/ 08:15 AM November 02, 2018

Overseas Filipino worker (OFW) Jennifer Dalquez, who was released from prison in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Thursday, is now on her way home, an official of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said.

In a Twitter post early Friday, DFA Acting Assistant Secretary Elmer Cato said Dalquez has already boarded her flight home.


Dalquez was sentenced to death in 2015 after she was found guilty of killing her employer. Last year, she was acquitted without diyyah or payment of blood money. /muf
