President Rodrigo Duterte is livid at Kuwait for maltreating abroad Filipino employees (OFWs) regardless of the Philippines’ help throughout Iraq’s menace of invading its Center Jap neighbor.

In a press convention in Davao Metropolis Friday (February 9), Duterte reminded Kuwait of the sacrifice that Filipinos made years in the past.

“Because of our desire to protect you Kuwait in the future, from Iraq, because Iraq was bent on getting you as part of their territory, we, at that time, during the invasion, considering you and the danger of weapons of mass destruction and verily at the behest of the American government, we were deployed in the Middle East using your country and you saw the workers, the doctors, and the nurses, and other medical personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines,” he mentioned.

Duterte mentioned Filipinos had been “enthusiastic” about defending Kuwait, solely for OFWs working there to be abused.

“We did not fail you. O how come my countrymen are now suffering brutality, cruelty, and death? And you seem to be oblivious about it,” he mentioned.

Duterte then confirmed images of badly injured OFWs who had been abused by their Kuwaiti employers. He mentioned he can’t tolerate their maltreatment.

“Tingnan mo. Parang pinirito, nilitson. Is there something wrong with your culture? Is there something wrong with the values? P***** i** plinantsa ‘yung katawan,” he mentioned.
