Brasilia: Philippine ambassador fired for torturing domestic worker
According to the international news agency, the female ambassador was fired after departmental action was taken after receiving footage of violence against a housemaid at the official residence of former Philippine ambassador to Brazil Mariko Mauro.
Last year, Globe News Channel viralized CCTV footage of the Philippine ambassador to Brazil, Mariko Mauro, in which a woman could be seen torturing the ambassador’s housemaid.
The Philippine ambassador was recalled from Brazil after the video went viral and a departmental investigation was launched and he has now been removed from office.
The Philippine president fired the female ambassador, saying “the law is equal for all and everyone must abide by the law and the code of conduct.
