Probe af­ter woman seen on roof clean­ing windows

The Straits Times - - HOME -

The au­thor­i­ties are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­cent in­ci­dent in­volv­ing a woman who was seen clean­ing the windows of a Loyang Av­enue home while stand­ing on a roof.

Pho­to­graphs sent to cit­i­zen jour­nal­ism web­site Stomp on Wed­nes­day show the woman, be­lieved to be a maid, stand­ing on a first-storey roof.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened at around 7.30pm on Mon­day in the area of Loyang Vil­las.

A wit­ness told Stomp that the maid was clean­ing windows which were as tall as her.

She also ap­peared to be po­si­tioned pre­car­i­ously on the sloped roof, and was hold­ing some clean­ing equip­ment.

In re­sponse to queries, the Min­istry of Man­power said yes­ter­day that it has been alerted to the case and in­ves­ti­ga­tions are on­go­ing.

In May, a 36-year-old woman was charged with al­legedly in­struct­ing her maid to clean the glass ceil­ing of her Gold­hill Av­enue home by stand­ing on it.

Belinda Hu­ber was charged with fail­ing to pro­vide safe work­ing con­di­tions for her do­mes­tic worker.
