<p style="text-align: justify;" class="MsoNormal">ABS-CBN, a local TV station in Metro Manila had reported a case of an Overseas Filipino Worker in <st1:country-region><st1:place>Saudi Arabia</st1:place></st1:country-region> who was said to be in dire need of immediate help from the concerned authorities. The said Filipina, who works as a domestic helper in a Saudi household, has been in constant treat of sexual assault. The victim became the sex slave of her male employer and his accomplices. The abusers even took video footage every time they ravished the hapless victim. Tied in both hands, the woman helplessly crushed in submission by the drooling predators. The unforgiving beastly act is detestable that a fellow domestic helper and a friend of the victim hastily went back to the <st1:country-region><st1:place>Philippines</st1:place></st1:country-region> and sought the help of some government officials through the intercession of a TV network. Evidence of the video footage was presented and was taken into account for record purposes. The Philippine government with the help of the said TV network is now trying to locate the victim in <st1:country-region><st1:place>Saudi Arabia</st1:place></st1:country-region>. But before the said TV network took notice of this case, the said sexual abuse is already spreading like fire in the internet since last July of this year.</p>
