Body of OFW returns home with missing internal organs

by | TOP STORIES

Family and relatives of a Kuwait-based overseas Filipino worker (OFW), who was identified as Liezl Trus Hukdong, cry for justice for the gruesome fate she suffered in the Middle East. Her remains returned to the Philippines on January 5, 2018, with missing internal organs.

Her body was brought to a  funeral home where the family found it covered with bruises and sliced from her bottom lip down to her navel.

The family also discovered that her vital organs were gone. Her brain, eyes, tongue, lungs, and kidneys had been harvested; her intestines were the only organ remained.

Grace Ann Hukdong, the niece of the deceased, uploaded a series gruesome photos of her aunt’s corpse on Facebook, January 10, to seek help from the Philippine government.

According to Grace, her family and relatives were told by Liezl’s employer that she died on December 17, 2017, after committing suicide. But doubts arise over the real cause of her death.

It became even more dubious after the documents with misspelt words, no official seal, no doctor’s signature and license number, and no autopsy results arrived.

Liezl flew to Kuwait on December 17, 2016, with relative Jerchell Bracero Jurial, as per Grace. She worked as a domestic helper under the agency named Greatworld International Management Inc. (Zaidamen Enterprises Inc.) in Riggae area.

As per Grace, they were still able to contact Liezl until October last year. But came November, the latter deactivated her Facebook account without informing them. They asked Jurial about Liezl’s whereabouts and even asked for pictures, but the former insisted Liezl was okay.

Grace said the OFW’s family and relatives interrogated Jurial,, but found her stories inconsistent. Hukdong’s family is still searching for truth and justice.
