Nitong nagdaang araw ay lumabas ang ulat na may gustong ipa-deport ang Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) na Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) dahil sa pambabastos sa Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte at mapanirang social media post na may layunin daw na udyukan ang mga Pilipino na magalit sa gobyerno. Magugunita na sa isang video ay sinabi ni Ordidor na gusto niyang sampalin ang Presidente.
“We are constrained to act for the deportation of a Filipina working as caregiver in Taiwan for the crime of cyber libel for willful posting of nasty and malevolent materials against President Duterte on Facebook intended to cause hatred amidst the global health crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
…It has come to our knowledge that Ms. Ordidor is using several social media accounts, among which are Lenale Elanel Egot, Mha Lan Dee, Linn Silawan and Hampas Lupa and has a group organized to discredit and malign the President and destabilize the government.
Due to her acts, POLO coordinated with her broker and employer on her deportation on the basis of the gravity of Ordidor’s offense under Philippine Law. The sharing and posting of such videos are punishable under Cyber libel under Republic Act No. 10175.” sabi ng DOLE sa kanilang press statement.
Nakilala ang OFW na si Elanel Ordidor nagtatrabaho ngayon sa Taiwan. Ang hakbang na ipa-deport si Ordidor ay pinangunahan ni Philippine Labor Attaché in Taichung Fidel Macauyag.
Hindi nagustuhan ni Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon ang naging aksyon ni Macauyag. Banat ni Drilon, hindi daw kwalipikado at walang kakayahan daw si Macauyag.
“Mr. Macauyag’s irresponsible act toward a helpless overseas Filipino worker is clearly an abandonment of his sworn duties to protect the welfare of OFWs,” the senator, a former secretary of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE),” sabi ni Drilon.
Ayon kay Drilon, isusulong niya ang imbestigasyon laban sa labor attaché.
