Employer threw caustic soda on domestic worker after she rejected him

A 40-year-old domestic worker from Nepal has reported to Peyia police that her employer, aged 60 burned her with sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) – the main component in drain cleaner – after she refused to follow through with attempts he made to sexually harass her.

Working for him since March 20, 2015, she told authorities that he would periodically harass her.

According to her complaint, on June 14 the man threw sodium hydroxide on her right leg and arm while she was sitting in the garden after she refused to give in to his demands.

Medical examiner Sophoclis Sophocleous confirmed her injuries and said the wound was infected. Police arrested the 60-year-old on Wednesday who is denying the allegations. He is expected to be taken to Paphos district court tomorrow.
