Complain directly to the police?
Actually I send a email to MOM last week.
They say it is a valid reason for filing a case.
However they need a FIN number, address etc (but I dun employ her so I don't know, so far haven't go reply yet)
How about the Indonesia Embassy will it help?

Don’t think the Indonesian Embassy wants to spend time on this.

The right channel is the police. MOM will indeed need a FIN number or WP number to track. Police, on the other hand will be interested to enforce public safety & order. They shld be able to track that hp or setup a lure meeting. So long as u hv that piece of legitimate evidence. Go to the right authority. They’ll coordinate with MOM to deport.

Will publicly shaming the maid be an option

2ndly, I am concern that complaining to the police will led to my husband hating me even more.

It’s your decision. But I find going to every avenues except the police, are all futile. JMO

Hi, we have just reported to the police. They say it is non of their purview. But is MOM purview and affair.

Am disappointed with the response. When will it become their purview?

yes, disappointed.
since it is morally wrong for my husband to do this, the maid is not in the fault.
maybe down on my luck.

No, the moral wrong are these maids ‘selling’ their services! I’m surprised they don’t care abt this issue. Maybe when it becomes “prevalent” affecting more of our men? Gosh!!!! I’ll write in to stomp with the snapshots! Police shld be embarrassed of their ambivalent attitude. Cheez!!!
