Hong Kong Government to pay legal expenses over a OFW that had been arrested in a protest

A judge in Kowloon City granted an application for legal costs filed by an OFW who was one of the arrested protesters against the government in August in Mong Kok but later cleared any charges.

The said OFW is Jethro Pioquinto, 36 years old and a dancer at Hong Kong Disneyland.  Pioquinto's application allowed Kowloon City Acting Principal Magistrate Ada Yim to get all his legal expenses.

According to Judge Yim, she granted Pioquinto's application because she found nothing wrong with it and it was a bit far from the starting point of the protesters.

Judge Yim added that the police is knowing the Pioquinto's residence and it was located in Mong Kok, so they arrested him.  But after being arrested, he spoke and explained to the police why he was at the scene of the protest.

Judge Yim told the court that an assessment would be made on whether the government would approve the requested amount submitted by Pioquinto's camp.

Kapag bumagsak na ang resistensiya ng taong may HIV, magkakaroon na ng sintomas ng pamamayat, lagnat at ubo. Ito ng tinatawag na AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).

Nakukuha ang sakit na HIV o Aids sa pamamagitan ng:

*Pakikipagtalik. Pwede kang mahawaan kapag ika'y nakapagtalik sa isang taong positibo sa HIV virus. Sa mga hindi gumagamit ng condom, halos 80% ng kaso ng HIV-AIDS ay nagmumula sa unsafe sex.

*Pagpapanganak at Pagpapasuso ng Sanggol. Kapag ang nanay ay positibo sa HIV Virus, puwede niyang maipasa ang HIV sa kanyang sanggol. Kailangan magpatingin ang nanay sa doktor at mabakunahan ang kanyang sanggol.

*Paggamit ng Karayom. Ang mga drug addicts na naghihiraman ng mga karayom o injections ay puwedeng magka AIDS dahil ang pagsasalin ng hindi malinis na dugo ay isang paraan din ng infected blood via blood transfusion.

Upang makaiwas sa HIV o para hindi mahawaan ng sakit na ito sundin ang mga sumusunod:
*Huwag makipagtalik kung kani-kanino. Kung kakayanin, makipagtalik sa isang partner lang.
*Gumamit ng condom
*Huwag maghihiraman ng pang-ahit
*Huwag hawakan ang sugat ng ibang tao lalo na kung walang proteksyon.
*Iwasan ang pagsasalin ng dugo

Ang pinakamabisang paraan para hindi mahawaan ng HIV ay huwag makikipagtalik kung kani-kanino makunteto sa isang partner lang. Maging faithful sa mga asawa o partner natin para maka iwas sa ganitong sakit. Dahil ang panandaliang ligaya sa iba ay habang buhay naman na pagdurusa kung ikaw ay mahahawaan ng HIV o AIDS.

Deployment of Filipino workers in Poland, to be suspended by DOLE

According to the Department of Labor, more than 140 Filipino workers working in Poland terminated their contract and left their employers for breach of contract and abuse.

Philippine Labor assigns Geneva Cheryl Daytec to handle the labor conditions of Filipino workers.  Daytec is a well-accredited when it comes to labor matters.  On October 9, it was reported that 135 OFWs were unemployed in Poland, so DOLE sought to stop and suspend the sending of Filipino workers to Poland.

According to a report by Daytec, based on interviews she conducted with others who left their jobs, the lack of credibility was a greater response to abuse and breach of contract than simply a desire to seek a job for better economic opportunity.

Daytec also said that OFW's suffered in Poland are increasing during October and November due to complaints of changing contract, poor working conditions, unfair termination, and expiry of visas.  These are just a few of the aforementioned mistreated cases involving OFW's deployed by Gold Icon Recruitment and Promotion Inc.  in the Philippines and the HR Motives in Poland.

Daytec added that workers said, HR Motives would change their contract once they arrived in Poland.  The OFW's also complain that the Gold Icon collect them at least 269,000 pesos for all the paperwork that they process and they does not issue a receipt to the workers.  And then, the applicant will be sign on paper saying that the Gold Icon does not accept any payment from the workers.

In addition to suspending the deployment of workers to Poland, the Labor Attaché also recommended that the Phlippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) investigate the complaints and grievances of workers.

This year, the number of OFW's in Poland increased due to the need for Filipino workers in the Eastern European country.

Earlier in February, the Philippine Embassy in Warsaw recommended a ban on the deployment of trailer truck drivers there and around Europe.  Up to 62 Filipino truck drivers from Germany, Denmark and Poland have been rescued after complaining that they were living in a difficult and unfavorable condition in their workplaces.

Tejada encouraging OFW's in Hong Kong to tell their families the hardships they have to earn.

Philippine Consul General Raly Tejada encouraging Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in Hong Kong that if they were to return to the Philippines they would tell their family about the difficulty of working abroad just to earn money,  than grant all their requests.  And for their families to know how hard it is to earn money as an OFW.

Tejada said at a graduation ceremony of OFWs who attended the basic financial literacy courses of the CARD Hongkong Foundation that OFW's educate their fellow citizens in the Philippines especially their families.  They show them their true situation as an OFW abroad.

He added that some money doesn't grow in a tree especially in Hong Kong.  All of your movements have difficulty with those that experience sweating, bleeding, and bruising their bodies just to make money.

He says that it is very graphic but all of this is true because he feels pain everyday when there are OFW'ss who come to the consulate in such a situation.

Last Nov 17. the ceremony was held at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Wan Chai and saw more than 200 OFWs graduate and obtain their certificates.  On behalf of the Philippines Consulate General, Tejada congratulates the CARD Hongkong Foundation and all graduates of the basic finacial literacy program.

Tejada explains that financial literacy is something that a person needs to have because it provides the knowledge to make the right decision on how to use the financial system.  He is therefore grateful to CARD for continuing to provide information to OFW's in Hong Kong.

According to Tejada, there are also many OFW's who are staying abroad for 10-20 years before returning to the Philippines but some of them do not have enough savings.  There is also a plan of only 3-5 years to work overseas but it becomes 20-30 years.  He said 70% of the OFW's hard earned money goes to nothing because they have no idea how to plan financially.

There are also OFW's who borrow and pawn their passports just to get a loan.  Such situations are part of life in Hong Kong or elsewhere in the world.  So if everyone has knowledge of financial literacy it will avoid being in a bad situation.
