23 March 2015 – The Philippine Embassy in Tripoli reported that one hundred sixty-five (165) Filipinos are scheduled to be repatriated to the Philippines within the week.  The first batch composed of thirty-nine (39) Filipinos arrives today at 3:10 p.m. on board flight QR926 in NAIA Terminal 1. Five (5) more repatriates will also arrive on March 24 at 12:10 p.m. via flight PR311 in Terminal 2. These arrivals will bring the total number of Filipino repatriates from Libya to 4,414 since May 2014.

The Embassy team led by Charge d'Affaires Adel Cruz facilitated the repatriation of the OFWs and personally accompanied them out of Libya and into Tunisia where they would take their flight to Manila.

Embassy representatives in Tripoli and Tunisia provided for the repatriates’ accommodations and basic necessities and extended consular and airport assistance before they left for Manila on March 22.

The Embassy team is currently finalizing the flight details of the other batches of Filipino repatriates.

More Filipinos are expected to sign up for mandatory repatriation after Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F. del Rosario made the renewed call to remaining Filipinos in Libya to return home during his visit to Tunisia from March 13 to 14.

Meanwhile, some 4,000 Filipinos still remain in Libya despite repeated calls from the Embassy to join the repatriation operations. The DFA and the Embassy in Tripoli urge our remaining kababayans in Libya to avail themselves of the mandatory repatriation offer as soon as possible, before it becomes more difficult to repatriate them due to the continued deterioration of the security in the country.

The DFA also appeals to the next-of-kin of the remaining Filipinos in Libya to encourage them to return home to the Philippines. END
