Duterte to personally plead for Kuwait OFWs

President Rodrigo Duterte has declared a total ban on sending Filipino workers to Kuwait amid widespread abuses and deaths.

Just yesterday, the President fumed at the Kuwaiti government over the death of Joanna Daniela Dimapilis, a Filipino domestic helper whose body was found inside a freezer in an apartment which was abandoned for more than a year.

According to Duterte, his plans to visit Kuwait stemmed from his meeting with the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the Philippines Saleh Ahmad Althwaikh.

While saying that he can not divulge what was discussed during their closed-door meeting, Duterte said that he is planning to going to the Gulf State to appeal about the plight of OFWs in Kuwait.

"Do not buy anymore from Canada or from the United States because there is always a condition attached", Duterte told reporters in Davao City on Friday.

He decried the recent abuse and maltreatment against Filipino workers in the gulf state.
