A household service worker died when she allegedly fell from a building in Abu Dhabi, but her family suspects foul play.

The family of Mary Jean Alberto cries for justice after the undocumented Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) fell to her death from her building’s 13th floor.

Alberto’s body remains at the Sheikh Khalifa Hospital’s morgue since October 2.

The  Philippine Embassy in UAE says that Alberto’s death is still under investigation.

The incident took place at Shams Meera Tower Al Reem in Abu Dhabi.

The family hopes that justice will be served on Alberto’s death. They believe that she was pushed by her employer in Abu Dhabi.

“Nanawagan kami ng impartial investigation para lumitaw ang katotohanan at hindi cover-up na palalabasing suicide,” Mary Jean’s family told ABS-CBN News.

“Panagutin ang among pumatay o sinumang nagkasala, bitayin o ikulong, sagutin ang lahat ng repatriation at burial expenses Ipagtanggol ng gobyernong Duterte ang mga OFWs at tulungan ang pamilya na maayos na maiuwi sa pinakamaagang panahon ang bangkay ni Mary Jean at bigyan ng maayos na libing,” the family added.

Mary Jean has been complaining about her employer’s maltreatment. The OFW had also appealed for help to ger relatives.  The 44 year-old victim has been working in UAE for 3 months. (TN)
