A Filipina maid faces an investigation in Malaysia after she was accused of torturing a six-month-old baby girl, a Malaysian news site reported Wednesday.
The Star Online cited a report by Chinese-language ChinaPress indicating a police report had been lodged against the helper by the girl’s parents.
Citing the ChinaPress report, The Star Online said the Filipina maid started work just a month ago in Serdang.
It said the baby’s parents discovered bruises on her back after they returned from dinner last May 2. At the time, the baby was left alone with the maid.
A checkup at a hospital the next day showed the baby’s anus was swollen and she was suffering from high fever.
