Merlyn Angel Arellano, from Gonzaga town in Cagayan province, said in the video that she locked herself inside the comfort room after the incident. She added this isn’t the first time her employer tried to make a move on her, reported Rappler.

“Natatakot ako lalo ngayong weekend, umaalis mga anak niya. Kami lang dalawa naiiwan dito. Baka mas malala pa gawin niya sa akin,” Arellano said in a Facebook post on Wednesday, January 23.

The report said that they tried to contact Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III to inform him about the incident but he has yet to reply.

Arellano said she has informed representatives of her agency and members and Philippine Overseas Labor Office who all told her to wait for the government’s actions.

The OFW said that she wants to leave her job in Saudi Arabia and go home to the Philippines.
