Por said he was given the phone number of the woman's daughter - the maid's employer - who denied abusing the woman and told them to wait for her to return.
They then contacted Tenaganita, an NGO dedicated to protecting migrants from abuse, Por added.
"She claimed that the maid had accidentally spilled the chemical on her legs and arms when pouring this into the drain hole, causing chemical burns, and that despite being provided with medication, she did not stop picking at her wounds, making them worse," said Por.
