They killed their domestic housemaid and froze her body in the Freezer

People from around the World leave their hometown and travel to different countries of the world to earn a better living and support their family to drag them out of the poverty life but sometimes they have to face severe hardships.

Similar happened in this case. Joanna Daniela Demafelis left her country and traveled thousands of miles away to Kuwait to earn a good living but recently she was found dead.

This is very saddening to hear and a heartbreaking news for her family who might be waiting for her for long years. Her body was found in a freezer in Kuwait. Interpol came into action and was in search of her employer.

After the investigation, the Interpol officers were able to identify her employers. It was reported that she was an employee of a family. The family consists of a Lebanese man Nader Issam Assaf and his Syrian wife Mona Hassoun.

It was reported that the deceased Demafelis was employed as a domestic worker and arrived Kuwait in 2014 and her body was found in her employer’s home freezer in Kuwait’s Hawally. 

Assaf fled Kuwait in 2016 with his wife and two children and her apartment was locked, the apartment owner recently got a court permission to enter the apartment and check.

This news soon spread everywhere and the officers were in search of the Demafelis employers. They thought that they are living in Lebanon but Kuwait Newspaper Al-Rai rejected the saying and recently reported that they are living in Syria.

A Kuwaiti court sentenced in absentia a Lebanese man and his Syrian wife to death by hanging over the murder of a Filipina maid, a judicial source said.

It was also reported that the worker Demafelis was reported missing 2 days before the family fed Kuwait. After the investigation, the officers and the relatives believe that this crime might be committed by Assaf’s wife who was a strict lady and she totally had a control over her Husband.

Assaf was brought up by her parental aunt in Beirut.  Her aunt told that it is impossible to believe that her nephew could kill anyone. This crime might be committed by his wife she is a strict and edgy lady and his nephew always feared her.

His mother once visited their home and he let her kick out his mother from their Kuwait home. She further said the last time Assaf visited here on his father funeral and left for Kuwait but later they knew that they are in Syria.

Assaf’s aunt said Assaf’s mother once visited her in Syria and when she returned she claimed that she was mentally unstable. I wish that the culprits should be arrested and should be punished according to the Law.

While covering this news, I really have goosebumps. When we bring a housemaid from her home country, a mother leaves her children, a daughter leaves her parents, a wife leaves her husband and a sister leaves her brother.

She sacrifices all that just to comfort you a little bit. If Allah has given you more than her, it is not due to your abilities but Allah’s will. We should always take care of the poor in the society and start it from your own home, your domestic workers.
