A Filipino domestic helper in Saudi Arabia is appealing for help as she accused her employer of molesting her.
The victim, "Hilda," was able to secretly take video of the incident through her smartphone and send it to her cousin, "Sarah," who showed it to OFW advocate groups.
"Yung una po nasa kusina po siya naghuhugas ng plato, tapos pumunta daw po ang amo niyang lalake. Unang-una daw hinawakan muna daw siya tapos napaalis lang daw ang lalake nang tinawag siya ng asawa tapos nun nya naisipan niya i-set ang celphone niya para makuhanan ng video dahil alam daw po niya na babalik ang lalake dahil lagi raw niyang ginagawa 'yun," Sarah narrated to GMA News.
Sarah said Hilda showed the video to her employer's wife, but the wife got angry and told her to delete the video and even threatened to harm her.
"Nakita na daw ng amo niyang babae ang ginagawa ng amo niyang lalake tapos siya pa daw ang pinagalitan at pinapabura ang video," Sarah said.
"Muntik na daw siyang paluin ng parang latigo daw po tapos tinatakot siya na huwag daw siya magsusumbong kasi pulis daw ang amo niyang lalake. Baka babaligtarin pa raw siya."
Sarah said she last talked to Hilda on October 1.
Sarah has already reached out to various OFW advocate groups as well as to Philippine officials in Saudi Arabia.
Consul General Edgar Badajos said he has already endorsed Hilda's case to Vice Consul Von Ferrera of the Philippine Embassy in Saudi Arabia. —Ronaldo Concha/KBK, GMA News
