HOLDING OF APPEALS COURT:
APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:Hana al Jader, the wife of a Saudi prince, who had lived in Massachusetts for several years, brought two women from Indonesia to work as domestic servants for her. To obtain visas for them, she provided to the U.S. embassy in Saudi Arabia a copy of an employment contract stating that the women would be paid $1500 per month and would work no more than 8 hours per day. When they arrived, she confiscated their passports and led them to believe they would be harmed if they did not work for her. They often worked much longer than 8 hours, and al Jader paid them only $300 per month. Her attorney successfully argued that she should not face prison time she had several children and her husband was severely disabled and unable to care for them himself. She was also ordered deported after the completion of her sentence.
