Taiwan has thumbed down the Philippines’ request to deport a Filipino worker critical of President Rodrigo Duterte, saying such a move should be the subject of consultations first.

Taiwan News, an English language news site, quoted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) as saying that foreign workers enjoy “citizen treatment” and cannot be easily deported.

“Taiwan is a sovereign, independent country where foreign workers enjoy ‘citizen treatment,’ and their rights and interests are protected by relevant laws and regulations, including freedom of speech, which should be respected by governments of all countries,” MOFA said, accordingg to the news site.

“No person or institution, in this case, has the right to pressure her, her employer, or broker, nor shall she be deported without consultations held between both governments,” it added.

The Department of Labor and Employment recently announced it moved for the deportation of caregiver Elanel Egot Ordidor for “posting nasty and malevolent materials” against Duterte on Facebook.

DOLE said Ordidor is liable for cyber libel over her online posts.
