President Rodrigo Duterte has slammed former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario for using his diplomatic passport for a business trip to Hong Kong.
Speaking before members of the Presidential Security Group on Wednesday, Duterte said Del Rosario “has no business using a government diplomatic passport.”
“Naggamit-gamit ng passport na hindi naman dapat. When you are no longer an employee of government,” the President added.
On June 21, Del Rosario was denied entry at the Hong Kong International Airport after traveling to the autonomous region of China using his diplomatic passport.
In May, former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales was also refused entry to Hong Kong for being a security threat.
