PHL official in Dubai assures repatriation of ‘missing’ OFWs’ remains

The Philippine Consulate General in Dubai on Monday said it is exhausting all means to locate and repatriate to the country the body of overseas Filipino worker Febie Layug Guzman.
"We assure the Guzman family that we are closely coordinating with the concerned local authorities and are pursuing all avenues of cooperation, including all legal and diplomatic means, to shed light on this incident and repatriate the remains of Guzman to her family in the Philippines at the soonest possible time," Paul Raymund Cortes, the Philippines consul general in Dubai, said in a statement.
Cortes' office also extended "its deepest sympathies" to Guzman's family.
Guzman died after suffering a stroke in November 2016 in Dubai. Her body had been supposedly flown back to the Philippines.
The OFW's husband, Eduardo Guzman, however complained that they received an Indonesian woman's body.
Guzman's family fears that her body could have been mistakenly flown to Indonesia instead of her hometown in Pampanga province.
"Anong nangyari at nasan ang asawa ko? Papano siya kung nag-swap sila?" Guzman's husband said. —ALG, GMA News
