2 OFWs could face jail in Saudi Arabia

MANILA, Philippines – Two Filipino engineers in Saudi Arabia have been threatened by their employer that they could not return home after filing a case before a court against the latter last month, a migrant workers' right group disclosed.

Migrante eastern region chapter said Gerardo Almonte, and Mark Davis, both mechanical engineers, have sought the group's help after Mohammad Al Haider Group of Companies based in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, refused to give them an exit clearance.

The two engineers, who worked for the company since August 2008, have filed their resignation letters, telling their employer that they would no longer be renewing their contract because they would be returning to the Philippines for "good."

But instead of issuing an exit clearance to Almonte and Davis, the employer even threatened to file a case against them, preventing them from returning to their country.

Migrante has already endorsed the case to Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz for appropriate action. - By Dennis Carcamo (Philstar News Service,
