YouTube video of domestic worker abuse in Lebanon sparks outrage

The recent, disturbing video of an Ethiopian woman who was violently mistreated outside the Ethiopian embassy in Lebanon, appears to have caught the Lebanese media and authorities by surprise.

For many Ethiopians, however, the incident is the latest example of the prevalent culture of violence against female Ethiopian migrant employees in many Middle Eastern countries.

“It is time to end the unchecked exploitation of migrant women in the Middle East,” said Ms. Zewditu Fessehaa,” Chairwoman of the Ethiopian Social Assistance Committee in New York City. ESAC recently hosted a public forum to highlight the plight of Ethiopian female domestic workers in the Middle East. “As the world can see from this video the treatment of domestic workers in that part of the world is inhumane, barbaric, unjust and must be stopped,” Ms. Fessehaa said.

Meanwhile, local media in Lebanon say that the government is calling for an investigation. “The scenes of the Ethiopian domestic worker being beaten outside the Ethiopian consulate were considered as a crime by all those who saw them,” reported the Beirut based broadcaster LBCI. “The Lebanese state mobilized its efforts, especially the cabinet and the Lebanese public opinion that strongly denounced what happened, calling for harsh sanctions against the perpetrator of such acts in the future.”

LBCI reporters identified the abuser seen in the video footage, via his license plate number, as Ali Mahfouz. “Ali tried to justify his act by denying that he beat her; he stressed that the worker tried to commit suicide more than once and that he tried dealing with her humanely, but she refused to go to the airport for deportation,” he told the TV station. Labor Minister Salim Jreissati told LBCI that the Ministry of Labor “decided to take the necessary measures to punish the perpetrator who turned out to be an employee in the domestic workers’ office. Jreissati said that the ministry summoned the domestic workers’ office for an urgent meeting on Monday, adding that a formal complaint will be registered.”

In New York, Ms. Fessehaa said she is urging everyone to speak out on behalf of the workers. “Men or women, it is time to break the silence on this urgent crisis,” she said. “We need to demand that our women are treated with dignity and humanity.” She added: “We need to start thinking about alternative solutions to the larger problem that continues to lure them to unsafe work conditions in foreign lands. This issue must be permanently solved.”

    Not everyone can handle leaving home and family and venturing into the unknown – especially when some aspects of the unknown turn out to be brutal. Sometimes one thinks it better to have starved at home, rather than make low wages hoping to send some home to feed the family. But yes, the problem is in Ethiopia … or anywhere else people come from to try for some elevation of their lives. Not all find it.
    Surely this woman needed a friendly arm around her, and a guide to her future. Doesn’t seem to have been one anywhere.

        u stupid go to see the bedouin authentical arabs there the women are respected The women were 10 time more respected in arab country than in occident But since the kurdish shit hal saud came and wahabisme take power arab civilization became shit (maybe it’s the plot of the turkish)

          Oh, right Leo. Those damn Turks and the ‘Whirling Dervish’ religion … get all tranced up and spun out on the incense. There’s a theory we can work on … AND I have a vision.
          For humanity, how to keep a TOP spinning indefinitely is the biggest problem … most fall over eventually. There’s a lot of friction in the ankles, and keeping them oiled is tricky … but I have noticed that a Bedouin woman applying olive oil from Liban can help keep things moving. This is where I spun out recently on the vision, actually.
          If you build me that ‘Pension’ and stock the place properly, I’ll be happy to work with a variety of women and their oils – ginseng from China, tea-tree from Australia, frankincense and myrrh from India; that sort of thing – and sacrifice myself willingly in the lab with hands-on testing for the greater cause. I’ll call you when I’ve found the way to keep the ankles going – unless I slip away, of course, but that’s not likely for a bit.
          What a business we could have … ‘Authentical Arab Oil’ … ‘Bed ou Inly tested. No animals harmed.’ You can work on the numbers, of course. And we won’t sell it to the Turks at all.

    From all the information I have been gathering through the media about the case of this Ethiopian girl who was being abused and forced into a car by a representative of her employment office, indicate that poverty and desperation forced her  to seek this job when she really didn’t want to be a maid and a servant to anyone.
    The strange aspect of this horrible incident is that the whole video was shot right at the door steps of the Ethiopian embassy,and under the watchful eyes of Ethiopia diplomats.Yet there was no intervention by embassy employees.
    Her employment at different households ended with her being sent back to her employment office,according to office officials.If it is true,as this man claims, that she had attempted to take her own life more than once,and  that she had refused to be deported, it shows that she needed help,and she needed someone to comfort her,and understand what she was going through, instead of some one forcing her into a car after physicality and violently hitting her.

    Desperation, and hopelessness …..
    Maybe I’m expecting too much from Lebanese society.
    Maybe I have been away from Lebanon for too long, that I sound too naive to most Lebanese.
    “If poverty were a man, I would have killed him.”,said Imam Ali.

        leo,  are you sure you meant this reply to me?lol. I never said there was no racism in Lebanon.As a matter of fact, I have been very critical of Lebanese arrogance and racism for years.
        Although I don’t always agree with you,I like you and find you genuine and very funny, but don’t get too comfy ,and don’t mess with me leo.lol

          Fair enough leo. All I wanted you to do is read all the comments I posted about the story, before you take one sentence out of contest. You know I weigh my words carefully,and always treat people with respect.I respect your forthcoming,and we’ll move on.TC

      • Prophettttt

        leo, 
        You’re funny but you don’t get the humor in anything.Where was i menacing?
        Convincing yourself in something, does not win you any argument. You jump into a debate after so many comments and exchanges,and you read a sentence or two,then you swing your tongue in all different directions ,and then you put words in people’s mouth.
        Off all the comments I posted about the video of the Ethiopia women being abused, you came up with a conclusion that I’m defending racism or denying that racism exist in Lebanon?
        I have found you to be  good entertainer, and I STIL think so, but you need to learn to debate .
         My advise to you is that  you should use soft words,and hard but solid arguments.
        Please , look at my profile,and read my earlier comments about this story before you reply,though you don’t have to reply.

      i have read all prophett before to answer But i am sure that not the case of a sucidare girl with depression that’s an ordinary case of racism

      • Prophettttt

        Fine leo, I never said it wasn’t racism either.I said  in my first comment above the, following:
        “If it is true,as this man claims, that she had attempted to take her own life more than once,and  that she had refused to be deported, it shows that she needed help,and she needed someone to comfort her,and understand what she was going through, instead of some one forcing her into a car after physicality and violently hitting her.”
        The point was;Basically, if someone is suicidal,and you treat them like this, it is even worse than just simple racism.
        My main point was that poverty and hopelessness drives these people to take these jobs,and people take advantage of them and abuse them. As I said in another comment, many Lebanese who take these jobs are treated with the same level of abuse and disrespect,and that this is how a corrupt society behaves.A society that has no respect to humans, regardless of race of faith or nationality. I don’t disagree with you that there is racism, and plenty of it, but her case is worse than just racism, it is a total disrespect to humanity. Disrespect to humanity covers racism, in my opinion.Hope you’re satisfied now,lol

        • leobetapar

          ok but don’t blame too much because you have to compare First the lebanese people have been against that and second after all if you look what they do to their maid in the peninsula she was very well treat innit?

    Every society goes through a difficult time. Ethiopia is going through one at the moment.Ethiopia has been under turmoil since Emperor  Haile Selassie was deposed, and the massive exodus that started then hasn’t stopped yet! Leaving the overall treatment of Ethiopian domestic workers in Lebanon or the Middle East aside , I would say the solution should be in Ethiopia. I would focus more on the push factor that made the girl leave her country – where there is respect for her as a human being, as a sister, as a citizen, as a daughter even if she could be poor! Other than that, on a higher level –  I would just recall Bob Marley’s great advice for Africa : AFRICA SHOULD UNITE!

    This time Ethiopians are fighting poverty in any way they can. There is nothing cruel more than poverty I ever know. A very difficult situation. Most citizens see going abroad as their best alternative. That’s why they are living their beloved country for the Arab World. We had been nice guys to the Arabs starting from the era of the Prophet Mohammed. See the Qua-ran. Even more than 100 years ago, before the era of the oil, there had been so many Arab merchants here, but we were nice to them. Still if they come to Ethiopia, they feel they are at their home. According to the Bible, we hope that the time will come when all Ethiopians will flood to their homeland. Shame to those guys who are abusing our girls!

Speaking French does not make you snobby and up market, it makes you educated and bilingual.There are a lot of cases in Australia where Somalis and Ethiopians are convicted for juvenile rape. Would it be fair if I collectively called your whole race as rapists? Of course not! Get off your high horses and smell the coffee.

    What we expect from the barbaric minded Arab at all?? We, of course are poor temporary. But being rich doesn’t mean you are privileged to abuse human beings. I don’t know why those Lebanon always abuse our poor citizens living there just to work for economic benefits? Why? Its for the last 10 years since dozens of copses have started to come back from Beirut. Idiot people…money can’t buy mind, you are the world most barbaric and stupid people.. F** you morons.  one day we will never revenge you, we will teach you how to treat human beings rather. The days are coming soon….We are human beings, we will show u love, never execute you like your 10000 years old animistic Sheria law

    I know there are criminals all over the world. In which country is material.It can be in US,Lebanese,Ethiopia or other country. It is difficult to consider it as the nature of Lebanese’s people as whole. I dis agree with such generalization.By their very nature peoples in all the world have faithful,give respect to humankind and do not commit crime.But, persons with selfish  personality are always living with crime. This is what we we have seen in Lebanese and why the Lebanese government condemn the abuse.

    The most interesting event that make me surprise is not the action of the criminal(actually by the term of justice he is not criminal but for me he is criminal),but the response of our consulte in Lebanese. I afraid for him. He has to pay any scarification for his citizen. By the way what does it mean by Diplomat for him. There is no Diplomat and Country out of its citizen.

    Any ways,thanks for Lebanese government for for its condemnation of the abuse and taking the case to justice. All the other thing is not necessary. I hope the Lebanese government will cooperate with Ethiopian government and continue its struggle  for justice until the final point.

    Being hot by each event doesn’t show the maturity of every person.

      You are right. Injustice is everywhere. And there are a lot of bad employers. It is only with laws that actually address a problem correctly, and the application of them also SEEN to be applied by the ‘system’ of the society, wherein workers will have the confidence to seek justice.
      One voice is usually not enough … this is why unions of unfairly treated workers were formed.

    I feel furious about this thing. This poor girl went to this hell to get a job and help her family.  My heart is crying for  my poor country.  God please have mercy on this poor land and its people.

    Not everyone can handle leaving home and family and venturing into the unknown – especially when some aspects of the unknown turn out to be brutal. Sometimes one thinks it better to have starved at home, rather than make low wages hoping to send some home to feed the family. But yes, the problem is in Ethiopia … or anywhere else people come from to try for some elevation of their lives. Not all find it.
    Surely this woman needed a friendly arm around her, and a guide to her future. Doesn’t seem to have been one anywhere.

     Thats due to the 7th century that female is my possession cuz Allah said its ok syndrome..go figure.. Every single Arab nation is guilty of apartheid in some shape or form, th only Arabs or women with any real rights over there is in Israel

  • leobetapar

    yeap don’t forget everyone see that in Africa How many Lebanese there will heard about it?

  • leobetapar

    u stupid go to see the bedouin authentical arabs there the women are respected The women were 10 time more respected in arab country than in occident But since the kurdish shit hal saud came and wahabisme take power arab civilization became shit (maybe it’s the plot of the turkish)

  • 5thDrawer

    Oh, right Leo. Those damn Turks and the ‘Whirling Dervish’ religion … get all tranced up and spun out on the incense. There’s a theory we can work on … AND I have a vision.
    For humanity, how to keep a TOP spinning indefinitely is the biggest problem … most fall over eventually. There’s a lot of friction in the ankles, and keeping them oiled is tricky … but I have noticed that a Bedouin woman applying olive oil from Liban can help keep things moving. This is where I spun out recently on the vision, actually.
    If you build me that ‘Pension’ and stock the place properly, I’ll be happy to work with a variety of women and their oils – ginseng from China, tea-tree from Australia, frankincense and myrrh from India; that sort of thing – and sacrifice myself willingly in the lab with hands-on testing for the greater cause. I’ll call you when I’ve found the way to keep the ankles going – unless I slip away, of course, but that’s not likely for a bit.
    What a business we could have … ‘Authentical Arab Oil’ … ‘Bed ou Inly tested. No animals harmed.’ You can work on the numbers, of course. And we won’t sell it to the Turks at all.
