The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) instructed the honorary consul in the Maldives to coordinate with the authorities there in the investigation of the death of the overseas Filipino (OFW) couple who drowned to their death while on their honeymoon.

Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary Elmer Cato said the honorary consul in the Maldives Abdulla Salih has been instructed to coordinate with the police in the Maldives and to ensure that the belongings of OFWs Leomer and Erika Joyce Lagradilla will be returned to their families.

“We’ll talk to the police. We have honorary consul in the maldives so he has been instructed to look into this,” Cato told reporters.

Cato added that the agency will also contact the employers of the OFWs in Singapore and Saudi for their benefits.

The OFW couple was recently married and flew to Maldives on January 9 for their honeymoon.

The 29-year-old wife and her 30-year-old husband were guests in a resort in Dhiffushi island and were snorkeling when they started drowning.

Both were rescued by resort workers but were pronounced dead upon arrival at a local hospital.
