This should serve as a strong reminder to all Overseas Filipino Workers or those who are undergoing COVID-19 tests to never fake their test results because they won’t escape from authorities.
Instead of Dubai, four Filipina were sent to prison after they presented fake COVID-19 test results so they can be allowed to leave the country.
According to GMA News, the four women were held by the Bureau of Immigration because they cannot answer properly where they are set to stay and their itinerary. Later on, during the interrogation by the Bureau of Investigation (NBI) that they are set to go to Dubai to work.
Additionally, the COVID-19 test results were also faked.
“Sinabi ng diagnostic center na wala silang ni-release na ganoong test report dahil hindi naman nila in-examine ang mga ito,” says Atty. Ruel Dugayon referring to the investigation conducted by the NBI International Airport Investigation Division.
The four women refused to air their side of the story and a lawsuit was filed against them. The NBI is currently investigating where the women got the fake COVID-19 RT-PCR tests.
