Overseas Filipino domestic workers don’t only need to prepare themselves for the physical abuse that their employer may do to them, but also need to be watchful on their male employer’s behavior. And in this case, a male employer was caught in the act giving money to Pinay domestic help to bribe her in doing malicious things to her.
In a video posted on Pinoy Viral Facebook page, a male employer forbiddingly went inside the Pinay worker’s room wanting to do malicious things to her. The Pinay worker is identified as Rovilyn Faith Metuda from Brgy. Bosque Linamon Lanao Del Norte, working as a domestic helper in Saudi Arabia.
In the video, Metuda tries many times to talk her male employer out of the room a couple of times but the male employer refuses and even tries to touch her which is strictly prohibited in Saudi Arabia.
Despite her reasoning to make her male employer go out of her room, the employer refused to listen and told her to not report his deeds to her female employer.
“Don’t tell madam, tell her if I do it again,” said the employer.
He even gives money to Metuda in which she asks,
“Why you give me money?”
“For bataga,” the employer replied.
Bataga means load on credit phone. Some of the male employers used this way, bribe their workers to have a permit to do whatever they wanted to do with them.
The argument continued
Metuda and male employer argued some more. It seems like the employer is asking something from Metuda which Metuda doesn’t and led her to threatens his male employer to kill him.
“ana sawey mot inti,” Metuda bravely told his employer, which means
“I will kill you, baba.”
The employer only started to go out of her room when she showed the knife she hid under her bedsheet.
