Addis Ababa, September 1 (WIC) - The Ethiopian Government expressed its deep disappointment over Gadhafi family’s act of severely injuring an Ethiopian woman by pouring boiling water.

Ethiopian Foreign Affairs Minister Spokesperson, Ambassador Dina Mufti said the government received information of the injured Ethiopian woman on August 30, 2011 and held discussion with the victim’s family the following day.

“The government of Ethiopia will make every necessary effort to bring the victim from Libya and get her due compensation for the damage,” Dina said.

 Shwygar Mullah was serving as a nanny for Gadhafi’s son Hannibal. She said Aline, wife of Gadhafi's son Hannibal, poured boiling water on her for failing to keep a child quiet.

In an interview with CNN Shwygar described the horror saying: “She took me to a bathroom. She tied my hands behind my back, and tied my feet. She taped my mouth, and she started pouring the boiling water on my head like this," imitating the vessel of scalding hot water being poured over her head.

The victim also explained that she suffered such a harsh treatment for a second time. She also said that she had never received a payment for her service and cannot pay for her treatment.

The spokesperson said the Ethiopian government is gathering all the necessary information relating to the incident. (ERTA)
