    0

    MILITANT group Migrante on Thursday criticized the Department of Justice for junking the human trafficking case against the owner of a recruitment agency who defrauded more than 100 people seeking teaching jobs in the United States. Migrante chairperson Gary Martinez said Isidro Rodriguez was arrested and detained at the National Bureau of Investigation jail in December last year but was released on May 8 after some of his victims agreed for settlements. However, Rodriguez has yet to settle more than a hundred victims who paid him $1,000 each as placement fee. Martinez said the DoJ proeecutors could file “attempted human trafficking” against Rodriguez, a new provision in law against trafficking. “This is a labor trafficking case. Re-arrest the suspect and have him pay for his scheme,” said Martinez, adding that Rodriguez has gone missing since his release. In 2003, Roriguez recruited batches of teachers and promised them jobs in the United States (US). But upon reaching US, the teachers found out that no school were ready to employ them. Martinez said the recruitment agency was only suspended.
