SINGAPORE - The authorities are investigating a recent incident involving a woman who was seen cleaning the windows of a Loyang Avenue home while standing on a roof.

Photos sent to citizen journalism website Stomp on Wednesday (July 11) show the woman, believed to be a maid, standing on a first-storey roof.

The incident happened at about 7.30pm on Monday in the area of Loyang Villas.

A witness told Stomp that the windows were as tall as the maid cleaning them. The maid also appeared to be positioned precariously on the sloped roof, and was holding some cleaning equipment.

In response to queries, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) said on Friday that it has been alerted to the case and investigations are ongoing.

In May, a 36-year-old woman was charged for allegedly instructing her maid to clean the glass ceiling of her Goldhill Avenue home by standing on it.

Belinda Huber was charged with failing to provide safe working conditions for her domestic worker.
