Filipina Nurse Sentenced to Life in UAE

Posted by:

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs flock to UAE countries with the aim of having a job with higher salary offer. But sad to say, some OFWs do illegal activities abroad to earn more, forgetting that the family they left behind in the Philippines will suffer in the end.

And just recently, a Filipina nurse was sentenced with life imprisonment in the United Arab Emirates after the court found her guilty in possession of illegal drugs.

The 34-year old Filipina nurse was convicted of life term, denying her appeal, when she was arrested by the police officers.

Pinay nurse J.T. was hiding the illegal drug in her underwear when the police caught her in a buy-bust operation in Dubai.

J. T. confessed that she got the methamphetamine from a person named Louis and sold it to another Filipino, R.J., but denied consuming it.

J.T. and R.J. both pleaded not guilty before the Dubai Court of First Instance last July when they were first arrested for the possession of the banned substance.

Filipinos around the world, especially in those in Middle East countries, are called upon to avoid engaging in illegal acts that will result to possible deportation, imprisonment, or even death in the foreign country.

Pinay DH Complained Harassment by Employer in Saudi

Posted by:

A Pinay domestic helper in Qassim, Saudi Arabia appealed for help from the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) from her employer whom she accused of harassment.

The Filipina DH reported that she suffered ‘unpleasant overtures’ from her Saudi employer who molested her on August 26, 28 and 29. She filed a complaint against her employer at the Philippine Embassy.

The Pinay OFW was brought to the Saudi capital to stay with his employers’ relatives when they left with his family for Dubai.  He also told the driver to bring the Pinay DH to the Philippine Embassy and withdraw the complaint.

According to Arab News, a source at POLO-Riyadh said that the Pinay DH’s case will be endorsed to the Saudi Social Welfare Administration who will contact the employer for her exit visa.

The Pinay DH wanted to transfer to another employer but a legal officer advised her that she would have to return first to the Philippines to process her documents without violating the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s labor laws.

The Filipina OFW also admitted to being illegally deployed to Saudi Arabia, stating that her papers were processed by an agency that no longer exists so she was transferred to another agency.

Arrived last May, the Pinay DH received a monthly salary that is below of what the Philippine and Saudi governments had agreed upon.

The Pinay DH is staying at the Bahay Kalinga under POLO-Riyadh, along with other runaway female OFWs.
