Filipino Seafarer Claim Due Benefits, Aided by Phil. Consulate in Colombo

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Join me in lauding the officials of the Philippine Honorary Consulate General in Colombo in Sri Lanka for helping a Filipino Seafarer in claiming his insurance and back wages from a Sri Lankan shipping firm.

Mr. Henry Laguardia served aboard the M/V Brillante Virtuoso, where he met an accident and suffered burns.

The consulate there and, I believe his manning agency - the Status Maritime Corp- both helped Mr. Laguardia rightfully claim his due compensation and benefits from the Ceyline Shipping Limited who owned the ship.

This is a good example of the government and the manning agency helping our Filipino seafarers or OFWs in general.

Filipino seafarers are amongst the best when it comes to maritime skills. They rightfully deserve the support of the government and their agencies because of they are a big help to the economy and a source of pride for serving well in their capacity.

This DFA report was referenced for this post.
