A manhunt is ongoing for the recruiters of the agency accountable for deploying Joana Demafelis to Kuwait, after President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to summon the recruiters.

Philippine National Police chief Dir. Gen. Ronald Dela Rosa said the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) already had a lead on the recruiters of Demafelis.

“The CIDG’s efforts to look for Demafelis’ recruiters are ongoing. They already have a lead,” he said. He added the CIDG was also checking the recruitment agencies in the country to find out which are operating illegally.

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Global E-Human Resources, Incorporated is identified as the agency that sent the 29-year-old overseas Filipino worker (OFW) to Kuwait.

Meanwhile,the family of Demafelis wants the suspects to suffer too just like how they tortured Demafelis, who was found dead inside a freezer in an apartment in Kuwait.

“We loved our sister. We never hurt her. That’s why we want that whatever they had done to her should also be done to them,” Jojit, the brother of the OFW, said in a separate interview with Hans Leo Cacdac, chief of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, on Saturday, February 24.

“We don’t want their money. We want justice for our sister,” he added.

The PNP, NBI, and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) are working closely to bring justice to the family of the ill-fated Demafelis.
