Filipina Nurse was Arrested and Detained by Vice Police in Saudi Arabia for Immorality Charges : Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

Filipina Nurse was Arrested and Detained by Vice Police in Saudi Arabia for Immorality Charges

· Filed Under In the news, Work in Middle East 

A few days ago, a female Filipino nurse who was caught by The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice having dinner with a Westener male colleague.

Commission members arrested Abigail Valdez, a nurse who works at the Riyadh Military Hospital, on charges of “immorality.” Valdez is said to be being held at Al-Malaz Prison.

The Filipina nurse was immediately taken to jail and has not been heard from since and even the Philippine Embassy has not been allowed to have any contact with her.

Philippine Ambassador Antonio P. Villamor told reporters that he had sent officials from the embassy’s Assistance to Nationals Section (ANS) to the prison. The embassy was denied access, acccording to Vice Consul Gerardo P. Abiog, who is in charge of ANS.

Mixing of sexes in public places is against Saudi law. Unrelated men and women caught dining at a restaurant would normally be sentenced to four months in jail and 100 lashes. The same punishment applies to a man and a woman caught in a state of seclusion (khulwa).

Valdez’s male colleague says he was “dragged out of the restaurant by his belt with his feet in shackles” at the time of their arrest. The man said he was separated from the Filipina nurse once they reached the commission’s center. “She sent me a text message from her phone saying she was being taken to Al-Malaz Prison and that she was freaking out. That was the last I heard from her,” he said.

It’s a very shocking news to all Filipino Nurses in the middle east.  Shocking but true.  Will give you new updates as they arrive.
