A Filipina OFW working in the United Arab Emirates has been sentenced to death.
The OFW allegedly killed her male employee in the United Arab Emirates who tried to rape her. DFA will appeal the case.
Jennifer Dalquez, a 28 years old Filipina went to become an OFW in UAE in the year 2011.
Jennifer was arrested on December 12 after allegedly killing her employer with a knife for attempting to rape her.
Jennifer’s mother appeals to the government for help. She is asking the government for help as she does not want her daughter to die.
Jennifer was supposed to go home in January this year. Jennifer was able to talk to her mother last Wednesday and informed her that she was sentenced to die.
To confirm the case, Jennifer’s mother was accompanied by the ABS CBN reporter to the DFA. The DFA confirmed that Jennifer was in fact sentenced to death. The case will be appealed as Jennifer merely defended her honor when her employer tried to rape her.
Jennifer’s mother appealed her case to DILG Secretary Mar Roxas. Secretary Mar Roxas promised to personally look after the case.
Jennifer’s mother and her entire family in General Santos City are hoping that the sentence will be reversed.
