Plaintiff testifies in maid’s death case

Daw Theingi Su, a military officer’s wife who has been accused of killing her housekeeper, Ma Kayinma, appeared at the third hearing of her trial at the Southern District court in Yangon on Wednesday.
        The lawyer for Daw Theingi Su questioned U Aye Thaung, the plaintiff in the case, at Wednesday’s hearing. U Aye Thaung, the 100-household head of Oak Pho village in Twante township, Yangon Region, said that Daw Theingi Su gave K180,000 to her maid, Ma Kayinma, for medical expenses in front of people in the village. Ma Kayinma showed the wounds on her body to the villagers, including one witness, Ma Htay Htay. Ma Kayinma died before U Aye Thaung and other officials could take her to the hospital, he said.
        Daw Theingi Su and her mother said they had sent Ma Kayinma, aged 40, back to her village as she was not healthy. Ma Kayinma had been a maid at the house of the military officer, who is stationed with a regiment based in Hlegu township, Yangon.
        Ma Kayinma told village officials that Daw Theingi Su had accused her of stealing a gold chain and had beaten her with a stone used for grinding thanaka powder.
        A post-mortem had found many wounds on her head and stomach, and a case was opened at Khalout Chike police station under penal code section 302.
        Many people who attended the hearing doubted rumours that there was an attempt made to substitute Daw Theingi Su with somebody else, because there were many more security personnel than usual at her first two hearings.
