Pangasinan 3rd District Representative Baby Arenas urged the Duterte administration to prohibit Filipinos from working in Kuwait.
The Pangasinan politiko made the statement after a Filipina was found dead on May 14.
According to the autopsy report, Constancia Dayag’s body suffered various contusions and hematoma.
She was also sexually violated.
“I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the unabated series of barbaric abuses and senseless killings of our Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Kuwait, which we have silently, cowardly and, unconscionably taken for granted for more than two decades, leading us today, to one more brutal and meaningless death, that of Constancia Layug Dayag,” Arenas said.
“The past years taught us the unimpeachable lesson that every OFW deployed in Kuwait, faces an uncertain future because the laws of and the culture in Kuwait does not provide, nor accept the need for, enough protection for our household service workers,” she added.
