At Telegraph UK, "Maid's beheading in Saudi Arabia halts Indonesian domestic worker scheme":
Migrant worker Ruyati binti Sapubi, 54, was executed after she was convicted of murdering her Saudi employer, Khairiya bint Hamid Mijlid, with a meat cleaver.I'd love to hear more of the facts behind this. The woman was "denied" the right to return home to her family. Why? Was she being abused by her boss, serially raped? One doesn't take a meat cleaver to an employer for small slights. Islam is domestically violent, and Saudi Arabia is historically and horrifically wicked to women. Sad.
The maid carried out the killing after she was denied permission to leave the kingdom and return to her family in Indonesia, according to officials in Jakarta.
"The Indonesian government has decided to impose a moratorium on sending workers to Saudi Arabia," labour minister Muhaimin Iskandar was quoted by state news agency Antara as saying.
The report did not provide further details but local media indicated the move was aimed at domestic workers, who make up about 70 per cent of the 1.2 million Indonesian workers in the Gulf state.
The suspension will take effect on August 1 and will remain until the Saudi government agrees to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to protect Indonesian workers' rights, Iskandar said.
