SINGAPORE - A sales manager wedged a funnel into the mouth of one of her maids and forced a mixture of rice and sugar down her throat after the woman complained about not having enough to eat, a court was told.
Chia Yun Ling then ordered Ms Moe Moe Than to eat her own vomit when the domestic worker threw up. The Myanmar national, 32, complied.
Chia also caned the maid and threatened her by saying that she would hire an assassin to kill her family members in Myanmar.
District Judge Olivia Low convicted Chia, 43, on Monday (March 4) of eight assault charges and one count of using abusive words towards the maid.
The judge also found the mother-of-three guilty of six offences under the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act.
These included forcing the maid to perform her chores clad in only her bra and short pants on one occasion and failing to give her enough food.
