Congressman Bertiz was heard as shouting "Patapusin mo muna ako, you had your turn kanina." Bertiz said. The response of Congressman Bertiz irritated Villanueva which resulted in a shouting match.

"Kayo na ang umubos sa oras namin. Kami ay nakipag-meeting sa DOLE at hindi sa inyo”. Villanueva said.

Bertiz who worked as an OFW in Saudi Arabia for five years replied: “Pareho lang tayong OFW. Hindi ako naiiba sa inyo, OFW din ako”.

The claim of Bertiz made Villanueva angrier and started to accuse the lawmaker of being an enemy of the OFWs because he’s the CEO of Global Asia Alliance Consultant Inc., one if the biggest recruitment agencies in the Philippines.



“Ang hirap sayo, kinakain mo ang oras ng dayalogo namin! Agency ka rin! Eh bakit, hindi ba agency ang kalaban ng mga OFW?!” said Villanueva.

In response, Bertiz asked Villanueva if his company made something wrong in the past, saying that the migrant leader won’t be able to work in Hong Kong without the help of recruitment agencies.

“Eh ano ngayon kung agency ako?! May naging problema ba ang ahensiya ko?! Eh ano ngayon kung agency?! Nakarating ka ba ng Hong Kong kung
hindi agency?!,” Bertiz told Villanueva.

Villanueva answered Bertiz question, saying that he became an OFW in Hong Kong without being helped by recruitment agencies.
