DEPARTMENT of Migrant Workers (DMW) Secretary Susan Ople reached out and spoke with the family members of 35-year-old Kuwait-based OFW (overseas Filipino worker), Jullebee Ranara, whose death was reported over Kuwait media on Sunday evening.

Ople expressed the department’s and her personal condolences to Ranara’s family and informed them that the DMW will provide them with all the “necessary support they need at this time of grief.”

At this moment, the DMW is waiting for the official report on the incident from Kuwaiti authorities.

The DMW said it is “closely monitoring” developments of the case alongside the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in working with Kuwaiti authorities.

Kuwait media reported Ranara’s burned remains were found in the desert late Sunday evening (Manila time).

Ople said she and the entire DMW condemned the “heinous crime” and urged the Kuwaiti government to work on the early resolution of the case and its perpetrators brought to justice.
