Kompas.com/ALWIJuju Juhairiyah shows a photo of her sister Ruri Alfath Mujaida, an Indonesian maid who died of Tuberculosis in Malaysia. The decease was buried in Malaysia as she could not be repatriated due to financial difficulty.

Before she died, she had not received her salary for six months. 

Adi said he managed to contact Ruri before she passed on. At the time, as she was sick and was looked after by a foreigner, he added.

“I am not sure whether the foreigner was her acquaintance or partner. When she was sick, she was being helped by a foreign citizen,” Adi said in a telephone interview.
