  • 33-year-old Ellis Kurniasih died on March 16th, 2015 five days after being crushed by a 60kg concrete slab at her agency.
  • Conditions at the Sun Light Employment Agency boarding house were said to be “terrible“, according to a Mission for Migrant Workers spokesperson. “Indonesian domestic workers there are said to sleep on the floor with mats and no proper bed. Cooking is done at the rooftop of the said old building. Although there is a lift, they are allegedly made to take the stairs since only tenants and staff are allowed to use the lift.” the spokesperson said.
  • The family are seeking legal advice but Mission for Migrant Workers reports that they are under pressure from the agency and Indonesian authorities to ‘settle’. Donations for the family are therefore welcomed from the public as justice is sought.
