OWWA, DFA URGED TO PROVIDE THE LIST OF CRIMES COMMITTED BY OFWS IN JAILS ABROAD

"We would like to find out exactly how many OFWs have been convicted or undergoing trial, the nature of their cases, the penalty they are facing, what can be done to help them," Quezon City Representative Winnie Castelo  said. Castelo called for complete inventory of the OFWs facing jail term and their corresponding court cases in their host country from OWWA and DFA so that the House of Representatives can draft a comprehensive legal assistance program to prevent future executions.         On the case of Jakatia Pawa, Castelo claimed the DFA was informed of Pawa's fate only on January 24, a day before her execution, saying the DFA and OWWA would have saved the life of Pawa if they were informed earlier.   "If the DFA and OWWA had been on their toes, the notice would not have come too late," he said.  Castelo said that these two agencies should have a different plan and approach to address various cases OFWs are facing. He also asked OWWA and the DFA to present their ongoing program, if any, that aims to prevent OFWs from being involved on criminal acts or being victimized  by abuse of their employer that may have pushed them to  commit crimes.      The Congressman even said that The two agencies may tell the Congress if they lack or short of funds so that the House can make the appropriation for a legal defense fund for OFWs.
