An overseas Filipina worker (OFW) in Saudi Arabia almost ended up in jail after allegedly performing witchcraft against her employer.

The employer of the 23-year-old OFW named Gina (real name withheld) complained that the Filipina was engaging in witchcraft activities which is illegal in the county, reported GMA News.

Assistant Labor Attache Germie Daytoc said that an amulet or “anting-anting”, a cross, and a yellow paper with the employer’s name written on it was found in the OFW’s belongings.

“Ito ay isang crime dito sa Saudi Arabia. Although may paniniwala tayo bilang Kristiyano, bawal talaga dito magdala ng items na katulad nito,” Daytoc said.

The Filipina, meanwhile, denied the allegations against her and claimed that she had no bad intentions for bringing the items into the country.

Instead of being sent to jail and the closure of the OFW’s recruitment agency, the Filipina was asked to pay SR50,000 or more than Php500,000 for the case.
