Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Wednesday (May 27) warned officials of local government units (LGUs) of administrative and criminal charges for refusing to accept any of the 24,000 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who already underwent quarantine in Metro Manila.

“The President has already given instructions to all LGUs to accept the returning 24,000 OFWs to their hometowns,” he said.

“If LGU officials continue to defy this directive, they may be held administratively and criminally liable for violations of the Bayanihan Act,” he added.

President Rodrigo Duterte last Monday (May 25) ordered to have the 24,000 to return their their respective home towns.

With this, Duterte warned LGUs not to stop these OFWs from returning homes after having receiving reports that there are some LGUs who have been refusing returning OFWs.

“As SOJ, I have already given instructions to the National Prosecution Service to give priority to the investigation of any and all cases related to the implementation of the Bayanihan Act and the various measures taken by the government pursuant thereto,” Guevarra also assured.
