Ex OWWA worker told OFWs not to ‘conclude’ and ‘makisawsaw’ after viral FB live


Ex Overseas Workers Welfare Administrator Arnel Ignacio made a comment on the viral Facebook live of an overseas Filipino worker in Dubai regarding relief pack operation.

Ignacio, an actor and comedian, said that Joy Parafina, the OFW whose Facebook live gone viral for claiming that an OWWA officer cussed at her, is on tourist visa and has expired last March, thus making her an undocumented Filipino.

“Nakuha ko yung visa ni Joy, ang visa nya ay expired. Expired na yung visa nya – pumasok sya ng January, hanggag March na lang yung kanyang visa. So ginagawan na lang talaga ng paran, tinutulungan siya. E kaso inunang magalit at magpost, e marami tuloy nadamay,” Ignacio said.

He also mentioned that Filipinos are easy to defend one side without even knowing the real story behind.

“Ako naman ang pakiusap ko sa inyo, pagka nakakita kayo ng video, wag muna kayong mag co-conclude at mag-sawsawan na kayo kung sinong tama at mali,” Ignacio added.
