I was just too scared to tell him because I don’t want to be whipped again. I accidentally burned the pants while I was ironing them. So, he inspected my cabinet and found the damaged pants inside. There, he also found the money ...When they said that they are calling [a] police, I was terribly scared,” she said.  "I don’t know what to do because I don’t want to be arrested, so I jumped from the sixth floor," she added.     Omar’s recruitment agency told the Philippine Embassy that she would not file a lawsuit against her employers.  “I went to the hospital to check her condition and see how we could be of help whether the agency is helping or not. According to the recruitment agency personnel I spoke with, the young girl will not be filing complaints against her sponsor because she said it was her fault,” an embassy representative said. However, Omar is not pardoned as she will face attempted suicide charges filed by the local police. However, Omar's claim that the recruitment agency provided the fake passport she used to have a job in Kuwait and cheated on her identity and age is so alarming. "The recruitment agency should be suspended and banned, and should be subjected for investigation, at least," says a Filcom leader in Kuwait. Given her age of 17, she is not capable enough to handle such stressful situations and the recruitment  agency who sent her has to be blamed. After all, it is illegal to accept an underage applicant and worst, deploy them abroad using a falsified passport.
