Indonesian maid Nirmala Bonet, whose horrific abuse sparked national condemnation last month, left hospital in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, facing an uncertain future. The 19-year-old, who suffered terrible scars to her face and body, as well as mental trauma, was taken to the Indonesian embassy, which has a hostel in its grounds for vulnerable nationals. A diplomatic car with the embassy's counsellor for foreign affairs Soepeno Sahid Soepeno, a guard and a private nurse drove Ms Bonet to the embassy in the leafy Tun Razak diplomatic enclave north of the capital. Doctors said Ms Bonet, whose hands remained wrapped in bandages, has to return every other day for a change of dressings. Next week, she will visit a private clinic which has offered her free plastic surgery. She was admitted to the hospital on May 20 after a security guard at the luxury condominium where she worked found her bleeding on the stairs. 'She is healing but still in pain, although not as bad as before,' said Mr Soepeno. 'She is quiet and silent most of the time. She really wants to return home to her village. 'Nirmala can stay at the embassy for as long as is necessary, at least until the case against her former employer is over,' Mr Soepeno said. 'I don't know her future after the trial.' Embassy officials said more than M$50,000 (about HK$102,500) in donations had poured in from donors around the world, including Hong Kong. The embassy has yet to give details of a bank account it is opening on Ms Bonet's behalf. Her employer Yim Pek Ha, a 35-year-old mother of four, has been charged with causing grievous hurt. Her trial starts on July 26.
