Saudi executes Indonesia maid who killed ‘abusive’ employer in self-defence

01 Novembre, 2018, 20:25 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

In a press conference, Indonesia's Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said she had lodged an official complaint about Ms Tursilawati's execution with Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Indonesia.

Speaking to Wartakota Live, the charity's executive director in Indonesia, Usman Hamid said, "For the umpteenth time Saudi Arabia has injured the diplomatic ethics of the two countries which should put forward the respect for human rights".

Tursilawati was charged with premeditated murder after she beat her employer's father to death with a stick in 2010, the Jakarta Post reports.

President Joko Widodo said he called Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, to lodge a protest and demand to know why Indonesia had not been informed about the execution of the woman, Tuti Tursilawati.

Indonesia has protested to Saudi Arabia over the execution of an Indonesian maid, convicted of murdering her employer who a workers' rights group said was trying to rape her at the time.

After Tursilawati's execution, the executive director at Indonesia's Migrant Care advocacy group, an NGO advocating for the rights of Indonesian workers overseas, condemned the execution and urged the government to take serious diplomatic steps including cancelling the agreement.

During the meeting, Mr Marsudi emphasised the importance of having a mandatory consular notification before carrying out death penalties.

Jokowi said the government had done everything to prevent the execution, but quickly added that the case was under Saudi jurisdiction.

The move comes amid the backlash already faced by Saudi Arabia over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Saudi Arabia remains the world's biggest destination for Indonesian maids after the government lifted an earlier ban on domestic workers going to the Middle East over reports of torture and abuse.

'It turned out that Indonesia's request [to protect the rights of migrant workers] was ignored by executing Tuti'.

An Indonesian migrant worker, Muhammad Zaini Misrin, was executed in March this year for killing his employer, and two Indonesian female domestic workers, Siti Zaenab and Karni, were beheaded in April 2015.
