PRESS RELEASE 2021 April 05

BI warns aliens disregarding laws during quarantine period may be deported MANILA, Philippines—Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente warned aliens that violating rules set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) may cause filing of deportation charges against them. According to Morente, foreign nationals are expected to follow Philippine laws, and blatant disregard of rules and persons of authority may be reason for their deportation. It can be recalled that last year, a Spanish national was blacklisted for allegedly violating the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) policies and for hurling expletives to Makati police. Morente reiterated that aliens who disrespect persons of authority may be considered undesirable aliens. “Foreign nationals who disrespect symbols of our country and persons of authority are not welcome in the Philippines,” he warned. Immigration Intelligence Chief Fortunato Manahan Jr. likewise added that they have received reports that some foreign executives of companies in the Philippines violate IATF protocols in their workplaces. “We will be conducting an investigation on these reports, and if found with merit, will file immigration cases against aliens involved,” he stated. He added that immigration action against erring aliens is separate from criminal cases that may be filed against them by relevant authorities.

Nothing really new here. Foreigners have always been required to follow Philippine law and regulations or face deportation...

It sounds like they have some very specific transgressors in mind here. Reads to me more like a targeted warning shot across the bow and not just a general reminder to behave.

Hopefully those suspected get the message before the BI comes a knockin.

Kind of like the drunk Spanish dude and the Senior Master Sergeant (probably never leaves the office unless it’s serious) who just happen to be cruising the subdivision.
