2 face 3 more cases of illegal recruitment

THE NATIONAL Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has filed complaints for illegal recruitment before the City Prosecution Office against two persons for allegedly promising jobs abroad.

Sued for violating the The Migrant Workers and Overseas Workers Act of 1995 and Article 315 of the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines were Gerlie Bagsarsa Decamura of Panabo City and Luialhato Bueno of Capas, Tarlac.

The complaints were filed by Wynclied Penpillo, Sheewil Empinado, and Cheeryl Salinas.

Another group of individuals also filed similar complaints against the two and Charina Tolentino, Christina Tolentino, and Mayumi Chiu Yupangco.

The NBI regional office filed the complaints after the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration Regional Center for Mindanao revealed that the suspects were not licensed or authorized by the administration to recruit workers for overseas employment.

Based on the NBI investigation, Decamura was allegedly recruiting workers for a dairy farm in Japan and that applicants would be directly hired and would no longer be required to study Niponggo.

The investigation also showed that Decamura required the complainants to submit their documents to them and to deposit in Bueno’s name P15,000 for each of them as processing fee for their applications so these could be prioritized.

The complainants added that Demura failed on her promise that they would know whether they were accepted.
