Jim Paredes Mistakenly Deported

0DC58C4D-9375-4F76-AA5A-EFF2762DA910MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) –Subject to fact-checking by Rappler and Vera Files – Anti-Duterte retired entertainer Jim Paredes was deported back to Australia at dawn this morning.  But it was all in error.

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested Paredes and put him on the first available flight from NAIA to Sydney.

Apparently, overly-eager BI employees mistook Paredes as the Australian who was reported to be engaged in anti-government activities in violation of the Philippine Constitution. Foreign citizens are expressly prohibited to engage in such activities while in the country. Paredes holds Australian citizenship.

The real Australian concerned in the report turned out to be a 71-year-old nun, Sister Patricia Fox.

As he was being escorted to his plane, Paredes kept on shouting, “Look at me, look at me. Do I look like a 71-year-old nun?”
