Family seeks justice for Filipino worker found in freezer in Kuwait

Published: Updated:

The family of Joanna Daniela Demafelis, a Filipino worker whose body was found in a freezer in Kuwait, is demanding justice.

“I am appealing for government's help in seeking justice for my daughter's death," the victim's mother Eva Demafelis was quoted as saying by ABS-CBN News.

Demafelis travelled to Kuwait in 2014 to support her family and she last spoke to them between 2016 and 2017.

“Kuwaiti authorities have yet to determine when Demafelis died. Initial investigation found signs that she may have been tortured and strangled,” the news site report.

Family members are seeking help from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.

Demafelis was described by her family as selfless and kind.
