Gabriela to Duterte: Include UAE in Middle East trip, save OFW Dalquez from death row
The Gabriela party-list on Monday urged President Rodrigo Duterte include United Arab Emirates in his official itinerary for his week-long Middle East visit to save Filipina worker Jennifer Dalquez from the death row.
"As President Duterte embarks on his Middle East trip today, we urge him to exhaust all measures to save OFW (overseas Filipino worker) Jennifer Dalquez from the death row in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)," the women's group said in a statement.
"We hope that the President will have time to visit UAE and personally seek dialogue with authorities there, as UAE is not on his official itinerary," it added.
Duterte is scheduled to leave the country for his Middle East trip in the afternoon.
