DFA career officers back envoy who allegedly hurt helper; call for ‘due process’


- Advertisment -

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Career Officer Corps and the Retired Ambassadors Association has expressed full support for the Philippine Ambassador to Brazil Marichu Mauro who was seen on CCTV footage hurting her own helper. 

In a statement, they called for the due process instead of her vilification in media.

“We, the DFA’s Career Officer Corps and the Retired Ambassadors Association, hereby express full support to Ambassador Marichu Mauro who is being pilloried in the social and printed media over the unfortunate incident in Brasilia. That single event should not define the character of Ambassador Mauro,” the group wrote. 

They added that they all know the envoy has served in Manama, Tel Aviv, and Milan, helping numerous distressed overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). 

“She has a very distinguished service record that spans three decades in promoting the welfare of our migrant workers, which is one of the three pillars of our foreign policy,” it added.
