I am Melissa Sta. Maria, an incoming fourth year law student of Ateneo Law School. I would just like to inquire about the 24/7 command center for OFWs. I was wondering if you have any statistics about the cases reported or filed by OFWs who are migrant domestic workers against their employers. This will help me in my thesis about state responsibility for slavery of migrant domestic workers. Thank you.
