The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) asked the Philippine Ambassador to Brazil to return to the Philippines following the release of video footage of her berating and mistreating her own household staff.
Philippine Ambassador Marichu Mauro has been serving the Filipino community in Brazil for more than two years.
According to a statement, the domestic helper has left Brasilia on October 21 and is back in the Philippines.
“The DFA is reaching out to her to ensure her well-being and cooperation in the investigation,” the DFA said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the government agency assured the public that a thorough investigation will be conducted.
