MELBOURNE, Australia (The Adobo Chronicles, Sydney Bureau) – Upon her arrival at Melbourne Airport, Sister Patricia Fox, the Australian nun deported for violating the terms of her travel visa to the Philippines, decried what she called the ‘reign of terror’ under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.
But minutes later, she totally changed her tune and blamed incarcerated Senator Leila De Lima for her being kicked out of the country.
It appears now that the basis for Fox’s deportation was an administrative order approved by De Lima who was then Secretary of Justice under President NoyNoy Aquino’s administration.
”I apologize to the Duterte government for barking at the wrong tree. Nobody told me that the order prohibiting foreign nationals from participating in political activity was from the previous administration,” Fox told reporters.
”All I can say is ‘Mea Culpa,’ she added.
Well, we’re almost sure that Santo Rodrigo Duterte will forgive her.
