Alleging they were abused by their employer, who is a Tan Sri, three Indonesian maids fled to safety.

The trio are believed to have run away from a bungalow in Country Heights, Kajang with the help of a man who took them to the Indonesian Embassy.

According to police, the embassy lodged a report on March 22.

The victims, aged between 25-41 years old were working for seven, four years and six months respectively.

“Preliminary investigations showed that they ran away after being unable to put up with the rough treatment by the employer and his Puan  Sri wife.

"All three claimed they were punched and slapped, as well as had their pay and passports withheld,” said police.

The three victims escaped by climbing the fence of their employer's house and were later assisted by an unknown man who brought them to the Indonesian embassy.

“Investigations at the scene led to the seizure of two passports and an i-card belonging to the victims that were held by the suspect’s secretary.

"Medical checks on the victims showed no signs of physical injuries. The same checks also showed no signs of sexual or mental abuse on the victims,” police said.

According to The Star, the victims had been sent to a safe house after an interim protection order was granted by the Magistrate Court.
