Sasaklolohin pa kaya? Qatar court finds Pinay guilty of killing own baby
A Qatari court has found a Filipina domestic helper guilty of killing her newborn baby.
The Doha Criminal Court reached the verdict after the Filipina’s co-worker testified the woman slit the baby’s throat and dumped the body in a nearby trash bin.
“I heard a baby crying in the other room. When I went in I saw some blood on the baby … She pushed me out, locked the door and covered the window with paper but there was a small part uncovered. I saw her beat the baby on her face and attempt to strangle her. When that didn’t work she took out a knife and slit the baby’s throat,” Qatar newspaper Al Raya reported.
For his part, the employer said he was not aware that his helper was pregnant.
A separate report on Gulf News said the court will likely announce the punishment next month.
