MANILA, Philippines — Some Filipinos imprisoned in Siem Reap, Cambodia over legitimacy issues of their employment agency will finally return home, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddy Boy” Locsin Jr. said Saturday.
In a tweet on Friday night, Locsin reported about unidentified Filipinos who went to Siem Reap but got arrested because of problems on a job agency.
“Some Filipinos who went there for a job were arrested because the job agency had lost its license. I want them free and back home. ATN is on it but I want it diplomatic level. The [DFA-Office of Asian and Pacific Affairs] has been ordered to make it so,” Locsin said.
This afternoon, Locsin broke the news that Filipinos are on their way home, saying “it’s what we do best: we bring them back.”
Sought for comment from the Department of Foreign Affairs, the department said the government is still gathering details from “relevant offices.”
