- Advertisment -

A Filipina domestic worker has reportedly committed suicide in Lebanon at a shelter run by the Philippine Embassy, days after a rights group complained about accommodation at the shelter.

The unnamed overseas Filipina worker has arrived in the shelter on Friday and took her own life the following day.

According to a statement posted by the embassy on their Facebook page, the domestic worker has succumbed to injuries on Sunday, adding that details of incident are currently being investigated.

“The Embassy was able to speak to the Filipina’s eldest sister in the Philippines as well as her cousin in Lebanon to convey its condolences. It also gave assurances in extending assistance on the possibility of bringing her remains back to the Philippines. As of the moment, Beirut is still under lockdown and international commercial flights in Lebanon are yet to resume,” the statement added.
