The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has shut a recruitment agency found to be operating without a valid licence or authority.

Administrator Hans Leo J Cacdac said that the Helper-In Employment Centre in Manila has been recruiting domestic workers for Hong Kong and forwarding applicants’ papers to SBEE International, a POEA-licensed agency, for processing.

The POEA alleges Helper-In Employment Centre is owned by Lorna De Dios, a vice president of SBEE International.

Cacdac said the POEA’s prosecution division is filing illegal recruitment cases against De Dios, five Helper-In employees and SBEE International.
