MANILA, Philippines — Three female Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Jeddah were allegedly sexually assaulted by their employer and passed to different employers to do odd jobs for a fee.

The Philippine Consulate General in Jeddah dispatched a team to Al Ula in Madinah province on Monday to assist the three OFWs and two other Filipina workers in distress.

The victims were assisted by a lawyer and a translator in presenting their complaint against their employer at the Al Ula Public Prosecutor’s Office.

The accused employer was immediately detained after the conclusion of the preliminary investigation.

Legal representation by the legal retainer of the consulate will be provided to the victims.

They will also be assisted in their criminal and labor complaints, and will be brought to the consulate for temporary shelter.
