MANILA, Philippines — Philippine Labor Attaché in Taiwan Fidel Macauyag “violated all norms of decency” when he requested the deportation of a Filipino migrant worker who posted anti-Duterte sentiments on social media, Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon said Saturday.

“Unang-una, ako ay dating labor secretary, ang tungkulin lang ng labor attaché ay iisa: para proteksyunan ang ating mga kababayan sa ibang dagat,” he told DWIZ when asked about Macauyag’s actions against the Filipina, who works as a caregiver in Taiwan.

(First, I was a former Labor Secretary, the role of a labor attaché is this: to protect our citizens overseas.)

“Sa akin (For me), this labor attaché in Taiwan violated all norms of decency ng sinabi niyang i-deport itong kababayan natin (when he said this fellow Filipino of ours must be deported),” he added.
