Two Filipino Engineers Could Be Jailed in Saudi

Two Filipino Engineers in Saudi Arabia have been threatened by their employer that they could not return back to the Philippines after submitting a case before a courtroom against the latter last month, a migrant staff' right group disclosed.

Migrante representatives in Eastern region chapter stated Gerardo Almonte, and Mark Davis, both mechanical engineers, have sought the group's assist after Mohd Al Haider Group of Corporations based in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, refused to provide them an exit clearance.

The two, who labored for the company since August 2008, have filed their resignation letters, telling their employer that they'd no longer be renewing their contract because they'd be returning to the Philippines for "good."

However instead of issuing an exit clearance to Almonte and Davis, the employer even threatened to file a case in opposition to them, stopping them from returning to their country.

Migrante has already endorsed the case to Department Of Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz for acceptable action.
