LONDON – A spy camera caught a Filipina domestic helper in the middle of a pot session with other drug users in a small room in Paris.
Raquel, not her real name, has been working in Paris for almost 10 years now.
An asset of ABS-CBN Europe, who pretended to be a poseur buyer, took the video.
The small room yielded the usual drug paraphernalia from foil, tooter and burner used to burn shabu.
This disturbing illegal activity prompted Dondon Noche, live-in partner of Raquel, to bring his case to ABS-CBN Europe News Bureau.
Noche is not only after the welfare of Raquel, but more importantly to save his 5-year-old daughter from getting sick.
Raquel has custody of the daughter.
Noche said his daughter is losing a lot of weight and has developed cough problems due to heavy smoke in the rented room.
Noche noted there is a serious drug problem in Paris and many Filipinos are victims.
He said there is big money in the illegal business, and this is contributing to the high incidence of rape cases in the French capital.
For the moment, Noche wants his daughter back.
He already asked the Philippine Embassy for support and even showed the video.
ABS-CBN Europe learned that the embassy coordinated with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Manila, but no action yet from said office. Danny Buenafe, ABS-CBN Europe News Bureau Chief
