MANILA (Reuters) – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte warned yesterday he may impose a permanent ban on sending workers to Kuwait and withdraw his countrymen working there if another Filipino domestic helper is raped and dies. The comments were the second time in less than a week that Mr Duterte expressed anger about alleged abuse in Kuwait, where he said low-paid Filipinos were made to endure rape and starvation. He asked the governments of Kuwait and other Middle East countries to take steps to end the abuse and “to treat my countrymen as human beings with dignity”. “One more incident … I’m going to ban,” he said. “And I’m sorry, the Filipinos there, you can all go home. If you leave, they will also be having a hell of a time adjusting to that.”
