Limang OFW sa UAE, himas rehas dahil sa kanilang video na ibinahagi sa social media

The family of five Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the United Arab Emirates appealed for help from the government after they were put behind bars because of a video that they uploaded on the internet.

In the said video, it can be seen that the five OFWs who were supposed to be members of the LGBT community can be seen introducing themselves on the video.

The uploader jokingly said in the video that some of them were showgirls.

“This is showgirl. O see? They have no customer, no show today.” one of the OFW said.

“This is a new girl, fresh from the Philippines, this is one hundred only,” he added.

According to one of the relatives of the OFW, the authorities of UAE thought that the uploader was selling themselves which is against the law of the said country.

Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) Secretary Toots Ople vowed to assist the OFWs.

“May case number na at hihintayin na lang natin yung schedule ng court hearings sa sharjah court. Meron na silang legal retainer na nakuha para irepresent itong karapatan nitong ating limang OFWs sa korte,” Ople said.

Ople warned that OFWs in UAE should be careful about what they post on social media.

“UAE is strictly implementing its cyberlaw and is also very sensitive to actions against their customs and morality. Iba ang kultura nila eh so we have to be very very respectful,” she said.
