Filed under: News |

The Philippines Overseas Employment Administration has shut down a recruitment agency that was found to be enlisting Filipino workers for overseas employment without proper authority, reports the Philippine Information Agency.

Administration operatives, along with other offices, shut down the office of LDQ Manpower to prevent them from further unlawfully recruiting workers for abroad. Applicants of LDQ Manpower complained that they were promised employment in Japan but were required to pay up to PHP 70,000 (USD 1,140) in fees. The agency allegedly sent the workers to Japan using tourist visas through the escort system at the international airports.
