A Doha Criminal Court has acquitted a Sri Lankan maid accused of stealing gold jewellery and some cash from her employer.
Local Arabic daily Arrayah reported that the employer accused the maid of stealing QR4,500 from her handbag. She complained that when she searched the room of the maid, she found a bag hidden in the room. Inside the bag, there was QR4,800 and two bottles of expensive perfumes.
Her daughter told her later that the perfumes belonged to her.
However, the employer did not report the maid to the police, but when she went outside the house with her family, the maid ran away after stealing some other pieces of gold jewellery, a branded medal and some cash.
The lawyer of the maid argued that the case against the maid did not have any solid evidences other than the claims of the employer, which were deemed doubtful as she waited six days before she submitted a complaint. Accordingly, the court acquitted the maid.
