Parents of a Filipino woman who was left for dead have rejected monetary compensation from her killers
The parents of a Filipino woman who was left for dead in a dumpster in Jeddah last week have rejected monetary compensation from her killers, it was reported.
Anwarudin Kuit Emblawa, a municipal councillor who is also the victim’s uncle, said the aggrieved family had rejected the offer because they wanted the culprits to be prosecuted for violating Islamic law, Arab News reported.
Emblawa said that his niece, 44-year-old Rauda Mamison Sabdullah, had been badly beaten and had been hit on the head with a blunt object.
A police report said she had been badly injured and died from her injuries the same day she was found.
Policemen have arrested a Pakistani and Lebanese expat in connection with the murder, the report said.
The victim was first reported missing on April 3.
Investigators had managed to obtain information from the victim before she succumbed to her injuries in hospital, leading them to her attackers.
The victim’s cadaver was released Thursday morning by hospital authorities in Jeddah prior to a decent burial.
Filipino community leaders have cautioned expats, especially women, to remain vigilant in light of the tragedy.
