Kuwait declares PH envoy persona non-grata

The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry notified Philippine Ambassador Renato Villa that he is persona non-grata in the country asking him to return home in a week.

The Ministry said its action against the top Filipino envoy was in retaliation for undiplomatic acts by Philippine embassy staff, encouraging Filipino domestic workers to flee employers’ households.

The Ministry, in an official statement, renewed its utter rejection and condemnation of the Philippine embassy “flagrant and grave breach of rules and regulations that govern diplomatic action, where staff helped Filipina house helpers run away.”

The Ministry termed such illegal acts as blatant violation of the State of Kuwait law, international covenants and charters, tantamount to intervention in the state domestic affairs and meddling in jurisdictions of the security apparatuses.

Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano ealier apologized to the Kuwaiti government after a video of a rescue mission of distressed Filipino workers in the Arab country went viral, and said that “the Kuwaiti government has accepted our explanation”.

Cayetano warned the Filipino officials in Kuwait it was a wrong move to rescue Filipino workers without coordination with their Kuwaiti counterparts, and they did so as if it were life-or-death situation.

However, his earlier pronouncement that “there was no threat to have him [Villa expelled” happened otherwise.
