Maid falsely claimed employer raped her because she couldn't stand the workload

Why would women lie about rape? Well, as shown below, they'd lie for any number of reasons -- the possible rationales are infinite.

Maid who cried rape jailed

AN INDONESIAN maid who made a false report that her employer had burnt her with a hot object and raped her has been jailed for one month.

Baniyah, 23, was sentenced on Tuesday after pleading guilty to giving false information to the police on Dec 1.

The court heard that she called 999 that day to report that she was raped and that her leg was burnt by her employer.

When the two police officers turned up at the house off Holland Road area, she claimed that her employer had used a hot object to burn her leg before raping her about a week earlier.

When a policeman was recording her statement later, Baniyah owned up, saying she she had neither been raped nor abused by her employer.

She said she made the report because she could not stand the workload at her employer's house.
She made the false report so that she could leave her employer's house.

She could have been jailed for up to one year and/or fined up to $5,000 for giving false information.
