The statement of Foreign Affairs Secretary with regards to the case of Jeanelyn Villavende, the OFW who lost her life in the hands of her employers, drew “dismay and condemnation” within the Kuwaiti government.
“Blood for blood” – these were the words of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. that draw ire reaction from the Kuwait government.
According to the Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the remarks of Locsin “contained an unacceptable transgression against jurisdictions of Kuwaiti security and judicial authorities,” and “unusual approach in dealing with countries.”

“It runs counter to the simplest rules of international relations,” says a state-run Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
“The Filipino secretary’s remark represents an attempt to influence the ongoing investigations. Kuwait is known for its commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all who live on its soil and punishing law violators in accordance with the provisions of the country’s laws and in a manner that guarantees the rule of law and justice for all,” it added.
