Duterte urged to rethink decision amid Duterte: Ban on OFW deployments to Kuwait now permanent

President Rodrigo Duterte has made the ban on the deployment of new migrant workers to Kuwait permanent following a tense diplomatic row over the rescue of distressed Filipinos by the Philippine Embassy.

Duterte said he would ask other countries, including China, to accommodate workers to be affected by the policy and vowed to provide for the needs of those who would come home from Kuwait.

“The ban stays permanently. There will be no more recruitment for — especially domestic helpers. Wala na (no more),” the president told reporters in Davao City upon his arrival from Singapore on Sunday.

“The money is there. If it has not been remitted to the National Treasury, I can always use emergency fund. To me, it’s a calamity… If my countrymen are suffering, I would use it. If you want, I would steal money from the central bank. But they (workers) have to come home,” he added.
