MAY 22, 2020 — The Bureau of Immigration on Friday filed a deportation charge against Salvador Parra, a Spanish international who made the rounds on social media after a heated exchange with a Makati police officer for alleged quarantine violation.
Immigration chief Jaime Morente maintains that foreigners are expected to follow the country’s laws regardless of social status, citing Parra’s violent reaction toward the policemen who apprehended him in his household.
“Foreign nationals who are here in the country are expected to follow Philippine laws, especially in these special times wherein public health and safety is at risk,” Morente said.
The agency filed deportation charges against Spanish national Salvador Parra after an altercation with Makati police over his househelp’s alleged quarantine violation.
Earlier, there have been calls to check Parra’s foreign status following reports on his encounter with authorities last April 26.
The altercation happened after a cop demanded Parra to pay a P1,000-fine for allowing their house helper to water their plants in front of their house without a face mask, even as she performed the task inside their private property.
Makati police has since filed criminal complaints against Parra for unjust vexation, assault, disobedience, and violating quarantine rules.
“There is no exemption, whether you are living in a posh village, or in a slum area, you must obey the law,” Morente reiterated. (Audrie Julienne Bernas / JBS)
