News in Pictures: Hong Kong OFWs Slam DoLE Inaction on Case vs. Labatt; Gabriela Calls for Congressional Inquiry

HONG KONG — Hundreds of OFWs troop to the Philippine Consulate General office in Hong Kong on Sunday to reiterate their demand for the immediate recall of Labor Attaché Romulo Salud.

“Each day that Romulo Salud remains in his position is an insult to Agnes Tenorio and an injustice to all OFWs who have experienced rudeness from and neglect by Philippine officials abroad. No OFW should again be made victim of his arrogance and irresponsibility,” said Eman Villanueva, secretary-general of the United Filipinos in Hong Kong (UNIFIL-Migrante-HK).

According to Villanueva, the Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz has not released any report regarding the status of their investigation and has yet to make an effort to reach out to Tenorio.

“Tomorrow, Gabriela Women’s Party shall file a resolution in the Congress to call for an inquiry. We also sent letters to several senators and Vice-President Jejomar Binay about this matter. We urge President Noynoy Aquino himself to listen to the demand of OFWs: we want Salud out of Hong Kong for he does not deserve his office,” Villanueva said. (Photo courtesy of UNIFIL-Migrante-HK /
