Shin Min Daily News reported that an Indonesian maid was so upset at being scolded by her employer that she retaliated by mixing her pee with the milk of a toddler she was entrusted with. The employer discovered something fishy at about 12pm on 16 October last year at 5 Pine Close, near Old Airport Road.
The employer (the boy’s mother) noticed that the water in the flask appeared to be yellowish in colour and that it tasted odd. Both her husband and her mother-in-law also drank the water and agreed that it tasted and looked funny. They kept the flask of contaminated water in their room overnight and the next morning the pungent smell was overwhelming. The maid however denied any wrongdoing.
Two days later, the employer found the maid pouring the contents of the flask into the sink and took her to the maid agency, where she eventually admitted to the crime.
The 27-year-old maid admitted to mixing her urine with the drinking water, and of mixing her pee with the milk of the 4-year-old child she was caring for. The investigations revealed that the maid will take the empty milk bottle into the toilet, pee into it and mix in the milk later with it.
The Court heard that the maid was upset that her employer’s mother-in-law had scolded her and wanted to make the family “listen and be obedient to her”. She had only worked for the family five weeks before she engaged in the mischief.
The maid who goes by the name Ela pleaded guilty to one count of mischief for mixing her urine into the boy’s milk and was sentenced to six weeks’ jail.
