Philippines to ask airlines to bring Filipinos home after Kuwait deaths

"But because of our desire to protect you Kuwait in the future, from Iraq, because Iraq was bent on getting you as part of their territory, we, at that time, during the invasion, considering you and the danger of weapons of mass destruction and verily at the behest of the American government, we were deployed in the Middle East using your country and you saw the workers, the doctors, and the nurses, and other medical personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines", he said.

"Although we are understandably saddened because of the impact on our industry sector, we agree with the decision of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to suspend indefinitely the deployment of OFWs to Kuwait and to repatriate OFWs there who are in distress situations and want to return home to be with their families", PHILAAK said. We either create more jobs here or help working-age Filipinos to acquire skills that are in demand overseas, ' he said.

"I'm buying helicopters because I want to finish them off", said Duterte, referring to Muslim and communist rebels along with Islamic militants in the country's volatile south.

President Rodrigo Duterte of Philistines on Friday said that the ban on deployment of Filipino workers to Kuwait will stay and threatened to take "drastic measures" if the abuses continue.

The remains of Dimapilis were believed to have been stored in the freezer for more than a year. "And you seem to be oblivious about it", he continued.

He has repeatedly expressed anger about alleged abuse in Kuwait, where he said low-paid Filipinos were made to endure rape and starvation. The latest data from Philippine Overseas Employment Administration said there were 86,019 Filipinos in the country in 2015.

"Every unlawful physical injury inflicted on an OFW is an affront against us as a sovereign nation", he said.

'Work as welders instead' Instead of working in Kuwait as househelp, Filipinos could find jobs in local construction projects as "welders", Sen.

Villar and Senators Juan Edgardo Angara and Joseph Victor Ejercito backed President Duterte's decision to ban the deployment of Filipino migrant workers to Kuwait due to the rising number of abuse cases. "We are neutral", Duterte said, without making clear if he was referring to Canada or the USA, his country's treaty ally, or both.

"Do not give us back a battered worker or a mutilated corpse".

"The women can also become welders. In fact, the valedictorian of the recent batch is a woman", she said.

Duterte, who has revived ties and sought Chinese investments and infrastructure funding after rising to power in 2016, said Chinese officials have assured him China will no longer undertake constructions in the Spratlys.

It said it is coordinating with the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait regarding the special flight.

Ejercito also urged the Philippine government to review policies concerning the deployment of OFWs since Kuwait "has not yet signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) created to protect Filipino migrant workers" in their country.

The Kuwait government could not immediately be reached for comment.

"I'm putting notice to the world that the Philippine Rise, which we call Benham Rise, is ours ... and the economic zone is ours", Duterte said.

The new Overseas Workers Welfare Administration law or Republic Act 10801 provides financial assistance for OFWs who have lost their jobs or those who have chose to return to the Philippines.
