At least nine of 26 overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), accused of stealing from the company they worked for, have returned to the country from Saudi Arabia, according to a GMA News report.

Labor Attache Nasser Mustafa of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Riyadh, said the OFWs were able to get the approval from the Saudi Labor Office that they move to the deportation center.

“Masaya kami at may nauna nang siyam na nakauwi kamakailan matapos silang mabilhan ng OWWA ng pamasahe sa eroplano. Habang inaantay pa namin na maisyuhan ng visa ang 13 pang naiwan,” Mustafa said.

One Filipina nurse was not able to make it because of a pending case of alleged “baby switching,” while four OFWs opted to stay to attend court hearings on the complaint they filed against their employer.

Mustafa said the group sought the help of POLO staff on their court case.

“Inaasahan namin na makakauwi na sa lalong madaling panahon ang mga naiiwan pa kaya ‘wag po mag-alala ang kanilang mga mahal sa buhay,” he said.
