MANILA, Philippines – Former Philippine Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates Roy Señeres has called on investigators to look deeper into the sexual harassment case against Ambassador Shulan Primavera.

“Kailangan maimbestigahan ng mabuti ito. We have to look deeper into this kasi there could be more than meets the eye, 'yung mga sinasabi kong mga intrigahan diyan sa Kuwait,” he said.

Señeres said Primavera has a good track record as a career official and long-time envoy.

He added that while investigators should give credence to the domestic helper, there is a possibility that Primavera may be a victim of warring factions among Filipino workers in Kuwait.

“It is very likely na itong si Ambassador Primavera ay mayroong kinakampihan o ‘di maganda ang conciliation sa conflicting parties,” said Señeres.

“I think we really have to be fair here. Let's give both sides benefit of the doubt. Kailangan ma-imbestigahan ng mga credible officials of government ang accusations na ito,” he added. -- ANC
