11 ‘missionaries’ stopped at NAIA

2

ALERT immigration officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) thwarted an attempt by a human trafficking syndicate to sneak out from the country 11 undocumented Filipina domestic helpers disguised as religious missionaries. Bureau of Immigration (BI) Associate Commissioner Gilbert Repizo on Sunday said that the women introduced themselves as born-again Christians who were on preaching mission to the Middle East but later admitted that their final destination is Dubai where they have been recruited as domestic helpers. A man who would escort the women in their trip was also offloaded from the flight. Their names were not revealed as the anti-trafficking law prohibits public disclosure of trafficking victims. The suspects were turned over to Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) for further investigation and filing of charges.

  1. Ok lang makapagtrabaho sa ibang bansa as long as documented as a legal OFW..magiging kawawa lang ang mga yan kapag i abuse ng kanilang amo at walang matatakbuhan na makakatulong sa kanila.

  2. Ay naku, dapat mga ganyan ay pinapayagan ng umalis. Sobra naman pa pogi mga taga immigration. Wala sila makuha trabaho dito kaya sa ibang bansa na lang maghanapbuhay. Isa pa, makaka dagdag din sa reserves natin ang ipadadala nilang dollar. Kung meron sila ma offer na alternative trabaho sa mga yan ay pwede nila offload. Isa pa, lahat ng tao ay may karapatan mag byahe so ano ang batayan nila na basta mag offload na subjective lang naman at suspetsa.
