  1. So, they find a poor soul hanging by a cord from a balcony, and the forensic doctor, criminal investigators, and ISF conclude that it was suicide...wow some investigating and forensic analysis there... will they break a sweat and try to find out what drove this poor woman to take her life? simple answer no...

    they will talk with the house "lords" and tell them, "we see these things everyday" and then conclude that it must be these girls that come all the way from the Philippines and elsewhere, leave families and loved ones behind, so they can come clean a house in Lebanon be mistreated while doing so and eventually take their life...they probably came up with a name for the phenomena too 'Suicidal Tourism'...

    the ISF, Forensic Doctors and Investigators possibly feel bothered what a joke...

    Has any house owner been ever held accountable for human rights abuse in these numerous cases that are being investigated?

  2. She should not committed suicide. She should think her family first before doing that.
