A Filipino was ordered to return to the Philippines after he was caught accommodating his girlfriend into their headquarters in Saudi.
According to reports, the Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) brought his girlfriend to their headquarters in Jeddah. He made her use the company’s uniform to keep others from noticing her. The woman then sneaked into the headquarters.
However, their almost-perfect plan got busted when a co-worker, a foreign national, saw the woman while inside the bathroom. He reported it and the management acted according to the Saudi law.
The man was ordered to be dismissed from work and repatriated back to the Philippines. The decision prompted the OFW to seek the help of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) but the welfare in-charge thinks that his company was actually lenient with their decision.
According to the welfare officer James Mendiola, the OFW is still lucky that his employer didn’t report him to the police.
“Ang ginawa ni kabayan ay immorality at maari syang makulong nang hindi bababa ng isang taon at possible pa syang mapalo buti na lang at mabait pa rin ang kanyang kumpanya at pinakawalan na lang ang babae at pinauwi na lang ng Pilipinas ang nobyo nito,“ says Mendiola.
