MANILA, Philippines – The pregnant overseas Filipino worker (OFW) who was raped by 3 Saudi nationals last week has given birth to a baby girl.
More good news came for "Salley" (not her real name) when her 3 rapists were caught
Salley was scheduled to identify the 3 suspects last Wednesday, but had to be rushed to the hospital early in the morning to give birth.
Salley had a healthy, 3.6-pound baby girl.
The OFW said that she was thankful that her daughter was not affected by the rape that she endured.
"Healthy naman po siya ngayon, normal," Salley said of her daughter.
Although she is still weak, Salley will go straight to the police precinct once she gets out of the hospital in order to identify the rapists.
The Philippine Embassy has confirmed that the 3 suspects, all Saudi nationals, are currently in jail at Dammam.
But the suspects are not yet being named as Salley has yet to positively identify them.
Salley will also be given an attorney to ensure that she receives justice.
"Tinatanong nila ako kung itutuloy ko ang kaso, sabi ko, opo. Pinapirma po nila ako kanina," Salley said.
The medical results that may tie the suspects to the rape have not yet been released.
Meanwhile, many Filipinos in the Middle East have offered their support and sympathies for Salley, with some offering financial help."Masaya kami ngayon at nakapanganak siya ng maayos, at healthy ang bata. Maraming salamat sa mga Pilipinong tumulong sa kanya," community leader Aiza Monares said.
