MANILA—The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration on Thursday ordered the preventive suspension of four recruitment agencies, which recruited and deployed the two female workers who testified against officials of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Saudi Arabia in the Senate investigation into the “sex- for-flight” scandal.
POEA chief Hans Leo Cacdac issued the order of preventive suspension against Kozen International Inc , Azizzah International Manpower Services, Jobstar International Manpower Services, and Ideal Placement and Manpower Services, which were found to have engaged in alleged misrepresentation, contract substitution and illegal collection of placement fee, and to have committed other alleged violations of the law in the process of recruitment and deployment of OFWs Elena Beleta and Grace Victoria Sales.
