Cucumber found inside private part of Filipina killed in Kuwait

Kuwait: A Filipina Overseas Worker (OFW) suffered and died in the hands of her employer. Her gruesome death revealed that a cucumber was inserted in her private part, according to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello said that the 47-year-old Filipina, identified as Constancia Lago Dayag, from Agadanan, Isabela, was rushed to Al Sabah Hospital on Tuesday after suffering various contusions and hematoma. She was later pronounced dead and doctors found a “cucumber” inside her private part.

The Labor Department is now talking to the Kuwaiti government on how another gruesome death happened in the country.

The Filipina was deployed as a household service worker in January 2016 to Kuwait and returned in 2018 as a Balik-Manggagawa on a second contract with her Kuwaiti employer, according to the foreign affairs department.

The Philippine-Kuwait relations took a hit when the news of Pinay OFW Joanna Demafelis triggered public outcry when her body was found in a freeze years after she lost contact with her family.

The two governments then made arrangements to create a Memorandum of Understanding to ensure that Filipino workers’ rights are protected.

Bello has expressed his deep sympathy to the death of the OFW and condemned the gruesome killing.

The Foreign Affairs Department in a statement said it is now coordinating with Kuwaiti authorities to conduct an investigation on the Filipina’s death.

“Embassy Charge d’Affaires Mohd. Noordin Pendosina N. Lomondot also said that the Embassy has also requested Kuwait’s General Forensics and Evidence Department to expedite the release of the forensic report, which is usually processed within four to six weeks.” the DFA said in a statement.
