Repatriation of Libya Filipinos Continues: 24 Return OFWs Home

Twenty-four Filipino workers from Libya has been repatriated by the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli on March 6, a statement yesterday from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said.

The efforts are in connection with the government’s mandatory repatriation program in response to the still “precarious peace and order situation” in Libya.

The government repeated its appeals to Filipinos still in Libya — an estimated 2,940 of them — to avail of the mandatory repatriation program.
