MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines recalled its ambassador in Brazil over supposed maltreatment of their personnel, the country’s top diplomat said Monday.

“The Philippine Ambassador to Brazil has been recalled effective immediately to explain the maltreatment of her service staff,” Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. said in a tweet.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has yet to release more details on the matter.
