Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Monday (April 16) stressed the government has the right expel any unwanted foreigners.
Guevarra explained the government’s policy after Party of European Socialist (PES) secretary-generalc was prevented from entering the Philippines on Sunday.
“It is unlawful for aliens staying in our country to engage in partisan political activities, and the government has the right to refuse entry to those who have committed these illegal acts in the past,” he said.
Filibeck, who has been in the country last October 2017, has been a vocal critic of President Rodrigo Duterte’s anti-illegal drugs war.
He arrived last Sunday and was supposed to attend a two-day party congress of the Akbayan Party-list, a sister party of the PES.
