“I want their executioner to cut off the heads of those who are responsible for the death of the Filipina,” Duterte said in a Monday night press briefing in Malacañang.
Duterte said he wanted to visit Kuwait and ask its government to give those responsible for the domestic worker’s death the “maximum” penalty.
Villavende’s killers are her employers, a married couple. They are now detained at a high crime facility in Kuwait and are facing murder charges.
Duterte wants executioner to ‘cut off heads’ of Kuwait OFW killers
An embalming certificate from the Kuwait government has confirmed that Villavende, who was reportedly beaten “black and blue,” died of “acute failure of heart and respiration” as a result of shock and multiple injuries in the vascular, nervous system.
However, NBI’s separate autopsy revealed that Villavende’s brain, heart, and some internal organs were missing. She also suffered multiple, severe traumatic injuries, including genitalia injuries, which indicated that she was sexually abused.
As a result, the Philippine government imposed a total deployment ban of OFWs to Kuwait early this year.
The ban has already been lifted.
