Singapore woman jailed for torturing domestic worker ‘due to her obsession with cleanliness’

A Singaporean woman has been handed a 15-month jail term for abusing her Indonesian domestic help for over eight months, beating her and in one case making her hit herself in the mouth with a meat pounder.

Mun Sau Yeng, 41, pleaded guilty to voluntarily hurting the worker during the course of her one year of employment.

According to Today Online, the Indonesian domestic help started working with Mun from 2018 and was abused several times over a range of petty issues related to the employer’s demands for “excessive cleaning”.

Mun’s defence lawyer told the court that her client suffered depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) at the time and asked the court to reduce her jail term to one year.

Detailing her abuse, the Indonesian woman told the court that the woman hit her with the floor nozzle of a vacuum cleaner and punched her head, just two months into the job.
