2 Recruitment Agencies Suspended re: Fake Certificates

Posted by:

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA had suspended two recruitment agencies for issuing fake competency certificates for household service workers.

Global Recruitment Connections-Ph Corp., and Excel Manpower Corporation was identified by POEA head Hans Leo Cacdac which was ordered preventive suspension. POEA ‘effectively prohibits the recruitment agencies from recruitment and deployment of overseas Filipino workers pending investigation and subsequent filing of appropriate recruitment violation cases against them’.

The two recruitment agencies submitted documents of household service workers, including TESDA-NC2 Certificates to POEA’s Land-based center last month. National Certificate Level 2 or NC2 from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is a requirement for household service workers wanting to work abroad.

Upon submission, the POEA evaluation officer found the NC2 certificates of the OFWs submitted by the two agencies have discrepancies on their security feautures, which the TESDA confirmed being counterfeit. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that there were six fake TESDA-NC2 certificates submitted from Global Recruitment Coonections-Ph Corporation and nine from Excel Manpower Corporation.

Returning Filipino Peacekeepers to be Quarantined

The Department of Foreign Affairs announced that they are planning proper guidelines and process on how to treat Filipino peacekeepers from West African countries scheduled to return to the Philippines by the end of October, which is also the end of their tour of duty.

In a press briefing, DFA spokesman Charles Jose said they might quarantine first the Filipino peacekeepers to guarantee that they don’t have the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) upon their arrival. The peacekeepers might also undergo preliminary examination from where they are before coming back to the Philippines.

These humanitarians will be quarantined for 2 to 21 days after examination upon arriving at the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM). This is the incubation period for the Ebola virus.

Jose said there will be limited contact for the peacekeepers when they arrive to make sure that no one is carrying the virus. The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) also made an assurance that eventhough the Filipino peacekeepers are retracted from the Golan Heights and Liberia, this will not affect the Philippines image with the United Nations. It is said that the Filipino peacekeepers have been serving the Golan heights for more than a decade, and for more than 5 years in Liberia.

Among the West African countries with Ebola virus outbreak, Nigeria has about 7,000 Filipinos. But it has better capabilities among other countries affected by Ebola virus in terms of facilities and protective equipment in containing the virus.

Know more facts about the Ebola virus disease.
