An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) was found hanging inside his workplace, just several days after allegedly receiving dæ th thr æts coming from his foreign co-workers. This information was later revealed by the victim’s wife.
According to Gilda Merced Dayanan, wife of the victim, her husband Roger Dayanan received several dæ th thr æts as confirmed by his friend and co-workers.
However, Gilda believes that her husband couldn’t take his own life because they had a video call last time and everything was normal and her husband didn’t act strangely.
“Tinawagan ko yung mobile phone niya (Roger) alas-dose (Wednesday) dahil tuwing alas dose ay magkatawagan kami. Ring lang ng ring ang cellphone nya, hindi nya sinagot,” says Gilda.
“May number ako sa kasama niya na si Donato. Nag-text ako, sabi ko saan ba si Roger, bakit ‘di nya sinagot tawag ko? Nag-text back si Donato at sinabi niyang nagbigti daw si Roger,” Gilda added.
Gilda couldn’t help but think that there was a foul play in the dæth of her husband. Roger allegedly received thræts coming from a Riyad national, according to GMA News.
“Hindi po ako naniniwala na nagpakamatay ang asawa ko, may foul play ‘yan sir. Sabi ng mister ko sa kin ang pangalan na Riyad na nagbanta sa kanya na papatayin sya” says Gilda.
It was in February when Roger revealed that someone is thrætening his life. It is said that Roger discovered an anomaly as well as ill egal activities perpetrated by his co-workers. Since then, he kept on receiving thr æts and his actions were closely monitored by his co-workers.
Vice Consul Lemuel Lopez said that they are taking the matter to the Saudi authorities.
“We are suggesting to the family to have an autopsy conducted kasi ang proseso ng awtopsiya sa Saudi ay hindi automatic most especially sa mga suspicious deaths so we have to ask the ministry of foreign affairs,” says Lopez.
