Middle East Filipinos

Filipina rape victim in Qatar

Posted by Admin on February 26, 2007

It’s realy hot temperatures makes us crazy here in the Middle East. Temperature as high as 45 degrees centigrade from the months of April to November is normal in Middle East. That’s way it’s not a wonder why middle east people’s image outside the arab world is as crazy as the face and character of Bin Ladin. Below statement of a Kabayan from Qatar hopes to convice you of my accusation.

Read this and weep (from Ellen Tordesillas blog)

Excerpts from the signed affidavit Filipina rape victim in Qatar. We will hide her identity under the name “Clara”.

Sometime in April 2005, my father suffered a second stroke and was unable to work since then. I wanted to be able to work in Oman in order to care and provide for my parents as I did not want them to return to the Philippines. This prompted me to seek for any job placement for Oman.Sometime in May 2005, I read Jinhel International Recruitment Agency’s (hereinafter, “Jinhel”) Manila Bulletin advertisement for job placements in countries in the Middle East. I immediately placed a call in the telephone number contained in the ad.

After one week, I went to Jinhel’s office and paid P3,000.00 for my medical exam.I was assured of a job placement in Qatar so I decided to resign from my work as Guidance Counselor in Systems Plus Computer College in Caloocan City.
I went L-R Medical & X-ray Clinic. I paid P2,730.00. Then Jinhel called in March 2006. I was told to prepare as I was sure to be sent for work in Qatar. I paid Jinhel Five Thousand Pesos (P5,000.00) to Haja Fatima as payment, she said, for her services.

Jinhel and I agreed on the following terms of my employment in Qatar: monthly salary of QD700; work is to take care of a five (5)-year old child; the first two (2) months’ salary will go to Jinhel as its commission.

At the airport, iside the immigration, we were asked to pay One Thousand Five Hundred Pesos each (P1,500.00) each, unreceipted. We were previously advised by Nelia to prepare the said amount.

I arrived in Qatar on June 8, 2006. At the airport, I was met by Faruq, a Pakistani National who introduced himself to be from Al Waleed Agency – Jinhel’s Qatari counterpart agency. Faruq asked me to sign a contract with the following terms: monthly salary of QR600; work is all-around with no day-off.

Mr. Faruq brought me to my employer, Dr. Abdul Aziz Al Jumiah (hereinafter, “Dr. Abdul Aziz”). I came to know that Dr. Abdul Aziz is a Saudi National and a surgeon at the AL Ramelah Hamad Hospital. His wife was then pregnant and they had a five (5)-year old son.

My employers’ house is located inside a gated subdivision. It is a two-storey, six-bedroom house with five comfort rooms and a garden. I worked from 5:00 in the morning until about 1:00 or 2:00 the next morning as I was not allowed to sleep while my employers’ child was up. And since the child was asleep most of the time during the day, he usually went to bed past midnight.

Within a week’s time, Mrs. Abdul Aziz (I only know her as Madam Dina) started to maltreat me. Mrs. Abdul Aziz was very strict and very sensitive to dirt. Whenever she was not satisfied with my cleaning, she would pull my hair and would order to do the cleaning all over again. The house had big windows that I had to climb each time.

One time, I unintentionally overcooked the bread I was cooking. For this, she slapped me.On the second or third week, my ward, Faisal, hit me with the telephone apparatus.
One time, they brought me along to a mall. At the mall, a fellow Filipina saw the “bukol” in my head. She gave me telephone numbers at the Philippine Embassy and OWWA’s, should I decide to run away from my employers.

Sometime in June (after about 2 week-stay in Qatar), I called the Philippine Embassy and I was able to talk to one Mr. Jack. I told him about my situation but, in return, he coldly told me: ”Hindi pa naman grabe ang nangyayari sa yo. Tapusin mo na yang 2 years mo.” He also gave me Overseas Workers Welfare Administration’s (OWWA) telephone number.

In the last week of June, I called OWWA and talked to one Mr. Sam to whom I repeated my story. He told me: “Tumakas ka na kung ayaw mo na. Lumabas ka at sumakay sa taxi.”
On 14 September 2006, I was at the kitchen while Madam Dina was upstairs taking a bath, when Dr. Abdul Aziz arrived from the office. He suddenly embraced me and touched my breasts. I pushed him and told him that I would report to his wife. He just gave me a devil’s grin. When Madam Dina came down, I told her about what her husband did to me. But Madam Dina slapped me and blamed me for what had happened.

On the same day of September 14, 2006, Dr. Abdul Aziz asked for the key in my room. He ordered me not to lock my room from then on. I became so scared that I started to use the table in my room to block the door. I also kept a knife in my room.
On the third week of September, I again called OWWA. I told them about the harassment but I was given the same advice – to run away! I again requested that I be fetched or rescued but I was given the same answer – that OWWA does not rescue workers.At around midnight on 02 November 2006, Madam Dina gave birth. He was brought to the hospital by Dr. Abdul Aziz. At about past 4:00 in the morning of 03 November 2006, I heard Dr. Abdul Aziz’ car arrive. I was then taking a shower. I got out of the bathroom. I just finished putting on my uniform when Dr. Abdul Aziz banged the door in my room. I was so shocked. Then Dr. Abdul Aziz immediately twisted my hands, laid me on the bed and tied my two hands on the bed using some cloth. He forcibly tore my clothes then raped me.

I pleaded and begged him not to do it. It hurt. I felt that his penis was so big and I almost lost consciousness. He did a withdrawal and sprayed his sperms on my chest. After that, he untied me. Then I saw that I was bleeding. I was so weak and almost went blank. I thought of the knife but I could not think or move.After what he did, I even saw him pray the Muslim prayer. Then I heard his car leave. I checked if he left any door unlocked. All doors/gates were locked. I was still bleeding.
At about 7:00 or 8:00 in the morning, I saw the window in my comfort room. I jumped out of that window. Luckily, Lorna was then working in our neighbor’s garden. She told me to look for chairs I can step on. As I was jumping to our neighbor’s garden, Lorna saw that I was bleeding.

Lorna let me out of her employer’s yard through their gate. But there were guards and so Lorna hid me behind a tree. We had to wait until the next prayer time at 11:00 in the morning. When she saw the guards entered their prayer house, Lorna advised me to run.
I hailed the taxi. I saw that it had passengers but I later learned that the taxi driver, a Filipino, saw me bleeding and so he stopped the taxi. “From the taxi, the driver placed call to the Philippine Embassy.

When we arrived at the embassy, there was a party which I later learned was a party for Connie Sison and TJ Manotoc for their Kwentong Disyerto. There were media people at the embassy. The driver called Mr. Sam to inform him that we were already outside the embassy. Mr. Sam got out and even saw the blood on my body. He did not invite us in. He just told the driver to proceed and take me to OWWA. The driver even repeated that I was bleeding but Mr. Sam insisted that I be taken to OWWA.

When we got to OWWA, there was an ongoing ballroom dancing. We were asked who we were looking for. The taxi driver was making a call to Mr. Sam in order to ask who we would look for but he was not yet responding. We waited for two hours.

After two hours (or about 9:00 at night of November 3, 2006), one Sir Levi arrived at the OWWA from the embassy. He led me to a quarter that they call “shelter” inside the OWWA. I saw many (about 30) Filipino women inside the quarter .

On the night of November 3, Connie Sison’s group also proceeded to OWWA from the embassy. Sir Levi told the leader to hide those who needed to be hid including myself because I did not look good and I was hysterical. Out of the 30 plus women, only 15 were presented to Connie Sison’s group. I later learned that they were introduced as Filipinos studying computer inside the OWWA.

I stayed in OWWA the whole day of November 4, 2006. We were fed “lugaw”. No one counseled me. I was not checked up or brought to the hospital.

On the night of November 4, 2006, Ma’am Ferida without first talking to me or asking me, called my employer. At about 8:00 in the morning the following day, my employer came. He was first attended to by Sir Levi. He was asked if I was his employee. They were later joined by Ma’am Ferida. They then invited me to sit down with them inside Ma’am Ferida and Sir Levi’s office. The door of the office was left open.

I was angry at the sight of my employer-rapist. But I could not do anything because Ma’am Ferida and Sir Levi facilitated the negotiation. I was asked not to file charges against my employer. In return, my employer would give me my five (5) months salary, a plane ticket to the Philippines as well as return my personal belongings that I left at their house when I escaped. I was made to write and sign a waiver which I worded as follows: “I will not file charges against my employer, the rape case, although it happened.”

In the morning of November 6, Sir Levi called me and gave me a plane ticket. I asked him about my personal belongings and the agreed 5 months salary that my employer would return. He said my employer only gave the ticket. I insisted, at the very least, on my things, but he said “Mamili ka. Uuwi ka or made-deport ka? Basta’s kailangan ko ng sagot mo hanggang 3:00 dahil alis tayo ng 3:30.” I cried and demanded for my things but he said ”Wala akong magagawa.” I had no choice but to agree.

Sir Levi and I left OWWA for the airport at 3:30 in the afternoon. But before leaving, I got my mobile phone that was earlier confiscated by Ma’am Ferida. I was penniless. I was not even given any money for snacks or any emergency.

At about 6:00 p.m., I boarded the plane for the Philippines. I arrived in the Philippines in November 7, 2006 where I was brought to hospitals by my family.
Not one from OWWA of the Department of Foreign Affairs assisted me in the Philippines.

The above story is not an isolated case. There are thousands and thousands of “Claras” out there being maltreated and dehumanized. And they are helpless because our government cannot protect them.

    If that’s the case, how come that FILIPINOS who stays there in the Middle East refused to help their fellows??? Are they doing their job well?? They should have the initiative to help their fellows, especially in this case! KATAMARAN ba yan? They don’t have patience at all…kawawa naman yung pinay!
    I was terribly shocked with this news!!!

  2. Administrator said

    There are efforts of helping hands badeday, but our government sometimes is not cooperating, they prefer in solving problems through “settlement outside the court”, but for all Kabayans, saludo ako sa kanila, kung kailan nasa ibang bansa saka nagtutulong tulong sana sa Pilipinas mangyari din yan.

    I work for a civic organization fighting for the rights of women. I am in the process of documenting cases of abuse against Filipinas especially OFWs who are currently working or who have worked in the Middle East. I hope you could help me get a first-person account from the victims. Thank you very much and may God protect you always.

    This story really touches me, Im also from Qatar, Madaming kumakalat na ganitong usap usapan sa Filipino community and yet hindi pa din naaaksyunan. Tanong ko lang, para sa mga taga Phil Embassy at OWWA anu ba ang mas mahalaga yang social gatherings nyo? O ang kapakanan ng mga OFW d2 sa Qatar especially ung mga naaabuse na mga DH? Base on this story ms kinakampihan nyo pa ang mga ARABO imbes na kayo ang tumulong sa mga kababayan nting naapi. Anu pang silbe nyo jan? May cases din na kayo mismo ang umaalipusta sa mga kababaihan na pansamatalang nanjan sa ahensya, meron ngang naabuso na ng amo, nabuntis pa ng isa sa mga staff nyo. Like in this case anung klase ng payo ang nabigay nyo? In short, kung di rin kau maaasahan sa oras ng kagipitan wag na kaung mgtrabo jan dahil sa bulsa din nmn ng mga OFW galing ang pinapasweldo sa inyo yet wla kaung silbi. To the Philippine Government bt di kaya unahin munang imbestigahan ang mga kaso ng mga OFW na inaabuso at minaltrato ng employer? Sa mga taga Phil embassy nmn at OWWA d2 sa Qatar, especially dun sa mga personality na nabanggit, mahiya naman kau di kau pinapasahod jan pra tumunganga lang..

    This is so SICK!! I feel so bad for all of the filipinas who have suffered through these hellish nightmares! How cruel and inhumane of those SCUMBAG islamic oppressors! They should be imprisoned on PIG-FARMS, and forced to eat pig tae DAILY!! If you filipinas want work, you are welcome here by many…including myself, as well as my contacts..(usa) There is NO OTHER type of people on earth who work as hard as the phillipinos do!!!!! Great culture, and Family-based lifestyle! Isn’t treating their own women like tae good enough for them? I challenge ANY islamic opressor to try that anywhere near ME…..You will receive a big wake-up call!! you WILL suffer….you can take that one to the bank!! You can wash your own FILTHY NIGHT-SHIRTS- you parasites!!! God Bless filipinas, you will be forever welcomed here!!! Please do not go the the middle east anymore!! There are other places where you can find work….your life is not worth the risks!!! Peace to “almost-all”!!!!

    They always do all the same things. They always concern with there personal and social life where every they go. Ang gusto lagi nila eh party at ikaw sisisihin pag merong nangyari sa ating masama pag nasa ibang bansa tayo (OFW). Samatalang sa atin din naman sila umaasa ng mga lalamunin at ipapabuahy sa family nila.

    Sa mga tao sa Phil. Embassy, these are the people who think only themselves, takot din sila kasi nasa bansa sila ng mga arabo, kung pwede nga lang nila ibenta ang mga Pilipino sa mga arabo para kumita pera, gagawin nila yun, sa loob nga lang ng Office ng phil embassy, pinag kakakitaan pa nila ang mga pinoy na nagpupunta doon, ultimong xerox copying ay mahal sila maningil, dun palang makikita mo na, na hindi sila service oriented people…gusto nila yung mga ballroom dance, concerts, parties, which is kikita sila…. di ko alam kung may magagawa pa tayo para sa kanila, kasi ang gobyerno natin sa pilipinas ay ganun din, saan pa ba nila makukuha yun kundi sa mga mas mataas din sa kanila….
    kung ang pag uusapan naman ay ang mga OFW’s, may kasalanan din naman tayo… marami akong nakikita sa lansangan ng Qatar, mga babaeng OFW, nakikipag relasyon sila sa mga arabo, hindi ko alam kung ang dahilan ay pera or gusto nila maka experience sa ibang lahi, alam naman nilang di sila seseryosohin ng mga yun, hindi naman lahat, meron ding mga arabong mabait na pinakakasalan ang mga pinay, pero mas marami ang mga nagsasamantala lang, hindi ko nga maisip minsan na makakakita ako ng mga pilipina na ang kasama nila sa disco house ay mga indians, egyptians, sri lankans, pakistani, at jordanian…na alam naman nilang mga maniac sa babae at mga walang pinag aralan. minsan nga, tinanong ko yung kasama ko sa trabaho na taga jordan kung bakit gusto nila ng Pinay, sabi nila, kasi daw madaling makuha at madaling dalhin sa kama…. kaya ganun na lang ang tingin ng mga ibang lahi sa mga pilipina, dahil din sa mga kagagawan ng mga iba nating kababayan. Pati yung mga malilinis ay nadadamay…. Ang mga Pinoy naman na kalalakihan dito, ay minsan, sila mismo ang nagbebenta at nagpapakilala sa mga pilipina nating mga kababayan para mapahamak, sa kdahilanang gusto ring kumita ng pera, nagsisilbing mga bugaw din sila.. may mga iba nga dyan ay nagpaparenta pa ng kwarto nila para maging isang parausan ng mga ibang lahi, para bang Motel sa pinas, makikita nyo dun ang mga bayarang Pinay na ang kasama ay indians at arabs…. Pera ba kaya ang dahilan? hindi rin, dahil may kakilala akong isang Qatari national, may girlfriend syang pinay na flight attendant, malaki naman ang mga sweldo nun, pero pumapayag syang gamitin sa kama ng qatari na ito, at nagkwekwento ang qatari na ito na parausan nya lang ang pilipina na ito dahil masikip daw ang ari ng mga pinay di tulad ng mga arabo nilang mga asawa, para daw kasing mga camel na sa laki ang mga ari ng kanilang mga asawa…… may magagawa pa ba tayo sa mga sitwasyon na ito or iisipin na lang natin ang ating mga sarili?

    Mga taga embassy dyan sa Qatar walang mga puso, pagbabayaran nyo yang kapabayaan nyo pagnamatay na kayo at walang awang pagbabaliwala nyo sa mga kababayan nating inaapi na di nyo manlang inaasikaso pagbabayaran nyo yan someday. Walang kuwenta kayo ilang beses na tumawag at nahingi ng tulong tapos dumating na sa point na nirape na tuloy yung Filipina tapos di nyo manlang pinaglaban karapatan kinunsinte nyo pa yung Arabo na rapist. Buhay pa kayo sinusunog na kaluluwa nyo sa impiyerno mga walang takot sa Diyos.

    well, I think that problem is rampant in middle east countries, and our government policy regarding the employment of womens in those countries must be change, or stop deploying DH with those satan followers arab people, I really hate to hear that our Embassy did nothing to that shameful act of repist arab, because in islam those are legal to disrespect, abused and rape non arab women in their belief checked this out: http://www.islam-watch.org , so try to get the name of those lamebrained embassies and their staff and send it to the media, such as television. anyway our country is an allied of those rapist countries, because of their active participation in MILF, MNLF, Abu Sayyaf group who continued to hampered the economic growth of Mindanao province.

    masakit at nakaka awang isipin na totoo ang mga nangyayari na yan sa qatar. i myself could attest to that scenario about the POLO office na yan. honestly, we went there also to file a case against our company for maltreatment of employees by not paying us (employees) for almost 4 months. im here in the Philippines for vacation now. too bad na sariling mga tao natin jan sa POLO at OWWA parepareho, mga walang pakialam sa mga kapwa to think na “PERA NG ISANG GAYA KO ANG NAGPAPASAHOD SA KANILA” mga bwiset sila.

    before umabot sa ganitong sitwasyon ang office namin (contracting/engineering company) for non payment of our salaries for more than 4 months, ako mismo kasama ng 2 officemates ko nagpunta dun sa agency na yan. imagine, after discussing with them our possible complaints that we wanted to lodged against our company, tama bang sabihin samin na, pag isipan daw namin ang gagawin naming hakbang muna, kesyo mahirap, delikado, at baka pag initan kami ng employer namin, kesyo baka daw gipit lang ang office kaya walang ipasahod samin, kesyo baka naudlot lang.. WHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTT..3 months kaming walang sahod nun, gutom ang pamilya namin, me kailangang mag tuition na ina para sa anak sa pinas, me mga sakit na ina kailangang padalhan, tapos pag iisipan pa muna namin.. ano kami dio, CHARITY WORKERS!! kakahiya di ba, eto ang mga asal nila na kapwa pinoy natin!!! di ba!!

    after this inhumane treatment ng office namin na wala nang makain at nanlilimos na lang ang mga officemates ko sa kalsada, ganito sasabihin nila samin.. sobrang disgrace na talaga to. i did work in a law firm in makati and i know how to fight for my right and thats what im practicing in our office now. i know mahirap kumalaban sa mga among arabo, pero sa ganitong pagkakataon walang ibang magtutulungan kundi ang kapwa pinoy mo rin. im glad that a lot of concerned filipino workers there in qatar, church orgs, tfc channel, some people who kept themselves to be anonymous are trying to help my co workers by providing food and provide some money to support the court cases we have now in the labor department. sabi ko nga, i may not be lucky to have landed a good job in qatar but i know in some ways baka me reason kung bakit ako napadpad ng qatar, probably to give support and knowledge to my co-workers which i can use based from the skills and knowledged i’ve learned from the law office i worked with here in manila.

    talagang ako mismo ginisa ko sya about saying na dapat kayo ang tumutulong samin. they thought lahat ng pinoy dun, mag ba bow na lang sa mga sinasabi nila. sabi ko nga, i thought you were posted in that position to be our shoulder to cry on tapos ganito lang kayo dito. i know na mejo nairita sya sakin, but i guess we need to be assertive to fight for what we think is right and i know that I AM BUT JUST RIGHT.. its about time na gisingin sila..

    isa lang gusto kong sabihin, sana SIBAKIN ANG MGA TAONG NILAGAY JAN sa mga pwesto na yan na walang ginawa kundi magpasarap at magpataba ng ma bilbil nila. i even noted the name of that OFFICIAL, kakahiya ka… kababae mong tao dapat samin ka sana kumampi for that matters, bakit takot ba kayo sa mga arabo jan, you’re so funny!! too bad for you! God knows what you are all doing there. sana one time, maranasan nyo rin ang nararanasan ng mga kaawa awang kababayan natin jan sa qatar at sa ibang middle east countries. not all the time, nanjan kayo, MAHIYA NAMAN KAYO DAHIL SA BULSA NAMIN YANG MGA KINAKAIN AT PINAPAKAIN NYO SA PAMILYA NYO..

    sana nakakatulog pa kayo sa gabi while ang ibang kalahi nyo, umiiyak sa gabi sa gutom at takot na nararanasan nila dito sa qatar sa mga hayup na mga arabo na yan!!! sa mga nagbabasa nitong mga blogs, thanks for the prayers you’re offering for all of us (OFWs working abroad) mahirap pero masakit talaga ang mamuhay sa labas ng bansa for the family and i should say totoo talaga ang mga namentiong comments ng mga tao dito regarding mga pinay sa qatar dahil sila mismo nagkakalat dito by enjoying arab guys.

    not only that, just to give those agencies something to do naman para maexercise… pls check out jails at marami ang nakakulong na mga kapwa natin dun for some cases…try nyo magtrabaho naman for a worthy cause. grabe…galaw galaw kayo baka MA STROKE!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…

    PERA(kabuhayan)..PULITIKA..KAPANGYARIHAN..KATANYAGAN..ito “LANG” as in “ONLY” ang ilan sa gusto(ng mas marami)ng taong gobyerno na nasa mataas na katungkulan sa gobyerno ng Pilipinas, minsan nga kahit nasa mababang pwesto pa lang KALA MO KUNG SINO na.

    Tanong: Ano nga ba ang dapat na ambisyon ng mga TAOng yan na naghangad o naghahangad pa lang na mapa-pwesto SA GOBYERNO?

    Sagot: Ayan sa unahan,, may iba pa ba? Bato-bato sa langit tamaan huwag magagalit..

    DAPAT: Tanong pa rin ang sagot,, ALAM NYO BA IBIG SABIHIN NG “PUBLIC SERVICE” DAHIL KUNG HINDE, SA IBA NALANG KAYO MAGTRABAHO AT HUWAG SA GOBYERNO..magpakasira man kayo ay walang madadamay.. DAHIL NAKAKASIRA KAYO SA IMAHE NG GOBYERNO NG PILIPINAS NA BINIGBIGYANG KAPURIHAN NG IBANG MGA DEDICATED WORKERS.. Hindi ko naman sinasabi na magpaka-BaYaNi KAYO,,pero simple lang..JUST DO YOUR JOB AS DESRCIBED IN YOUR POST, or SIMPLY QUIT if DUWAG ang LAHI mo where you came. Marami pa pwede gumawa ng trabaho mo na mas qualified at buo ang loob sa pagganap sa BINABAYARANG mga TUNGKULIN. Mabubuhay ka rin naman sa bansa natin ng tahimik basta masipag ka lang, maduwag ka man, walang umaasa sa’yo kundi sarili mo.

    At sa mga KINAUUKULAN naman, PLEASE lang po, HUWAG kayo mag-appoint o mag hire ng mga hindi alam ang kahulugan ng PUBLIC SERVICE. Kung KAKAMPI lang ang GUSTO nyo(mga politicians o naka pwesto), GUMAWA lang kayo ng TAMA ay KAKAMPI NYO KAMI(Pinoys at mga OFWs) LAHAT..or to the MAX pati buong mundo.

    Naniniwala ako na kahit pa sinong Pinuno ng Bansa, HARI man o Pangulo eh maari nyo kausapin basta nasa tamang proseso at MAGANDA ang LAYUNIN nyo. Kung NADUDUWAG kayo dahil sa PANASARILIng kadahilanan o kahinaan(maiintindihan ko), pero HUMANAP kayo ng may TAMANG TALINO at TAPANG para gawin ang hindi nyo kayang gawin at yun nga, magRESIGN na kayo sa trabahong HINDI nyo pala KAYA. Mas nakakaawa kasi kayo dahil HALOS ISUMPA kayo ng mga taong umaasa sa kakayahan nyo. However naman kung KAPALmuks kayo, maghintay nalng kayo ng KARMA sa kawalang kwenta nyo. At eto pa, ingatan nyo mabuti miyembro ng pamilya nyo dahil baka sa kanila mangyari mga kasong tinatalikuran o binabalewala nyo.

    Hindi ako nagmamagaling, sinasabi ko lang ang totoo. Mayroon din akong sariling kahinaan, kaya nga dun lang ako pumupwesto sa alam kong kaya kong ipaglaban o panindigan…at pag napunta naman ako sa pwestong hindi kaya ng abilidad ko, hindi naman nakakahiya gumawa ng tama, umaalis ako at humahanap ng angkop sa dunong ko.

    Napupuri ko nga mga pinuno ng ibang bansa na KUSANG NAGBIBITIW sa tungkulin dahil MARUNONG MAHIYA O MAY NATITIRA PANG RESPETO SA SARILI.

    sinabi nio pa,even in dubai. pare pareho lang gawain ng POLO alang mgs kwenta

  29. i am not being one sided but i think, what OWWA and Philippine Embassy did was very rude. considering that they are working for the welfare of our fellow Filipinos there. how can they be so mean and do action bout it. and why do they cannot demand the belongings and that 5 months salary to be given to her, while it was what they’ve agreed on. Filipinos are not progressing because, instead of helping others, they are kicking them down.

    so why the goverment cannot do anything for this kind of problem? why they cannot do some reaction to all the workers of OWWA and PHIL.EMBASSY here on Qatar for there bad atittude when they are here on the midle east,the goverment of the philippines i think dose’nt know this kind of situation na ang kapwa filipino mismo ang nagpapahamak sa mga kababayan dito laban sa mga arabo,na it means tayo pang ginagawang aso dito,tayo pang may kasalanan,wala kang malapitan na kababayan mo dito dahil pati buhay nila at kaluluwa ay bayad na nang mga arabong ito.

      Mga Empleyado ng Embassy.

      Kailangan ba nating antayin ang mga ganitong pangyayari bago kayo gagawa ng action. kunsabagay sahod ninyo lang ang mahalaga sa inyo na di ninyo inintindi ang mga nagpapasahod sa inyo. Tama na po ang pakunwari, gawin na ninyo bago may mangyari pang karumal dumal, bigyan naman ninyo ng halaga ang buhay ng bawat manggagawang nagsasakripisyo para sa kabuhayn nila. Sana makonsensya naman kayo at tulongan ninyo ang mga nangangailangan ng tulong.

      Harapin ninyo ang katungkulan ninyo.

    In this case, sa dami ba naman ng tumatakbong Party-list…nasaan na ung Gabriela, etc. At ikaw Clara, dumudugo puso ko sa nangyari sa iyo BUT…have you also gone to those human rights and labor groups na pag national eleksyon parang mga langgam nagtatakbuhan para iboto. Or the MEDIA…sinabi mo na lahat dito why couldn’t have u come to those TV stations and tell everything at ng matauhan din that “SAM”, “SIR LEVI” AT “MAM FERRIDA” na NAGSASAYANG LANG NG BUWIS at naging mga BUWISIT SA LIPUNAN NATIN! Im livid about what happened to you…but please…its only you who can punish those who need to be punished. Stand up Clara! I will pray for you always…

    And to those embassy at owwa pipol…mas sahol pa kayo kay Bin Laden! Buti pa siyang terorista…ginawa para sa pinaglaban nya. Sarap nyong KATAYIN…LALO KANG SAM KA!
