The Philippines has filed a case against the employer of a Filipino overseas worker killed by a pet lion, it has been reported.
Vice President Jejomar Binay said in comments published by local media that lawyer Raul Dado, Consul General of the Philippine Embassy, has filed a complaint for criminal negligence resulting in homicide against Lourdes Abejuela's employer in Kuwait.
The maid died days after being attacked earlier this month by a lion owned by her employer of 15 years.
She was reportedly doing laundry on the rooftop where the lion is kept. The cage was left unlocked and the lion attacked her.
