North Lebanon maid was on hunger strike before suicide: ministry

"Labor Minister Sejaan Azzi called for the investigation to continue in the case. He faulted the employers for not acting “humanely,” knowing that she had been on a hunger strike and was in despair. It is unacceptable to detain a maid when she’s a mother without notifying the maid agency or the Labor Ministry so that the necessary measures are taken,” the statement said.
“Considering the incident a suicide is not enough to close the case,” Azzi was quoted as saying in the statement.

Ten days after this statement is a good time to ask Mr. Azzi on what the investigation of his ministry has reached.
