Phil. Embassy in KL seeks probe on tragic death of South Cotabato worker in Johor

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/07 June) – The Philippine Embassy in Kuala Lumpur has asked Malaysian authorities to probe the death in Johor Bahru of a Filipina worker from Polomolok in South Cotabato.

“The Embassy, through its Police Attaché, has asked Malaysian police authorities for a full investigation of the tragic incident, particularly how and why Ms Ruby Lloren was ‘trapped’ inside the burning house,” the Embassy said in a press statement sent to MindaNews.

Lloren was killed when her house was burned allegedly by a robber who entered their house on Tuesday.

Lloren’s Malaysian husband, who was reportedly not at home when the fire broke out, informed her family in Polomok in the afternoon.

The Embassy’s statement said Ms. Lloren had been living in Malaysia with her husband for seven years and was working in a fast-food chain.  “She had a nine year old daughter,” the statement said. It made no mention, however, where the child is. (MindaNews)
