Robredo urged bilateral agreement to protect OFWs

Robredo said that the call of Duterte for a deployment ban is a “strong response to reports of violence against Filipino workers in the Gulf nation.” “Tingin ko tama iyong ginawa ng ating Pangulo,” she said. “Talagang isang malakas na statement [ito] sa mga nangyayaring karahasan.”

Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday urged both the Philippine and Kuwaiti governments to sign the pending bilateral agreement amid President Rodrigo Duterte’s call for a deployment ban of OFWs to the Gulf state.

In Robredo’s weekly radio show, the vice president expressed that the agreement would protect the overseas Filipino workers (OFW) in Kuwait.  Bisita niya sa naturang radio show si Atty. Hans Leo Cacdac, Administrator from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) na nagbigay liwanag din tungkol sa mga “Balik-Pilipinas, Balik-Hanapbuhay” program para mga OFWs.

Robredo said that the call of Duterte for a deployment ban is a “strong response to reports of violence against Filipino workers in the Gulf nation.”

“Tingin ko tama iyong ginawa ng ating Pangulo,” she said. “Talagang isang malakas na statement [ito] sa mga nangyayaring karahasan.”

Robredo also expressed hope that the visit of Duterte to Kuwait would result to the signing of the agreement.

“Sana iyong kaniyang pagbisita, magbibigay ng pressure sa pamahalaan ng Kuwait na pirmahan na,” Robredo said.

“Kasi kahit ganito iyong nangyayari, ang reality talaga, iyong mga Pilipinong nandoon na hindi naman nagdadaan sa ganitong pagsubok, ayaw ding umuwi kasi siyempre iniisip nila iyong kanilang employment. So kailangang siguraduhin natin na iyong maiiwan talagang protected,” she added.

Earlier, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque confirmed that Kuwait has invited Duterte to visit the Gulf state.

 Duterte was the first one to reveal the trip during his speech in Malacañang.

“Any day now, I will go to Kuwait. The ambassador is here. I’m angry because there were already four Filipinas who were raped,” Duterte said in Bisaya.
