We have heard, with a great deal of relief, that Joe Semaan has been taken into custody for investigation. Thank you to the brave women who came forward to report the abuse. It’s unlikely, given the infinite constraints of the sponsorship system on domestic workers and the treatment they usually receive at police stations, that any of the survivors, (mostly all workers with papers confiscated by ex employers), will lodge an official complaint, but at least Joe will not offend again and this story will serve as a warning to others. We hope for a serious investigation.
