2 Pinays in Dubai rescued from human traffickers

Two Filipina workers were rescued by authorities in Dubai after they were victimized by human traffickers facilitating illegal deployment to Iraq, according to the Philippine Embassy in Baghdad.

In a report by Mao Dela Cruz in Dobol B sa News TV on Monday, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) warned overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) against Dubai-based recruitment networks offering household service job openings in the United Arab Emirates and Iraq.

The DFA also reminded the public that deployment ban in Iraq remains in effect.

It advised the OFWs to consult the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration before accepting job offers from recruiters abroad. —Dona Magsino/KBK, GMA News
