OFW beaten up by two Indians now home—Baldoz Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday said the overseas Filipino worker who was beaten by two Indian nationals in Singapore is already back in the Philippines, while the Indians, who also videotaped their abuse of the OFW and uploaded it on Facebook, are now being investigated by Singaporean authorities. “Our POLO in Singapore, in coordination with the Assistance to Nationals (ATN) section of the Philippine Embassy, has assisted OFW Mia Sotan Malo regarding her case. She was provided counseling and was brought to a doctor for a medical check-up before she was repatriated last week,” said Baldoz after she received an update report on the matter from Labor Attache Vicente Cabe. In his report, Labor Attache Cabe said Rose Khoo, OFW Malo’s employer, fulfilled the OFW’s wish to return home and be with her family right after the incident which drew furious reaction from Facebook users. The employer paid for her plane ticket, according to Cabe. He also said the Philippine Embassy’s ATN had brought OFW Malo to the police to personally file cases against her abusers. Cases of voluntary causing hurt, physical abuse, blackmail, and illegal recording and uploading of video on social media against the two Indians are now ongoing. Baldoz directed Labor Attache Cabe to monitor the case and send update reports to the DOLE in Manila. END
