The employer already sensed that there was urine mixed into the drink by the smell alone. Although earlier denying it, she confessed to the act after the drink was tested in a laboratory.

Besides firing her, the employer forced her to drink the concoction, supposedly as punishment. Armida had been working at the household for three months.

Labor Attaché Nasser Munder of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) said Armida’s repatriation is being coordinated with her employment agency, the report stated.

Armida said she wants to take care of her kids when she gets back home. Niña V. Guno/JB
