KUWAIT CITY, Feb 6: In a strange incident, a Sri Lankan domestic helper, accompanied by a senior official from her embassy has filed a complaint with the Home Employment Department accusing her employer of not paying her salary for 11 years, reports Al-Anba daily.

The maid said she was given only 10 per cent of her salary and the Kuwaiti sponsor retained 90 percent of her pay.
