93 Applicants Rescued From Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a problem opposed by Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA). In protection with overseas Filipino workers (OFW), the government has a strict law against human trafficking and illegal recruitment.
With human trafficking as a crime against humanity, the Philippines passed R.A. 9208, the Anti-Trafficking in PersonsAct of 2003, a penal law against human trafficking, sex tourism, sex slavery, and child prostitution.
Many aspiring OFWs are often lured to this trade due to very enticing promises of good salary and a chance to work overseas but often victimized by these group people who often take advantage of their situation.

ur fervent warning to all: do not trust anyone you only knew over the internet.  Being compassionate is one of the good traits of the Filipinos especially the overseas Filipino workers (OFW). They could not help but extend help when they know that somebody needed it badly.  The downside of it is that they are being vulnerable to abuse. Just like an OFW who was victimized by a scammer whom he only knew on social media. The suspect asked him to give money over reasons he only made up and ran away with a sum of P4 million.     Ads     Sponsored Links  The suspect was arrested by the operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Anti-Graft Division following the complaints of his OFW victim, Dale (real name withheld) that he made up stories to gain the victim's compassion and extort money from the poor victim.  The suspect, Jason Rabe, was arrested inside a mall.  Dale narrated that he was giving cash to the suspect in multiple occasions since last year.  Rabe told the OFW that he needed money for the hospitalization of his sibling. He also told the OFW that his parents and his other sibling died just recently.  In total, including the money he sent for an alleged business investment, the suspect took P4 million cash from the OFW victim.  With growing suspicion, the OFW finally investigated and found out that there was no business investment and all the stories that the suspect was telling him were all nonexistent and made up by the suspect to extort cash from him.  NBI Anti-Graft Division acting chief Nathaniel Ramos warns the public to be very cautious, observant and vigilant especially on those people whom you only knew online Rabe is now caressing the iron bars in effect of violation to Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 and estafa charges.

A Filipino woman faked her own death and stole her sister’s identity just to apply for a passport. Unfortunately, she is now about to lose her U.S. citizenship. Identity theft is a serious crime.      Ads  Sponsored Links  A 43-year-old Emilita Arindela, of Mount Desert Island, was sentenced to 10 days in jail for making a false statement on her passport application in federal court in Maine. It’s unclear if she will be stripped off of her American citizenship by federal authorities but it is more likely to happen.  Prosecutors say Arindela was already married when she married an American man in 2000. She moved to the U.S. in 2002 and later became a naturalized citizen, using her sister’s name. Arindela left her second husband and married another man in 2007.  Arindela’s lawyer says his client escaped an abusive marriage in the Philippines and has been a obedience to the US laws.

In spite of the rising prices of commodities and services and others due to the high inflation rate, many Filipinos believe that the country is on the right track. Just recently, the new minimum fare is being set to P10 while the minimum wage remains stuck. That is what the latest SWS survey indicates.      Ads      Sponsored Links   The latest survey shows that from 70% in the second quarter of this year, the statistics went up to 75%.  On the other hand, only 22% believed the Philippines is in the wrong path while 3% of the 1,500 respondents did not give an answer during the conducted survey.  Malacañang welcomes this result as a vindication that the administration is doing their job the keep the country on track.  “PRRD emphasized in numerous occasions that as government workers, we are here to serve the people. Our objective as public servants is thus being able to perform our respective duties well,” Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.  “Therefore, we treat the results of this recent survey not as an accolade but as an inspiration for our men and women in the government as they persist in carrying on with their roles in the service,” Panelo added.  According to the presidential spokesperson, the strong public appreciation would further engage the Filipino people in supporting the Duterte administration in building “a nation where all Filipinos can experience comfortable and decent lives under a trustworthy government.” Filed under the category of commodities and services, high inflation rate, Filipinos, minimum fare, minimum wage, SWS survey
