Solon wants House probe on ambassador’s maltreatment of her household staff

The chairman of the House Committee on Overseas Workers Affairs on Tuesday called for a congressional investigation into the alleged maltreatment received by a Filipina domestic worker from her employer, Philippine Ambassador to Brazil Marichu Mauro. TUCP Partylist Rep. Raymond Democrito Mendoza TUCP Partylist Rep. Raymond Democrito Mendoza aired the proposal as the TUCP condemned Mauro’s behavior against a fellow Filipino while abroad. The mistreatment of the 51-year-old household service worker was exposed in the Brazilian media when video clips surfaced showing Mauro beating her in their home. “We in labor are utterly shocked at the behavior that was exhibited by Ambassador Marichu Mauro in the videos that were released. It is absolutely disgusting for a civil servant, and someone supposedly representing the interests of the Filipino people in a foreign country to so cavalierly beat and mistreat her employees,” said Mendoza. He added:  “And for what reason? Because she believes she is entitled to harm others who she may think to be in a lower station than her? “ “Our OFWs are hailed as our bagong bayani yet we cannot even protect them from abuse at the hands of our own diplomats!,” said Mendoza. Mauro has been recalled to home office and is now facing investigation by the Department of Foreign Affairs. Mendoza said Mauro’s actions should be investigated , adding that legal charges should also be filed if the envoy and others were involved in the “savage treatment “ of the domestic helper. “There is abuse of our kapwa Filipino being done overseas, right under the very noses of our government!  This is a very difficult situation, with the worker vulnerable and fearful for their job while in another country no less,” said Mendoza. The administration lawmaker also called on government to further strengthen its “mechanisms for reporting” instances of abuse against Filipino workers. “Should Ambassador Marichu Mauro be found guilty, she should be expelled from the foreign service. We are not tolerant of the abuse of workers, especially when we condemn the barbaric treatment our workers receive at the hands of their foreign employers,” the party-list lawmaker stated. .....»»

Opposition solons chide General Parlade on red-tagging

Opposition lawmakers chided Thursday Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade, a staunch anti-communist military official, for allegedly red-tagging actress Liza Soberano after appearing in a webinar against gender-based exploitation and sexual harassment. Parlade commented on Soberano when she appeared in the webinar sponsored by Gabriela Youth. Deputy Minority Leader and Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate said Parlade has been “red-tagging anyone who works or espousing the same cause and issues of progressive groups.” “Anybody and everybody should speak out against abuse and not let them be until they are extinguished,” said Zarate. He chided Parlade for allegedly assuming that “celebrities, the youth, women, urban poor, lumad and rural folk are ignorant or even stupid, to stand up for their rights and beliefs on their own.” In a separate statement, Gabriela Partylist Rep. Arlene Brosas finds it “starkly ironic” for Parlade to appeal to stop red-tagging Soberano when it was the military official who actually made the accusation. “By saying that Soberano is “not yet an NPA,” he is maliciously associating the actress with the armed movement when what she did in the youth forum was only to speak up for all the victims of gender-based violence and abuse,” said Brosas. She stated: “It is clear that Parlade, the NTF-ELCAC and the paid trolls are the ones who are rabidly red-tagging Liza Soberano and other female celebrities and influencers who are taking a stand and speaking out against the macho-fascism under the Duterte regime.” Reacting to the statements of the Makabayan solons and Senator Risa Hontiveros, Parlade said it is “government’s job to expose this duplicitous nature of the CPP (Communist Party of the Philippines). “But we differ in the way Gabriela exploits these genuine advocates, because the CPP’s underground MAKIBAKA, is the one stirring and orchestrating it,” said the general. He described the CPP as a monster that “knows no friend.” “They will feed you to the lion’s den if you are not careful. This is what happened to Jo Lapira, Ren Manalo, Camille Manangan etc., Gabriela Youth who were all killed for ceasing to be a plain activist and ended up being with the terrorist,” Parlade noted. .....»»
