The settlement of the unpaid salaries of more than 10,000 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who lost their jobs after several companies declared bankruptcy in Saudi Arabia will be happening in “just a matter of time," according to the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) Secretary Susan Ople,

Ople made the comment on Tuesday, the day following President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr.'s second State of the Nation Address (SONA), in which he highlighted the processing of unpaid claims totaling almost 2 billion riyals.

“His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman committed his government's settlement of claims owed to Filipino construction workers dating back to 2015 to 2016," the secretary stated.

"As far as the DMW is concerned, based on our talks with the Ministry of Human Resource and Social Development the resolution of claims is just a matter of time,” Ople added.

She noted the need to defer to and respect the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's own internal processes in handling such claims.
