- Actor Tony Labrusca is about to face a deportation case filed by the Bureau of Immigration
- This was after a controversy involving Labrusca happened in NAIA
- Labrusca was accused of disrespecting NAIA officers before
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) is pushing through with the deportation case filed against actor Tony Labrusca after the controversial incident in the airport.
KAMI learned from the Philippine News Agency that the Intelligence Division of BI recommended to the Legal Division to file a deportation case.
“The (Intelligence Division) recommended to Legal (Division) the filing of deportation case against Labrusca for working without permit I think,” BI Deputy Commissioner Tomas Javier said.
However, there is no charge sheet yet against Labrusca but the deportation case is being reviewed by BI’s Legal Division.
Labrusca is discovered to file a petition for recognition as a Filipino citizen. However, a hearing with the BI Board of Special Inquiry (BSI) is needed.
“I was informed that Tony Labrusca also filed a petition for recognition as a Filipino citizen, considering that both his parents are Filipinos,” Javier said.
“We would process it, may hearing pa ‘yan (there will be a hearing) with our BSI, then it (BSI) would recommend to the Department of Justice for confirmation if they find sufficient basis for the granting of recognition,” the Deputy Commissioner added.
Labrusca is an actor and son of actor Boom Labrusca and model Angel Jones.
In a previous report by KAMI, Labrusca was allegedly involved in a controversial argument with an immigration officer in Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). The actor took it to social media and said that the immigration just gave him 30 days here in the country. The actor’s behaviour drew flak to the netizens and called him out about this.
