Patnubay Leaks: Pera ng yumaong OFW, Nawala ng Konsulada!

Pinili po nating ilagay ang email exchanges dito (sa halip na magsulat tayo ng isang artikulo) para ang katotohanan ay maipaparating natin ng maayos sa ating mga mambabasa.

Isang pamilya na umaasa  na may matatanggap na pera;  na kung walang isang nagmalasakit na kaibigan  na nagpa-abot sa atin ng kasong ito ay malamang habang buhay ang kanilang paghihintay sa nawalang pera.  Malinaw na may problema sa nasanayang sistema para sa pag-pauwi ng bangkay ng OFW at ang sistemang  ito ay dapat mabago.

Nakakalungkot din na kailangan pang idulog sa ating mga NGOs  ang mga kasong ganito. At lalong nakakalungkot na kailangan nating makipagbrasohan para sa katotohanan, katarungan, kagalingan at karapatan ng mga OFWs.

Wala tayong inakusahan dito at wala po tayong ibang hangad maliban sa maipaglaban ang karapatan ng naiwang pamilya ng isang OFW na pumanaw mahigit dalawang taon na ang nakaraan.  Isang bagay lang sigurado dito at ito may nawalang pera, kung nasaan man ito ngayon ay hindi natin alam.

Maari lang po ay basahin nyong mabuti ang email exchanges sa baba. Maari kayong magkomento pero iwasan ang magiging mapaghusga, manlalalit at magsulat ng hindi katanggap-tanggap. Sa halip ay hiningi namin ang inyong mga suhestyon para maiwasang maulit pa ang mga pangyayaring ganito. Kung sakali ay may mga kakilala kayo na ganito din ang problema maari nyo ring isama sa inyong mga komento.

Thank you so much USEC Seguis and Congen Garibay,

I understand po, specially to Congen Garibay na kauupo lang at wala pa sya sa time ng pagrepatriate ng bangkay.

1. We may request na rin po siguro to check with the Al Rahji Bank if the cheque was really encashed or canceled. Sa Philippine Consulate of Jeddah naman nakapangalan ang cheque at walang ibang makapag-encash noon.

2. I searched for Al Bin Jarallah Company at nakita ko ang kanilang contact details sa kanilang website at heto po yon http://www.binjarallah.com/jarallah/pages/contactus.htm#head

para matanong kung kanino nila ibinigay ang cheque.

3. If di na-encash sa Bank at kung sa Ministry of Labor binigay ang cheque, then ang tatanggap ng cheque ay ang Department of Expatriate Worker’s Care and as SOP, iforward nila ang cheque sa Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Kaya we will request na rin for PCJ to inquire sa Ministry of Foreign Affairs…

There is really a need to change the procedure in the repatriation of remains dyan sa consulate ng Jeddah..

Again thank you so much,
Joseph

2012/5/6 Rafael Seguis

Kindly take note. I could see Consul General Garibay is exerting best efforts to trace the whereabouts of the check in question. I only hope it has not been encashed. If it has become stale, a replacement check could be issued.

Sir,

We have been trying to contact the Manager of the late Sanchez’s company, but he has changed cellphone. We are waiting to get his new number. We are also asking Riyadh PE’s assistance in finding out with the company, which is based in Riyadh, on what happened to the cheque. We are also requesting Riyadh PE to inquire with the Ministry of Labor, since the communications coming from the company say that the cheque was already forwarded to that Ministry. The Consulate’s records say that the Consulate never received the cheque. If it was not received by the Consulate, it cannot be received by the family.

Hindi pa rin ba makita or ma trace kong saan napunta ang check na yon hang gang ngayon? .Ang laki kasi ng halaga ng check and so important at that for the bereaved family to negligently lose it. Who could be responsible for the lose of that check? I can understand the impatience of the family and Patnubay Group. It has been two (2) years na kasi. . . .Unless it has already been encashed, the check has become stale.

Maraming maraming salamat Ate Toots, mamaya gagawa din ako ng draft ng recommendations natin on how to improve the procedure of repatriating the remains ng namayapang OFW.

2012/5/6 Susan Ople

Hi Tas! Update lang – nagkausap na kami ni Mang Fidel Sanchez. Luluwas siya kasama ang asawa nung namatay na OFW dala mga dokumento. Ire-refer namin sila sa aming law firm, sa PECABAR, para yung law firm na ang susulat sa DFA-OUMWA. Tingnan natin kung paano sasagutin. Feeling ko kasi dapat from now on, lahat ng mga sagot ng DFA at pati ng Philippine Embassy sa pamilya ay kailangan in writing na. Kung wala pa rin mangyari, puwede na tayo sigurong humingi ng formal investigation sa Ombudsman. Let’s keep this gameplan to ourselves muna. Salamat. T.

Dear Sirs,

Tapos na po yong hininging palugit na two weeks para mahanap yong nawalang pera na benefits ni yumaong Magtibay Sanchez, isang OFW sa Jeddah na namatay mahigit dalawang taon na ang nakaraan pero hindi nakarating ang pera sa kanyang pamilya samantalang may cheque naman na na-issue ang company sa pangalan ng ating konsulada.

As I had said, may pananagutan din kami sa pamilya ni yumaong Magtibay Sanchez na lumapit sa amin para makuha yong pera na pag-aari nila. Naghintay din sila sa araw na ito dahil yon yong pinangako ko sa kanila na may sagot na ang consulate kung nasaan ang kanilang pera.

Pagpasensyahan nyo na rin po ang aming pagpursige.. Ang laban na ito ay hindi lang para sa pamilya ni yumaong Magtibay Sanchez kundi para sa lahat ng OFWS kasama na ako doon. Ayaw po namin na mahalintulad ito sa kaso ni OFW Lising, na namatay sa Jeddah noong 1994 pero hanggang ngayon ay nawawala pa rin ang benefits na dapat para sa kanyang pamilya.

We will not make a news story about this issue.. Instead, we will post this whole thread sa aming website.. in the spirit of FAIRNESS, TRUTH AND JUSTICE.

Maraming Salamat,
Joseph

Thank you, Joseph for your understanding. Thanks also for your suggestions. Regarding the Embassy’s way of doing repatriation of remains, we have thought about that, too. It would seem we are in a dilemma. Kung hihintayin pa ang mga death benefits, baka naman lalong tumagal ang pagpapauwi ng mga labi ng namatay. Merong mga kamag-anak na ninanais na maiuwi agad ang bangkay ng kanilang minamahal. Anyway, bigla akong may brainstorm. Tatanungin namin ang mga next of kin kung ano ang kanilang gusto, bangkay muna o bangkay plus death benefits.

thank you so much usec and thank you so much congen.

in all honesty, masakit sa kalooban ko na magpopost ng ganung tema sa patnubay online but that would be our last resort if sakaling wala kaming sagot na makukuha; bilang NGO na nilapitan rin ng mga ofws at bilang ofw na rin.

second, it would be unfair to congen dahil wala pa sya sa time na nangyari yon.

We wish na there would be some changes sa procedure ng repatriation of remains section ng ating konsulada.. Mas maigi na gagayahin nila ang proceso ng ating embahada dito sa riyadh. which hindi mag-issue ng NOC (No Objection Certificate) ang embassy kung hindi maibigay ang last pay and benefits ng yumaong ofw. (at least yong problema sa process na ito ay yong yong conversion from riyals to pesos na matanggap ng pamilya…).. sa ganung proceso, wala ng pagtatalo-talo kung natanggap ba ng consulate ang last pay and benefits ng yumaong OFW.

by the way, another way to check is thru the bank since nakapangalan ang cheque sa consulate natin.. doon sa bank malalaman kung na-encash ba itong cheque or hindi. yan kung walang documents ang company na maipakita na nanareceive ng taga konsulada ang cheque.

Ito lang po muna at maraming salamat,
Joseph

Sir,

I was informed that the employer of the late Narciso Sanchez is based in Riyadh, but he was assigned in Jeddah. This may have contributed to the confusion where the cheque should be sent. We tried to locate it here at the Consulate, but we do not seem to have any record receiving the cheque. We will give it another try, Sir. We will also reply to Mr. Espiritu, as soon as we have a notion where the cheque might be. I agree that it is a discomfiting thought if somebody else pocketed the money instead of the recipient.

Norman, may I know status of the alleged lost check? Hindi ba ma trace diyan sa Consulate if it has been forwarded to OUMWA? The insinuation that since the check in question could not be traced is the proceeds went to someone else pockets? I don’t like that!

Dear all,

Naka-attached po dito yong copy ng cheque na na-issue ng company ni yumaong ofw Narciso Magtibay Sanchez to Philippine Consulate last 2010.

Please check na lang po kung nasaan ang cheque na ito at paki-imbestiga na habang hindi pa ito sufficient evidence na natanggap or na-encash itong cheque or kung nasaan yong pera dahil dalawang taon na po.

Gusto rin namin mag-inquire kung ano ang procedures at requirements ng pag-issue ng NOC sa Jeddah Consulate. Sa embassy dito sa riyadh, wala namang issue na ganito dahil hindi sila mag-issue ng NOC kung hindi maideposit sa bank account ng embahada ang benefits, unpaid salary, unpaid vacation atbp para sa namatay na OFW (except na yong makarating na pera dyan sa Pamilya ay in peso and not in Saudi riyals, na maari ding mabawasan dahil sa conversion).

Please find the email exchanges below

1. OUMWA’s Eleonor Tolentino told CMA Case Officer Anna Navarro na yong pera ay nasa SAudi LAbor Office pa.
2. OFW Cesario Andal clearly stated in his email below na nakapangalan sa Consulate ang Cheque..
3. Naipaliwanag ko naman ng maayos sa email ko ang explanation for repatriation of remains..
4. January 2010 pa pala ito namatay at npauwi noon june 2010 pa napauwi sa Pilipinas ang bangkay. dalawang taon na po hindi pa dumating ang pera sa pamilya?
5. Pero ng tinanong ng kasamahan namin sa CMA ang taga OUMWA na si Ellene Tolentino, ang sagot ay nasa saudi labor office daw.. ????

Pakicheck na lang po kung nasaan ang pera ng yumaong OFW.. At parusahan ang naging cause ng delay.. ilan pa kaya ang ganitong pangyayari no?

Dear Anski,

Sana maging malinaw sana ang sagot ni Eleonor Tolentino ng OUMWA sa atin, dapat in black and white. Kung sakali hindi magbago ng statement si Ellene Tolentino na taga OUMWA , then malabo pala ang proceso ng Jeddah Consulate sa pag-issue ng NOC for repatriation of remains ng mga namatay na OFWs.

Dito sa riyadh, hindi mag-issue ang embassy ng NOC kung hindi maideposit ng employer or company sa bank account ng embassy ang benefits, unpaid salaries and other entitlements ng OFW na namatay. Maliban na lamang kung nandito ang (totoong) pamilya ng namatay na OFW.

If it is true na sa saudi labor office ibinigay ang benefits ni Yumaong narciso, the consulate should have a copy of the cheque or reciepts as proof na natanggap ng saudi labor nga ang benefits bago sila mag-issue ng NOC. para walang dispute, para walang duda in the future.. Katulad nito June 2010 pa namatay yong OFWs at hindi pa natanggap ang monetary benefits?

pero sa message (see first email) ni OFW Cesario Andal ng makuha ko ito sa Balitang Middle East FB Page ang sinabi ay may kopya sila ng CHEKE NA NAKAPANGALAN SA JEDDAH CONSULATE.

So wala sa Saudi Labor Office, kasi sa JEDDAH CONSULATE nakapangalan daw ang CHEKE..

Bakit sinasabi nila ngayon naman ni Ellene Tolentino na nasa Saudi Labor Office.. ? (baka ibig nyang sabihin ay Ministry of Labor… under Department of Expatriate Worker’s Care)

Please find the attached standard procedure for repatriation of remains.. and check items 4 and 5..

ilan pa kaya ang may ganitong kaso, naka-issue ang tseke sa kanila tapos ang sagot ay nasa Saudi Labor Office. tsk tsk tsk.

God bless and More power,

Joseph

We got this information from Balitang Middle East FB Group page, re End of Service Benefits of the late OFW Narciso Sanchez who died last 2010, pero hindi daw nakarating sa pamilya. Samantalang may kopya naman sila ng Cheque galing sa company. (Also please find the FB Discussion which i also pasted below).

As SOP, alam namin na hind makapag-issue ang ating consualate ng No Objection to repatriate the OFWs remains, if hindi maibigay ang ESB. In fact dito sa Riyadh, kailang ideposit muna ng company/employer ang amount to the EMBASSY’s bank account.

Siguro, hindi lang naliwanagan ang pamilya tungkol doon sa money, or hindi lang nila alam kung papano magclaim.. Please assist ASAP..

Thank you so much and God bless,
Joseph

Lumapit lang po kayo sa OUMWA (Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers Affairs) ng DFA. Sila ang makakatulong sa inyo.

If ang pera na ibig mong sabihin (sa kopya ng cheque ng company) ay yong para sa End of Service Benefits or mga backwages… yes dapat yong pamilya ng yumaong ofw ay dapat pupunta doon sa OUMWA para maiclaim ito..

Hindi maaring itatanggi ng consulate yan dahil kasama yan sa proceso nila sa repatration of remains ng nasawing OFW.. Hindi magissue ng No objection letter (for repatriation) ang embassy / consulate kung hindi maibigay sa kanila or maideposit sa kanilang bank account ang ESB at backwages ng namatay na OFW. Ito naman ay maaring kunin ng pamilya ng nasawing OFW sa DFA OUMWA ( converted na to in pesos pagdating sa pinas)

Kung hindi talaga natanggap ng family ng nasawing OFW, maari silang humingi ng tulong sa

Center for Migrant Advocacy, Philippines (CMA-Phils)
#15 (U-7) Casal Bldg., Anonas Road, Project 3,
1102 Quezon City, Philippines
Telephone: +63 2 9905140; Telefax: +63 2 4330684
Email: cmaphils@pldtdsl.net
Website: www.pinoy-abroad.net

If you are representing the company ng nasawing OFW, maari nyo rin itong maicheck sa ating consulate dyan kung natanggap ba ng family ang pera na yan or hindi. Huwag yong verbal.. Make a formal letter, with letter head ng company nyo na mag-inquire kayo kung natanggap ba ng family ng nasawing OFW ang cheque na binigay ng company..

if didedmahin kayo maari po kaming makatulong na magfollow-up.. You may initiate a contact with us sa link na ito http://patnubay.org/?page_id=97 ….
