Sa Pagkadakip Ng Employer Ng OFW Na Si Joanna Demafelis Anong Parusa Ang Nararapat Sa Kanila?


Overseas Filipino worker (OFW) Joanna Demafelis' employer and main suspect in her murder have been arrested by Lebanese authorities says the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Friday evening.

DFA Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said Nader Essam Assaf, a Lebanese national, was arrested by authorities in Lebanon.

They were identified as the principal suspects in the torture and murder of the 29-year-old domestic helper.

Demafelis’ remains were found in a freezer early this month in an apartment abandoned by her employers in Kuwait. An autopsy report showed she was severely beaten before being placed in the freezer more than a year ago.

“Kuwaiti authorities requested the assistance of Interpol in locating and arresting the couple who they believed fled to Lebanon or Syria shortly after the torture and murder of Demafelis,” Cayetano said in a statement.

“Kuwaiti authorities conveyed the arrest of Assaf to Ambassador Renato Villa during a meeting at the Ministry of Interior on Thursday,” he added.

Cayetano said President Rodrigo Duterte has already been informed of their arrests.

“The President welcomes the news that Nader Essam Assaf is now in the hands of authorities in Lebanon,” Cayetano said.
