KUWAIT CITY, June 2: Filipina Constancia Dayag, who died on May 15 at a Kuwaiti hospital under mysterious circumstances, was buried on Saturday (June 1) by her family at a public cemetery, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting inquirerdotnet. According to reports the family released white balloons as Dayag was laid to rest, while the migrant worker’s daughter Jane Dayag urged Philippine President Duterte to look into the case.
Dayag died when she was brought to the hospital, and initial police reports suggest that her injuries were inflicted during a beating and a sexual assault.
The family is waiting for the results of another autopsy conducted by the government before Dayag’s funeral. “We doubt the forensic report from Kuwait so we call on the Philippine government to speed up the filing of charges against the employer,” said Jane Dayag, who burst into tears as she was led away by relatives from the coffin. She was referring to her mother’s employer, who has been charged in a Kuwaiti court for ‘mauling’ Dayag.
