MANILA, Philippines—At least two “mysterious” deaths of Filipino workers abroad are being reported every month, Filipino migrants rights group Migrante said Saturday.
He said Migrante chapters in the Middle East have been “constantly receiving reports of (overseas Filipino workers) who died under questionable and vague circumstances on an average of two cases every month.”
“The figure is based on the combined reports from our Migrante chapters in the Middle East citing local news reports and from the kin of the OFWs who have sought our assistance,” Monterona said.
That did not include those reported to various Philippine diplomatic posts, he said.
“We are quite certain there were other cases of ‘mysterious’ deaths reported to the (Philippine) embassies and consulates and its satellite offices,” Monterona said.
