Repatriation of Filipino workers from Kuwait
« on: January 11, 2020, 01:21:51 PM »
By PNA MANILA -- President Rodrigo R. Duterte does not plan to order the repatriation of Filipino workers from Kuwait, despite the killing of Filipino domestic worker Jeanelyn Padernal Villavende.
In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN aired on Friday night, the President said he has no plan to pull out Filipinos working in the Gulf state because he was satisfied with the Kuwaiti government's swift response to Villavende's case.
For Duterte, Kuwait is exhausting all efforts in serving justice for Villavende who was killed by her employer's wife.
"You know, the situation is quite different. We do not see apathy there and the police authorities of Kuwait acted swiftly. And they have arrested the spouses," he said. "There were arrests made and there's an investigation going on. And apparently, justice is being done. I'm not really keen on moving people out.”
Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo earlier said Duterte was "outraged" by Villavende's death.
Last week, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III announced that the Kuwaiti employers of Villavende have already been arrested and would soon be charged.
The labor department has imposed a partial deployment ban on first-time household workers to the Gulf state following Villavende's death.
