DUBAI // An angry housemaid who took revenge against her sponsor’s wife by urinating in a cup of water meant for her has been sentenced to three months in jail by Dubai Court of Misdemeanours.

Indonesian A M, 36, was convicted of endangering the life of the Syrian woman on January 7.

The maid told court that she had been receiving a torrent of verbal abuse.

“Since I arrived, she had been treating me badly and screaming at me for no reason,” A M said.

She said she called her family back home and complained to them and they suggested she urinate in her drinking water.

The Indonesian confessed to prosecutors and said she did so to take revenge — and that she did it three times.

On the third occasion, at about 9.30pm, the wife noticed that her water was not clear and so did not want to drink it. She asked the maid about it but she said she did not know what was in the water so the woman waited for her husband to return home and told him.

“I knew what it was from the smell and she confessed to me when I confronted her,” said Syrian doctor M A, 44.

He said his wife called him at work and told him that something was wrong with the water she asked the maid to get and that she was scared.

When the husband returned home he said he checked his surveillance cameras and saw the maid come out of the toilet then take something out of her pocket and pour it in a cup in the kitchen.

“When I saw that and the fact that she did it for three days in a row, I called police,” said the doctor.

She denied the accusations in court but was convicted and sentenced to three months in jail, to be followed by deportation.
