How long is this culture of abuse against domestic workers going to continue? Safa Al-Hashem: Where are you and your outrage against expats when one of the expat community is tortured to death by a Kuwaiti sponsor? Can’t these foreign domestic workers be replaced by Kuwaitis – just as you have suggested that Egyptian plumbers be replaced by Kuwaitis? Perhaps only then will these horrendous acts of cruelty cease.
Alternatively: Death for those who cause death.
