Filipina OFW in Paris attempts to escape abusive employer, falls from the building


PARIS- A 28-year-old Filipina overseas worker in France attempted to escape to her abusive employer. She fell from the second floor after using a blanket as an escape tool. 

According to the witness, a Filipina named “Jenny” was trying to escape through the window with a blanket. She accidentally released her hand from the blanket and fell to the ground.  

Fortunately, the Filipino community in Paris brought “Jenny” to the hospital. 

According to Bong Agustinez, ABS-CBN France correspondent: “Gusto raw niyang tumakas sa kanyang employer dahil minamaltrato siya, Pagdating ng mga imbestigador, sinabi namin ang katotohanan.” 

According to “Jenny”, “Umaalis po sila dun, nila-lock po ang pinto kaya hindi po ako makalabas. Sobra pong bastos niya kung ano-ano na po ang ginagawa niya, pinapagawa niya sa akin. Ayaw ko naman pong gawin, kasi alam ko naman po hindi po maganda. Tapos po, sobra pong pagod sa trabaho. Alas-sais po ako ng umaga nagsisimula hanggang alas dose ng gabi. Tatlo po yung bata na inaalagaan ko.”

The Philippine Embassy in Paris will help Jenny through DFA-OUMWA and POLO for her medical assistance. The embassy will also report the maltreatment to French authorities for further investigation. 

“The Embassy will coordinate with the concerned authorities for repatriation as soon as her medical condition allows her to do so,“ according to the email to ABS-CBN News.
