S'porean Couple On Trial For Starving Domestic Helper

A couple in Singapore is on trial for allegedly starving their Filipina domestic helper Thelma Oyasan Gawidan, feeding her just instant noodles twice a day for over a year.

I read with shock that such a case had happened in Singapore.  As with all maid abuse cases, I find it hard to understand why  there is such a blatant disregard for a fellow human being. If the couple can afford to live in a condominium and hire a maid, they don't have money to provide their maid three proper meals a day?

I think a fine will not suffice for this rich couple.  I propose to send them to jail for 6 months and feed them with maggie noodles and bread 2 times a day so that they can understand what their maid went through.
