OFWs On Death Row Will Get International Lawyers If DFA Plan Is Approved

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) is seeking to increase retainer agreements with law offices in other countries to help aid Filipinos who are in legal trouble, especially those on death row.  This follows President Rodrigo Duterte’s directive to work double time in assisting Filipinos who are facing death sentences.  There are currently 85 Filipinos on death row in other countries, 25 of whom are in Saudi Arabia. Just last week, a Malaysian court sentenced nine Filipinos to death over the Sabah standoff that killed at least 70 people. This increases the number to 92 OFWs on death row abroad.  In January, OFW Jakatia Pawa was executed by hanging in Kuwait for killing her employer’s daughter. The DFA and the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait only learned about her case the day before her impending execution on Jan. 24.  To avoid future executions of Filipinos abroad, Quezon City representative Winnie Castelo has called for the need to draft a comprehensive legal assistance program. He has requested for the DFA and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) to provide a complete inventory of the OFWs facing jail term and their corresponding court cases in their host country.  With the list of OFWs facing jail terms and their corresponding court cases in their host countries, Castelo said this would enable the House of Representatives to draft a comprehensive legal assistance program to prevent future executions.  The DFA is now reviewing all the death sentences and has instructed the Office of Public Diplomacy to go through the details of the case and prepare to file an appeal, according to Cayetano.  This is welcome news and development. In the past, the government often criticized for acting slowly in cases that involves OFWs on death row. Usually, legal assistance by the Philippine Government is provided at the final stages of conviction, usually resulting in failed appeals and execution.  "The President wants double time and one hundred percent effort," said DFA Secretary Cayetano. "Preemptive or proactive, right from the start (of the case)."he added.  During his initial appointment as DFA Secretary, he said the department would prioritize the welfare, protection, and comfort of overseas Filipino workers. This step, to increase the number of foreign law firms assisting OFWs around the world, is a step in the right direction.
