POEA suspends recruitment agency over the death of Pinay OFW domestic worker in Kuwait


The recruitment agency that deployed Jeanelyn Villavende to work as domestic helper in Kuwait has been suspended, according to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) Undersecretary Bernard Olalia.


Olalia said the recruitment agency was suspended after it failed to provide a report regarding Villavende's situation and grant her request for repatriation.

“Inamin naman nila na hindi sila nakapagbigay ng monitoring report and that’s the reason why there was a disciplinary action imposed upon the agency,” Olalia said.

"Nakipag-ugnayan na po. Actually nakipagpulong pa nga po sa akin kahapon kasi po pinatawag natin matapos ng insidenteng ito. Isa po siyang licensed recruitment agency, pero po noong January 2 sinuspinde ko na ito," Olalia said, reported by Balitanghali Weekend.


Agencies that have approved job orders in other countries could send the affected OFWs there as an alternative, including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, according to Olalia. (Photo DFA)
