OFW returns to PH after receiving death threats from employer

An overseas Filipino worker from Saudi Arabia was repatriated to the Philippines on Wednesday night after her employer made her work environment hostile for continuously sending her death threats.

The 43-year-old OFW, Reynalyne Constantino, worked as a domestic helper in Jeddah and returned to the country with the help of ACTS-OFW party-list Representative John Bertiz III who led the repatriation, reported GMA News.

Constantino, who hailed from Laguna, started working in Jeddah in December 2018. She only stayed at the country for several weeks since her employer started sending her death threats after getting accused of stealing from the latter’s house.

Bertiz was able to expedite Constantino’s repatriation after contacting her local recruitment agency.

However, Bertiz said that more OFWs experience similar treatment from their employers.

“With over 25 percent of our OFWs in Saudi Arabia alone, nakalulungkot na nangyayari ang mga ganitong sitwasyon sa ating mga kababayan pero mahalaga na matiyak natin ang kanilang seguridad dahil malaki ang utang na loob natin sa ating mga OFW, ‘yan nga ang tinuturing natin na mga bagong bayani,” he said.
