OFW in love with 'predator' Kim?

OFW in love with 'predator' Kim? | Overseas Filipino Workers | Scoop.it
'This man has a a habit of making girlfriends out of distressed OFWs,' Bello says, referring to 'Predator One'
Pinoy Connection's insight:

ULAT PINOY

 

Ayon sa isang babaing OFW, nainlab daw siya dito kay Kim.Yun nga lamang at may habit daw itong si Kim na gawing girlfriend ang mga 'distressed OFWs'. Sa tingin nyo mga kababayan, may ginawa bang mali itong si Kim dahil sa "intimate act" sa poolside ng shelter ng embassy?

 

"Correcting earlier media reports —including Rappler's — Bello said Guro is not engaged in the alleged "sex-for-flight" scheme. What he did wrong was he violated the code of conduct for employees assigned to diplomatic posts, when he was caught in January in an "intimate act" with an overseas worker at the poolside of the embassy shelter.

Diplomatic rules prohibit employees from fraternizing with distressed OFWs, according to Bello."
