The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) clarifies on Sunday on the issue that there is a current deployment ban of OFWs to South Korea as reported earlier, as she says there will be only a delay, according to local news sites.

In a statement released by Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, she clarified that the government did not impose a ban for OFW’s bound for South Korea, but rather delayed the schedule of the 55-member of OFW, which was moved from November 30 to December 7, 2010.

“There is no order to suspend temporarily the deployment of OFW to South Korea, as ‘Radyo ng Bayan’ first reported and picked up later by other news organizations,” Secretary Baldoz said.

President Noynoy Aquino only instructed Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Romulo to assess the situation in Korea and come out with a recommendation,” the secretary was quoted as saying.

“Any further decision on the deployment of OFWs to South Korea will be reviewed after the team of Ambassador Roy Cimatu, which has been ordered to go to South Korea to assess the situation there, has submitted a report,” Baldoz added.

Below is the news video from QTV11 about the clarification made by DOLE.
