ROXAS CITY, Capiz – A native of this city and her Korean partner were accused of illegal recruitment by 250 jobseekers who sought police assistance here recently.

The complainants claimed that Ramilyn Andrade of Brgy. Bolo here and her alleged Korean partner Kim Tayyong are nowhere to be found after promising to send them to South Korea to work in factories in exchange for placement fees.

Some of the complainants, who came from Bacolod City, Iloilo City and Kalibo in Aklan, sought the help of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group in Capiz.

According to them, LG Santon Company failed to bring them to Korea despite paying their placement fee, terminal fee and insurance.

It was learned that each jobseeker paid P75,000 to Andrade and Tayyong.

According to Police Master Sergeant Ramil Arcangeles, public information officer of Roxas City PNP, Andrade promised them jobs in South Korea with a monthly salary of P130, 000.
