Marietta Subong, popularly known as ‘Pokwang,’ won the deportation case she filed against her former partner, Lee O’Brian.
According to the eight-page resolution released by the Bureau of Immigration on December 12, the agency included Lee in their blacklist, and he’s not allowed to go back to the country anymore.
They explained that the American actor worked in a different company, which was different from what he declared in his work visa.
BI ordered Lee to be deported from the country immediately.
It can be recalled that Pokwang filed the said complaint after she found her former partner dating another woman.
“Undesirable aliens have no place in this country. With this case we are pursuing, we are putting a stop to the gross manipulation of Philippine Immigration laws,” Atty. Ralph Calinisan, Pokwang’s legal counsel, said,
Pokwang also said that she couldn’t move on unless Lee finally left the country.
“Hindi ganoon kadali. Kapag wala na siya sa Pilipinas, ‘yan ang super move on ko na talaga. Sa ngayon hindi pa. Ayokong i-share ang hangin ng Pilipinas sa kaniya, hindi niya deserve,” said Pokwang.
As of writing, Pokwang and Lee have yet to release their own statement following BI’s decision.
