On Wednesday, Jakatia Pawa, a Pinay OFW, was executed by public hanging for the murder of the daughter of her Kuwaiti employer sometime in 2007.
The news sent shock waves across the social media particularly among the ranks of the overseas Filipino workers who sympathized with the sad plight of another OFW.
On Facebook, Redmae Quia opened her hearts out to the social media following the news of the hanging to death of a fellow OFW by appealing to the Kuwaiti authorities to stop killing the OFW’s.
