There is a far more serious problem which will face the Philippine government after the sex-for-fly scheme, only exposed recently, affecting OFWs in four Middle East countries, Gary Martinez, an official of the militant Filipino migrant organization said yesterday in an interview with Tungkaron Ta Ini radio program of DYRL.
This is the impending crackdown on undocumented OFWs which is to be carried out by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on July 3, or next week, Martinez said. The crackdown will include Filipinos, former workers who are housed in a tent city in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, he added.
While many of those living in the tent city have been sent home and repatriated with the Philippine government taking care of their expenses and plane tickets, hundreds more remain in the middle eastern kingdom, Martinez, who is assigned in South Korea and Hongkong as Migrante officer, said.

According to World Life Foundation (WWF), the leatherback turtle has survived for more than a hundred million years, but is now facing extinction. Recent estimates of numbers show that this specie is declining precipitously throughout its range. Leatherback turtles are priority species. WWF treats priority species as one of the most ecologically, economically and/or culturally important species on our planet. And so we are working to ensure such species can live and thrive in their natural habitats.
