry, a thorough investigation ensued and the investigator ordered putting the maid under police custody during interrogation. The source disclosed a lawyer from the Philippine Embassy demanded for release of the maid, indicating he will take her to the embassy. The lawyer was informed that his request is illogical because a theft case has been registered against the maid, and then he spread rumors that the maid was assaulted. The securitymen told the lawyer that he has the right to file a complaint, but he refused and threatened to circulate a report about the issue on social media.
