American actor Lee O’Brian has filed a counter-affidavit to the deportation case filed by Pokwang against him.
On June 26, 2023, Lee went to the Bureau of Immigration (BI) office to oppose the request of his former partner to force him to leave the Philippines.
It can be remembered that Pokwang claimed that Lee was working in the Philippines even without proper documents and Visa.
However, Lee urged BI and the Philippine government to become fair in judging the case, considering Pokwang’s popularity and influence in the country.
“Given the fact that the complainant is very well-known, widely known throughout this county and very, very influential I am basically asking and pleading with the Philippine government and the Bureau of Immigration to look at my case, my deportation case fairly and with justice, according to the merits of the case and whatever I filed here I would plead with them to look at it justly,” Lee said.
Despite the charges filed by Pokwang against him, Lee said that his respect for his former partner remains.
He also thanked the fans for supporting him.
