The Philippine Ambassador to New Zealand, Jesus ‘Gary’ S. Domingo, who has just completed about ten months in this country, is known for his 'hands-on approach in dealing with issues'. In recent months the Philippine Embassy in New Zealand, the NZ Police, the Inland Revenue Department, Immigration NZ, Education NZ, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Commerce Commission, NGOs, Unionists, community groups and even mainstream media outlets have been working in concert to stem the tide of rampant OFW exploitation that has left heaps of Filipinos out of pocket and often in dire straits. “Migrant exploitation is a multifaceted and complex issue that requires a multifaceted and coordinated response,” said Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner Dr. Jackie Blue. “We are keen to see that these new measures (announced by the Minister of Immigration) are just the start of actions aimed at addressing what is a significant problem - particularly in our dairy, horticultural, hospitality and international education industries.” ‘Cracking down on OFW exploiters’ is an exclusive 3-part investigation by FMN. pg02 pg13 PAL interclub fever!

Armed only with a steamer, a printed T-shirt and a conviction.” - JJ Atencio pg05 Behind bars: Senator Leila de Lima arrested in Manila A Philippines senator and staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs has been arrested. pg04
