Tatlumpung Pilipino na papunta sana sa Dubai ang pinigil sa pag-alis ng Maynila matapos itong matuklasan na nagplano silang manatili sa Gulf ng bansa upang magtrabaho.

Ang mga opisyal ng Bureau of Immigration (BI) ay pinigil ang 18 kababaihan at 12 lalaki noong Biyernes sa Ninoy Aquino International Airport sa Maynila, kung saan inaangkin na sila ay papuntang Dubai upang bisitahin ang mga miyembro ng pamilya. Gayunpaman, sa panahon ng pagtatanong, 29 sa mga ito ang umamin na sila ay magtatrabaho sa Dubai bilang mga waiters sa iba’t ibang mga hotel, iniulat ng The Filipino Times.

Sinabi ni BI Port Operations Division chief Grifton Medina na ang kanilang mga dokumento sa paglalakbay ay ibinigay lamang sa kanila sa pamamagitan ng kanilang handler, na nakilala nila sa labas ng paliparan, sa araw na sila ay nakatakdang lumipad sa Dubai. “Lahat sila ay nagsabi na sila ay bibisita sa isang kaibigan o kamag-anak sa Dubai para sa isang bakasyon at ipinakita ang katibayan ng kanilang mga tourist visa at return tickets,” sabi ni Medina.

Sinabi din ni Medina na may mga hindi pagkakapare-pareho sa kanilang mga pahayag, na nag-udyok sa mga opisyal ng imigrasyon na sila’y imbestigahan. Ayon sa BI-Travel Control and Enforcement Unit chief Erwin Ortañez, isa sa mga Pilipino ang lilipad papunta sa Baghdad upang magtrabaho bilang isang superbisor sa kusina at nagpakita ng pekeng visa. Sinabi ni Ortañez na isa lamang sa kanila ang mayroong wastong tourist visa na ibinigay ng UAE Ministry of Interior.

Sinabi ni BI Commissioner Jaime Morente na ang pag-aalsa ng mga pasahero ay isang malaking hakbang sa kanilang kampanya laban sa human trafficking. “Bilang isang resulta ng insidente na ito, naligtas namin ang aming mga kasamahan mula sa panganib na inabuso at pinagsasamantalahan sa ibang bansa, na kung saan sila ay madaling magdurusa dahil sa kanilang katayuan bilang mga undocumented na manggagawa,” sabi ni Morente.
