So she came up with a scheme to frame her elderly employer, 83-year-old ah ma Mdm Lim Chin Ai, of physical abuse.
In November last year, she took a taxi to the Manpower Ministry and accused Mdm Lim of hitting her on several occasions between April and November 2016.
A police report was maid.
When police questioned her, Susilawai claimed she was slapped by Ah Ma when she was slow to take a glass of water, and that Ah Ma had hit her on the leg with her walking stick.
Police later questioned Ah Ma, who said that at 83-years-old she had difficulty moving around without her walking stick and wouldn’t have been able to attack anybody at all.
Susilawati finally came clean when she was interviewed by a deputy public prosecutor from the AGC.
She admitted that she cooked up the story so she could return to Indonesia.
Susilawati has been jailed for 4 weeks for lying to the MOM and the police.
