HONG KONG, China (The Adobo Chronicles, Hong Kong Bureau) – Now it can be told.
Hong Kong’s Immigration just revealed the real reason ex-Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Del Rosario was denied entry and deported back to the Philippines. He presented a fake Chinese passport, not a Philippine diplomatic passport as he earlier claimed.
”It was apparent Del Rosario wanted to evade scrutiny by Immigration authorities after he and ex-Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales filed a complaint before the International Criminal Court against Chinese President Xi Jinping for alleged crimes against humanity,” a Chinese official told The Adobo Chronicles.
(Morales was also held and questioned when she tried to enter Hong Kong weeks ago.)
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Two former high-ranking officials of the Philippines — ex-Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales and ex-Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Del Rosario — were all but denied entry into Hong Kong recently, supposedly because of the complaint they filed before the International Criminal Court against Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Jinping was accused of crimes against humanity for China’s activities in disputed territory in the South China Sea.
Now, Vice President Leni Robredo says she will travel to Hong Kong this week on a personal business (shopping) to test HK’s Immigration policy against those who publicly criticize the Chinese government.
Robredo has slammed the ‘sinking’ of a Philippine fishing boat by a Chinese vessel in the West Philippine Sea and has called for a trial of the Chinese crew in the Philippines and under Philippine law.
The Office of the Vice President refused to confirm if Robredo will be using a diplomatic or regular Philippine passport.
HONG KONG, China (The Adobo Chronicles, Hong Kong Bureau) – First, it was former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales who was held by Chinese Immigration authorities as she tried to enter Hong Kong. Then, former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del Rosario suffered the same fate.
The two ex-Philippine officials under the NoyNoy Aquino administration co-signed a complaint against Chinese President Xi Jinping before the International Criminal Court (ICC) for alleged crimes against humanity in connection with China’s activities to gain control over most of the South China Sea.
Now, The Adobo Chronicles has learned that Senator Risa Hontiveros is being held by Immigration authorities as she arrived in Macau for a much-needed vacation.
A Macau Immigration official said Hontiveros was stopped from entering the city, which, like Hong Kong , is part of China, for being a persona non grata. The charge arose from the Opposition Senator’s public statement relating to the maritime incident in the West Philippine Sea between a Philippine fishing boat and a Chinese vessel.
In her statement, she criticized a planned joint investigation of the incident by the Philippine and Chinese governments, calling the outcome as “lutong Macau.”
”Lutong Macau” is a old (offensive, racist) Filipino expression that means something was rigged.
