MANILA, Philippines — A Filipina household worker was allegedly raped by a Kuwaiti police officer, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Wednesday.
The DFA stated that Chargé d’Affaires Mohd Noordin Lomondot of the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait reported that local authorities have issued an arrest warrant against the suspect identified as 22-year-old Fayed Naser Hamad Alajmy.
Lomondot, the DFA cited, stated that Alajmy was the one who aided the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) with the finger scanning registration at the airport when she arrived in Kuwait last June 4.
DFA added that Alajmy supposedly kidnapped and assaulted the Filipina household worker.
Lomondot, in the interim, cited that the Filipina’s employer is cooperating with the embassy and Kuwaiti authorities.
“The [DFA], through the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait, is closely coordinating with Kuwaiti authorities for the speedy arrest of the suspect in the rape case involving a Filipina household service worker in Kuwait.”
“The Philippine Government will exert all efforts to ensure that justice is served,” the statement added.
