P50,000 bounty up for info on location of helper who allegedly stole DOTr exec’s cash, jewelry
MANILA, Philippines — A P50,000 reward is being dangled for information on the whereabouts of the helper who allegedly stole cash and pieces of jewelry from an official of the Department of Transportation (DOTr).
Southmaids Agency said in a text message to INQUIRER.net on Monday that they have been coordinating with authorities regarding the incident, which DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddes Hope Libiran reported to the public via a Facebook post on Saturday, January 8.
“Our agency Southmaids Agency is now properly coordinating with Asec. Goddes Hope Libiran, [who] is one of our old clients, providing all the necessary documents including the NBI and contacts from the said helper.”
It also said that it is conducting a meeting with the Association of Licensed Private Employment Agencies of the Philippines Inc. to take the necessary actions against the helper, who Libiran called “Manag” in her social media post.
“We will also give a 50k reward for the people who can show her to us, we will not tolerate this as a licensed agency,” Southmaids Agency added.
In her Facebook post over the weekend, Libiran claimed losing cash and pieces of jewelry – which amount she did not disclose – to a helper she recently hired.
Nagpa-booster lang ako, pagbalik ko sa bahay, wala na lahat ng alahas at pera ko. Shout out sa bagong maid ko na…
She said she left the house for a COVID-19 booster shot and learned about her missing money and precious accessories when she returned home.
“Iba ka, Manang. Nagmalasakit pa akong ipagamot ka kahapon dahil sa sakit mo, tapos ganito lang gagawin mo sa pamilya ko? Ibang klase ka,” Libiran said in her Facebook post.
In a subsequent social media post, Libiran said she made public her experience to serve as a warning to other people. — Zacarian Sarao
