Reporter's Notebook 4th Anniversary Special

Almost everywhere in the country, stories of women falling victim to sex trafficking is becoming more and more common. These Filipinas are usually promised decent employment but end up entangled in the flesh trade.

Be it within or outside the country, the problem seems to worsen, earning the Philippines the infamous reputation of being one of the primary sources of trafficked women in the world.

For its fourth anniversary special, Reporter's Notebook will trace the roots of what has become an industry of exporting and exploiting Filipinas around Asia. The report will follow the trail that these trafficked Filipinas take.

In Southern Philippines lies Zamboanga City, one of the most common exit points used to traffic Filipinas out of the country. From this province Maki Pulido follows the route that illegally recruited Filipinas take to go to Malaysia where she investigates the situation of Filipino women that have fallen victim to this crime. They will uncover the real condition of trafficked Filipinas in three areas where such cases are reportedly common: Sandakan, Kota Kinabalu, and Labuan.

Meanwhile, from NAIA in Manila, Jiggy Manicad starts his journey to Hong Kong, one of the most popular destinations of Filipina OFWs. He listens to their bitter experiences and follows their story all the way to Macau, where Filipinas are said to escape when their visas in Hong Kong expire.

Don't miss "Pinays for Export: The Asian Sex Trafficking Trail" this Tuesday, August 5, after Saksi.

Seems our countries have many points in common. Unfortunatelly. Maybe it's for years of bad propaganda that the women are so easy to convinct to do these things.
