In Lebanon, domestic worker’s last messages show abusive system
The country’s labour minister says an investigation launched after Al Jazeera’s report into circumstances surrounding Faustina Tay’s death.
6 Apr 2020
Faustina Tay sent dozens of chilling voice messages pleading for help. She said her employers in Lebanon were beating her.
“I’m scared they might kill me,” the 23-year-old said.
Her detailed messages have revealed a disturbing reality in Lebanon, where two domestic workers die every week.
In this episode, we hear from Timour Azhari, the Al Jazeera journalist in Beirut, Lebanon, who first reported the story, and Patricia, a caseworker with Canada-based advocacy group, This Is Lebanon.
