Mauled OFW now home


An overseas Filipino worker, Lovebella Abcede, arrived back in the Philippines after just three weeks in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, her right eye still showing blood clots from beatings she received from her employer.

Abcede said that her boss beat her up when she asked that she be transferred to another employer instead of being sent home, apparently because her work did not satisfy them.

The employer ordered his driver to send Abcede to the airport but she prevailed on him to bring her first to the Philippine Consulate where she filed a complaint.

Labor Attaché Nasser Munder said they will help Abcede seek damages from her employer and the recruitment agency in the Philippines which deployed her.
