NONTHABURI — An Ethiopian housemaid who was suing the head of the UN World Health Organization (WHO) in Thailand and his wife for beating and enslaving her on Monday settled the lawsuits out of court.

Emebet Mono Bezabh, 25, worked as a housemaid for Yonas Tegegn’s family in an expatriate neighbourhood in Nonthaburi, north of Bangkok, for nearly two years.

She said she was beaten at least three times a week by Mr Tegegn’s wife, only allowed to eat rice, and forced to sleep with the family dog.
