A Sri Lankan housemaid in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to a 12-year jail term and 1200 lashes after she was found guilty of a robbery.

The woman from the Puttalam district had gone for employment in 2006.

Foreign Employment Bureau media spokesman Mangala Randeniya said Foreign Ministry officials of the Consular Division in Saudi Arabia will visit the imprisoned housemaid in jail and get her side of the story to see if there was a possibility of an appeal.
