Ethiopian domestic worker raped

A 40-year-old Lebanese man, whose job description entails “disciplining domestic workers” at a recruitment agency, slapped an Ethiopian domestic worker and ordered her to strip. When she refused, he told her she has been accused of thievery and that he must search her. Following the search, he tells the secretary of the agency that “she is clean” only to start beating the domestic worker with his belt. He then rapes her, the sound of her screams reaching the secretary who does nothing to intervene, and threatens her to keep quiet about the incident. Medical reports later evidenced the abuse to her body, including to her genitalia.
