MANILA - The remains of an OFW who died after falling from the 43rd floor of a condominium building in Hong Kong are set to be repatriated next week.

"Sabi nila ang expected nila maipadala dyan July 18 kasi kahapon lang ako pumirma at kahapon ko lang nakita ang bangkay ng kapatid ko. Asikasuhin pa raw nila ang papers pero expected nila July 18," said Nimfa Carbon the sister of OFW Arlene Carbon.

Nimfa traveled to Hong Kong to personally identify the body of her sister.

"Kumuha ako ng ticket ko noong July 8. Pamasahe ko, pera ko ang ginamit ko para lang makapunta dito" Nimfa told Noli de Castro's program Kabayan on DZMM.

Nimfa suspects foul play in the death of her sister. This was further strengthened when she saw her body. She said the body was still intact.

"Kahapon nakita ko. Buo pa rin po ang mukha tapos malalim isang mata at may tahi sa sentido mga one and half inches tapos yung braso, kamay, buong-buo pero mapula, brown, pero walang sugat," described Nimfa.

She added, "Kaya hindi ako maniwala na tumalon siya. Kaya humihing ako ng tulong sa gubyerno".

Initial reports stated that Arlene fell from the 43rd floor of the condominium building where her employer lives.

Nimfa however said that she has yet to get hold of the police report as well as crime scene photos of where her sister fell.

"Wala po. Ayaw nilang ipakita sa akin. Ang sabi nila ipadala sa DFA Manila. Ang sabi ko ang gusto ko man lang makita ang mga picture kung saan siya nahulog. Tapos ang result ng autopsy ipadala na daw sa DFA Manila," she said.

She was also told that her employers are no longer in Hong Kong.

"Ang sabi nila wala na dito ang employer ni Arlene nasa China na. Umalis na sila dito," she said.

Nimfa is set to return to Manila on July 16, two days before the expected repatriation of her sister's remains.
