LBCI learnt on Wednesday that the Ethiopian
domestic worker, whose controversial video was aired last week on LBCI, committed
suicide on Wednesday.
LBCI aired last week footage showing
an Ethiopian woman being beaten outside the Ethiopian consulate in Lebanon.
The act was considered a gruesome
crime by all those who saw it.
The Lebanese state mobilized its efforts,
especially the cabinet and the Lebanese public opinion that strongly denounced
what happened, calling for harsh sanctions against the perpetrator of such acts
in the future.
Ali Mahfouz, the man seen abusing the
Ethiopian worker in the video footage, was identified by LBCI
through his vehicle plate number. Ali denied that he had beaten the young woman.
