A Kuwaiti criminal court on Wednesday handed a death verdict by hanging to a Kuwaiti woman who tortured to death Jeanelyn Padernal Villavende, a Filipino domestic worker, due to jealousy.

The Kuwaiti woman’s husband, on the other hand, was sentenced to four years imprisonment for covering up and not reporting the crime.

Philippine embassy lead counsel Sheikha Fawzia Al-Sabah said the court’s ruling was fair and in compliance with the law and Sharia.

Philippine Ambassador to Kuwait Mohd Noordin Pendosina Lomondot thanked Sheikha Fawzia and the Kuwait government for the ruling.

Villavende died on December 28, 2019 at the hands of her employer. Her embalment certificate said she died due to “acute failure of heart and respiration as result by (sic) shock and multiple injuries in the vascular nervous system.”
