Facebook video leads to rescue of abused Pinay in Kuwait

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) has rescued another abused overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Kuwait after a series of videos of her pleading for help went viral on Facebook.

The Filipina named Bretchie Lyn Magsayo showed in the video the bruises and burns which she allegedly sustained from the abused of her police employer.

OWWA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac and Deputy Administrator Arnel Ignacio quickly coordinated with Kuwaiti labor officials after they have found out Magsayo’s situation in the Gulf state.

Magsayo was rescued last Saturday afternoon and was taken to the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait.

“Nandito na po ako sa Philippine Embassy ng Kuwait, maayos na po ako dito,” said the OFW.

Deputy Administrator Arnell Ignacio pointed out that Magsayo had to be rescued cautiously because any fellow Filipino worker who decided to help her escape could have been arrested.

“We have to understand na iba ho ang batas dito. Hindi ho kahit sino ay puwedeng tumakbo at mag-rescue na ‘yun ay maaaresto. Kasi, malamang, ‘yung magre-rescue na ‘yun ay maaresto. Pulis ho ang nagre-rescue dito so we have to coordinate with the authorities,” Ignacio explained.

Ignacio leads the task force sent to the Middle East by the Department of Labor and Employement (DOLE) to assess and check on the situations of Filipino workers after a number of cases of abuse in Kuwait emerged, one of which is that of Joanna Demafelis whose body was found dead inside a freezer.
