Housemaid Runs Away after Employer Allegedly Tells Her to Lie in Court, Gets Accused of Taking Gadgets

When her employer allegedly asked her to tell a lie in court, a housemaid ran away; but she’s now getting accused of taking gadgets when she left. This led her to seek help from Raffy Tulfo.

Elena Astano, a 31-year-old house helper in Talipapa, Quezon City, went to TV5 after her employer, Joan Ado-Chua, a 39-year-old businesswoman in Quezon City, asked her to accompany her in court. The employer reportedly had a case with the DSWD following her alleged bad treatment of her adopted daughter, 6-year-old Kayla.

According to Elena, the child’s teachers saw her bruises in school; thus, she was called to explain about it. When she told them the truth, the school reported the matter to the DSWD; especially because the child is afraid of her mother.

But the employer wanted the child back and was likely afraid to face the charges against her; thus, she reportedly told Elena to lie in court and claim that the child had fallen at home. This would, supposedly, explain the bruises the child had in her body; however, Elena shared that she took pity on the kid.

While it might be possible that she won’t see the child again, Elena thinks it is better for the kid to be out of her adoptive mother’s hands. Thus, she refused to lie in court to save her employer. Instead, she chose to save the child from her adoptive mother by running away.

But Joan reportedly sent her messages, accusing her of taking gadgets from the house. She was told that a case had been filed in court against her and that the cops are going to pick her up soon. Scared, she sought help from Tulfo.

Brgy. Chairman Jose Maria Rodriguez said that there’s no case filed at the barangay against Elena, leading Tulfo to assume that Joan was merely making stories to push the housemaid to help her out in court by lying.

Netizens couldn’t help but cry with the housemaid as she calls on Kayla to remember her when the girl grows up. She even offered to adopt the girl if the child wants to go with her… It’s so heartbreaking.
