MANILA-Vice President Jejomar C. Binay Friday assured that the Filipino nurse reportedly raped in Libya is now under the custody of the Philippine embassy in Tripoli.
“Na-contact na namin ‘yong ambassador natin sa Libya at nasa embassy na ngayon ‘yong OFW at binibigyan ng kanyang mga pangangailangan,” Binay said in an interview in Butuan City.
“Talagang peligroso ngayon d’yan para sa buhay n’yo dahil sa higpit ng labanan,” he added.
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) had raised alert level 4 in Libya.
As Presidential Adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers’ (OFW) Concerns, Binay appealed to OFWs to heed the government’s call for them to come back home.
“Nananawagan ako sa ating mga kababayan sa Libya na sundin ang tawag ng DFA para sa immediate and mandatory evacuation,” Binay said.
"Agaran kayong makipag-ugnay sa mga opisyal natin sa embahada nang masiguro ang kaligtasan ninyo,” he added.
The Philippine Embassy in Libya is in KM 7 Gargaresh Road, Abu Nawas, Tripoli. Embassy staff may be reached at (+218) 918244208, (+218-21) 483-3966, as well as firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
