MANILA, Philippines - Two Filipinas who accused a diplomat of sexual harassment are confident that truth will prevail.
Alias "Joy" said they had expected United Arab Emirates Ambassador Moosa Abdulwahid Alkhajah to deny the accusations they hurled against him.
But this has not dampened their spirits, Joy said. "Ipagpapatuloy talaga namin ang kaso sa kanya."
Her sister, "Lily," meanwhile, said their lawyer called them after their story was aired over TVPatrol Thursday night.
“Hindi lang naman kami ang nakaranas nung pangaabuso niya," said Lily.
The sisters admitted they do not have pictures or videos to show the abuses committed by the ambassador against them and other staff of the UAE Embassy.
“Pero nakapag-complain naman kami agad sa Secretary niya noong mangyari yun,” Lily added.
The complainants said they were advised by their lawyer to prepare in case the Senate summons them to a hearing in the coming days.
