Jennifer Dalquez – Migrant Worker Sentenced to Death by U.A.E Court

Jennifer Dalquez is a Filipina migrant worker who was sentenced to death by the UAE Court in 2015. A petition page was started to help save Jennifer. We ask that you support the campaign by signing the petition in Change.org. As an overview of the case we are including an excerpt below:

On the 14th of December, 2014, Jennifer Dalquez was confronted by her Emirati employer who attempted to rape her at knife point. Jennifer desperately fought back to save her life. She managed to turn the knife back on to her assailant during the struggle . As a consequence of Jennifer’s actions, her assailant was fatally wounded. Jennifer adamantly maintains her actions were in self defence. Her priority during the course of this incident was to save her life first and foremost.

In May 2015, Jennifer was convicted of murdering her Emirati employer by the Al Ain Criminal Court and subsequently sentenced to death for killing her abusive employer despite her plea of self-defence.

Visit the petition page to know more of Jennifer’s story and to sign your name in support of the campaign to save her life — Save Jennifer Dalquez – Migrant Worker Sentenced to Death by U.A.E Court  

Do share her story to family and friends.
