    Maid killed herself after failing English language test
    Coroner's inquiry learns Indonesian upset at failing test three times

    Published on Feb 9, 2012



    Ms Sulastri was found hanging in the shower at a boarding house in May last year.

    By Khushwant Singh

    When a young Indonesian maid was found hanging last year, it threw the spotlight on the issue of English language entry tests.

    Ms Sulastri, 26, had failed three times, meaning she faced being sent home with substantial debts.

    Following her death last year, the Government announced plans to drop the test for new maids and replace it with a settling-in programme.

    On Wednesday, a coroner found that Ms Sulastri meant to kill herself.

    Read the full story in Thursday's edition of The Straits Times.
