Filipino rape case settled, recruiter not yet off the hook
MANILA – A recruitment agency representative who raped a 22-year-old Filipino worker in Jeddah will be paying the victim 50,000 Saudi riyal (Dh48,965) for damages, according to a Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) official.
“The victim is being assisted now by the Assistance to Nationals Section (ANS) of the Philippine Consulate General in Jeddah,” DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III told the Philippine News Agency on Monday.
Bello said, however, that recruitment agencies Iemploy Manpower Services Inc., and its Saudi counterpart Madar AlKharj, will still be held administratively liable despite the settlement of the case.
The rape victim will be repatriated to the Philippines after the case is cleared, Bello said. GAD/Expat Media
