The domestic helper from Myanmar had been working for the family for only a few months when, in an act of frustration, she assaulted her employer’s intellectually disabled daughter.

For her actions, 24-year-old Lal Ven Tluang was sentenced to four months’ jail at the State Courts on Tuesday (19 December) after pleading guilty to one count of voluntarily causing hurt to the 25-year-old victim.

The court heard that on 29 July this year, Lal’s employer Lim Bee Leng found multiple bruises on her daughter’s cheeks, chest, arms, thighs and buttocks. The victim was unable to tell Lim how she had sustained the injuries but appeared to be afraid of Lal.

At the time of the offence, Lal had been working for the family for about three or four months.
