A netizen is calling the attention of the government and private organization to help them repatriate the remains of his brother back to the Philippines.
Dindo Rodriguez posted on his Facebook account that his brother, Fidel S. Rodriguez, is currently in the Central Morgue in Abi Dhabi.
“Ang gusto lang po ng aming pamilya ay maiuwi ng maayos at makapiling namin kahit huling sandali ang aming kapatid,” Dindo said.
Dindo said that they were trying to coordinate with the employer of his brother but the latter was not responding.
The employer, a popular Filipino food-chain in the UAE that serves chicken barbecue, according to him, is not responding to their request.
He added that even the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi has attempted to contact the employer but to no avail.
“Tinawagan po siya ng Philippine Embassy, hindi po nila sinasagot lahat ng tawag. Kahit po mga kapatid ko, pinsan ko, anak ko, at anak ni Fidel, hindi nila sinisipot at sinasagot mga tawag. Ibig sabihin, ayaw nila gastusan dahil sila employer. Kami naman po ay hindi namamalimos sa kanila, ang ipinaglalaban lang po namin dito ay obligasyon nila. Sila lahat mag lakad at gumastos sa empleyado nila,” he added.
Dindo said that Fidel was always expressing concern for the company.
“Maawa naman po kayo, patay na kapatid ko, pinahihirapan niyo pa,” he further added.
Dindo didn’t mention the reason for her brother’s death.
