Filipinos in Iraq urged to help PH gov’t nab illegal recruiters
ERBIL, Iraq —The Philippine Embassy in Baghdad today urged members of the Filipino community in Kurdistan and other parts of Iraq to come forward so that it could help in taking the necessary action against the illegal recruiters who have victimized many of them.
The Embassy, at the same time, warned jobseekers in the Philippines against recruiters promising jobs in Kurdistan. A government ban on the deployment of workers to Iraq remains in effect because of the prevailing security situation here.
Chargé d’Affaires Elmer G. Cato told members of the Filipino community here in Kurdistan’s regional capital the Embassy is ready to assist them in going after illegal recruiters both in Iraq and in the Philippines. Details.
