The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration is filing illegal recruitment cases against the owner and staff of an establishment found to have been recruiting overseas Filipino workers without a valid license or authority from the government.
Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac identified the recruitment agency as Jomhadz International Corporation, and its alleged owner, a certain Joan Sigua.
Operatives of the POEA Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch and Anti-Transnational Crime Unit (ATCU) of the CIDG closed down last week its main office located at 2nd Floor, Claveria Building, Circumferencial Road, Barangay Dalig, Antipolo City and its satellite office at 1660 Neptuno St., Paco, Manila.
The POEA prosecution team is preparing illegal recruitment charges against Sigua and her staff identified as Jefferson S. Flores, Charton Villanueva, Renalyn P. Cuevas, Renato V. Padilla, and Jason P. Cabus.
The CIDG-ATCU seized from the office employment documents of applicants, including passports, for inventory and as documentary evidence.
Cacdac advised applicants of Johmadz International to proceed to the POEA Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch for filing of complaints against the recruiters.
