Government asks Filipinos to leave in Libya

Government asks Filipinos to leave in Libya - The Philippine government will exert last ditch efforts to persuade the remaining Filipinos in Libya to go home, a senior official said Friday. Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said the government "will have to do a little convincing" to repatriate the Filipinos who chose to remain in Libya.

"But we will have to let them know what the situation is, and what the dangers are" in continuing to stay in Libya, Valted said at a briefing.

There are 26,000 Filipinos working and living in Libya. Most of them chose to get repatriated following the increased tension in the Middle Easter country. About 2,000 Filipinos, however, chose to stay behind.

Valte added that the Philippine government is hoping that no Filipinos would be harmed after Libya was declared a no fly-zone due to escalating political tensions.
