Jakatia Pawa was an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) who was executed by hanging in Kuwait.

As reported by the Inquirer, Pawa was sentenced to death for allegedly stabbing to death the 22-year-old daughter of her employer while asleep in May 2007.

Noting that one of the victim's family members could have committed the crime due to a romantic affair with a neighbor, Pawa's camp has firmly denied the accusations.

According to Rappler, the DNA found on the kitchen knife used in the murder scene "did not match Jakatia's DNA."

Meanwhile, in a media gathering on Wednesday, DFA assistant secretary Charles Jose said that they have tried several ways to negotiate with Kuwait.

“We have exerted different efforts through the embassy and political departments. We respect the decision of the justice system of Kuwait,” Jose told the press.

The victim's relatives refused the blood money offered by Pawa's family and pushed through with the execution.

The Filipino domestic helper's remains might be buried in Kuwait as part of Islamic rules.
