The BI reviewed Subong's complaint and found merit in it, subsequently ordering O’Brian's deportation in December for breaching the conditions of his stay in the Philippines. Despite filing a motion for reconsideration, O’Brian's appeal was denied. BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco confirmed that O’Brian was deported on the evening of April 8, boarding a Philippine Airlines flight to San Francisco. The BI ensured that there were no pending local cases against him before executing the deportation. As a consequence of his deportation, O’Brian has been included in the BI’s blacklist, prohibiting any future attempts to re-enter the Philippines.
