The last batch of Filipino workers who availed of Kuwait's amnesty program has arrived in the Philippines on Monday morning, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). The two enter a black Jeep carrying diplomatic license plates and drive off.

That came after the body of Joanna Demafelis, a maid from the Philippines, was found stuffed into a freezer in Kuwait City.

Prior to the ban, Kuwait was a top destination for Filipino workers, with around 240,000 working there in 2016.

Duterte in January complained that cases of abuse reported by Filipina domestic workers "always" seem to be coming from Kuwait. Authorities say Assaf faces a possible death sentence.

"With all due respect to my counterparts in the Kuwait Parliament, I believe their call for the expulsion of Villa is an unreasonable reaction to the desperate circumstances on-the-ground", he said. Kuwaiti authorities summoned Ambassador Villa over his comments.

The DFA said 4,993 overstaying Filipinos have been reunited with their families in the Philippines since the start of the government's repatriation program for Kuwait on February 11.

"That misunderstanding will be resolved", Mr Cayetano told a Filipino newspaper, Philstar.

Kuwaiti police arrested two Filipinos for allegedly convincing housemaids to run away from their employers' homes as the Philippines' ambassador faced questions for comments about his embassy's work in aiding abused workers, authorities said Sunday.

More than 260,000 Filipinos work in Kuwait, many of them as housemaids. But many Kuwaiti employers seize their phones and passports.

The Philippines embassy has a 24-hour hotline to receive reports of abuse.
