MANILA – Saudi Arabia has executed a Filipina household worker found guilty of murder, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Thursday. Saudi authorities carried out the sentence against the 39-year-old Filipina last Tuesday, said DFA Assistant Secretary Elmer Cato. “Gusto naming makiramay sa mga kaanak ng ating kababayan na household service worker sa Saudi Arabia na na-execute noong Tuesday after she was found guilty of murder,” he told radio DZMM. (We want to condole with the relatives of our compatriot, a household worker in Saudi Arabia who was executed on Tuesday.) The Saudi Supreme Judicial Council classified the Filipina’s case as one in which blood money does not apply under Shariah law, he added in a statement. The Embassy provided her with a lawyer to assist her in all stages of her trial, sent representatives to visit her, and provided her family in the Philippines with regular updates about her case, said Cato. The Filipina’s relatives were notified of her death Wednesday, he said. Cato declined to identify the overseas worker, as requested by her family. More details to follow.
