President Rodrigo Duterte has scored Kuwait over its shabby treatment of overseas Filipino workers, which has even led to the death of some of them.
In a press conference in Davao City Friday (February 9), Duterte showed photos of OFWs who suffered abuse while working in Kuwait.
“Tingnan mo. Parang pinirito, nilitson. Is there something wrong with your culture? Is there something wrong with the values? P***** i** plinantsa ‘yung katawan,” he said.
Duterte said the deployment ban to Kuwait will stay until further notice because he cannot tolerate the maltreatment of OFWs.
He said he might as well resign if he cannot do something to ease the plight of OFWs.
“Kung wala rin lang akong magawa sa Pilipino, tapos ganito, eh wala akong silbi dito pagka-Presidente. Umalis na lang ako kaya,” he said.
