Police Blotter: Anti-Witch Unit

“A Saudi man had his Filipina housemaid arrested after suspecting that she is involved in sorcery targeting his family, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

The unnamed man from the western town of Taif told police that he suspected the maid after she started to spend most of her time in her bedroom and staying for long periods of time in the bath room, Sabq Arabic language daily said.

Police raided the maid’s bedroom and found talismans and other magic items while more such items were found inside her underwear at the women’s jail.

“The man and his family complained to the police after suspecting the maid was trying to put them under magic spell.”

The paper said the unidentified maid was handed over to the anti-witchcraft unit at the feared Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.”
