A Qatari man is facing charges of raping a Filipina housemaid, when she was 17, on her very first day of employment in his house on August 14, 2005.
The Public Prosecution said the accused, 42, had told the recruitment agency that he wanted the maid to take care of his children. A clerk in a local manpower agency said the accused provided a Philippine visa for the maid within an hour and a half.
"When she went to the house, the maid did not find anyone there except the man, who asked her to clean his room. The accused sexually assaulted the maid even though she put up fierce resistance. He raped her twice within a short time," the charge-sheet said.
Forensic reports said the maid was a virgin before the alleged incident. Traces of her blood were found on the accused’s jeans.
After the incident, the man handed the maid back to the agency saying that she was lazy because of homesickness.
The victim kept silent about the attack for a few days before she told her story to the wife of the clerk.
The clerk called the director of the office, who filed a case with the police.
If convicted, the man faces the death penalty, legal sources said.

Qatarsucks.com comments: This is typical of the Qatari slave owner, superior complex mentality. I'm sure this man thought his actions were completely acceptable since afterall she was his slave, right?
Once they explained to him that other countries will find out about this kind of behavior and that raping is no longer appropriate maybe he got it, maybe. Nevertheless, he will get off easily because, afterall, he is Qatari.
