CBCP offers prayers for OFW found dead in Saudi Arabia
By Ferdinand Patinio

MANILA (Philippines News Agency) — The head of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission for the Pastoral Care for Migrants and Itinerant People (CBCP-ECMI) on Monday offered prayers for the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who was killed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) last week.

“We pray for her peace with God, her loved ones to be stronger and trust God more for His justice and mercy,” said CBCP-ECMI chairman Bishop Ruperto Santos in an interview.

Santos expressed hope that the Philippine and Saudi Arabian authorities will act swiftly to bring the perpetrator of the crime to justice.

“We pray and hope that all our government and KSA authorities exert effort to find, prosecute and punish the killer of our OFWs,” Santos said.

The Balanga prelate expressed sadness over the death of 52-year-old OFW found inside a hotel in Jeddah.

“It is very sad and tragic news. A single life is very important. All life must be protected, promoted. It is urgent that the government must focus more on the welfare and wellbeing of our OFWs in KSA,” he said.

“A necessary and thorough investigation must be conducted to know the truth and justice will be properly served,” Santos added. (PNA)
