The Department of Labor and Employment is taking a more hardened stance to protect overseas Filipino workers following the death of Joanna Daniela Demafelis in Kuwait.

DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said all Philippine Overseas Labor Offices have been ordered to report all cases of abuse in their jurisdictions within 24 hours.

A command center will be set up as well to help handle the complaints of OFWs and their families.

The DOLE will also be sending a team to Kuwait and other Middle East countries to ensure the safety of workers there. ANC, Dateline Philippines, 21 February 2018
