- The Spanish national involved in a viral video arguing with a police officer is now banned in the Philippines
- The Bureau of Immigration (BI) already filed a deportation case for the “undesirable alien”
- The foreigner was accused of violating quarantine protocols and disrespecting a police officer on duty
- Foreign nationals are urged to follow the Philippine laws and respect those who enforce it
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has filed a deportation case against Spanish national Javier Salvador Parra who was involved in a scuffle with a police officer after he allegedly violated quarantine protocols in Makati City.
KAMI learned that the foreigner has failed to extend his visa and has been overstaying in the Philippines.
In a report by the CNN Philippines, BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said that foreign individuals who violate laws in the Philippines do not deserve a privilege to stay in the country.
"Now that he has been placed in our Immigration blacklist he is now perpetually banned from re-entering the Philippines for being an undesirable alien," he said.
"Foreigners who disrespect our laws and persons of authority do not deserve the privilege to stay in our country," he added.
As reported by the GMA News Online, Morente said that the case of Parra should be a warning to other foreign nationals in the country to follow the Philippine laws.
In a previous report by KAMI, the Makati police filed charges against Parra after the clash went viral on social media.
The case stemmed from the alleged violation of Parra’s housekeeper that did not wear a mask while watering the plants outside their house. The roaming officer warned her and was asked to pay a P1,000 fine. However, Parra and the police officer got caught up in a heated argument.
