NCRPO wants Chinese in ‘taho’ incident to be tagged as ‘undesirable alien’
MANILA, Philippines — National Capital Region Police Office chief Director Guillermo Eleazar will recommend placing the Chinese woman involved in the taho-throwing incident as an “undesirable agent.”
“We will recommend for her to be considered as an ‘undesirable agent’ and it will be the basis of the Bureau of Immigration to process her deportation,” Eleazar said in a statement on Sunday.
The statement of Eleazar stemmed after Chinese national Jiale Zhang on Saturday threw her cup of taho at a policeman after he barred her from entering the train at Boni station of the Metro Rail Transit line 3 (MRT-3).
Zhang, 23, was brought to the Mandaluyong Police Community Precinct 5 and detained for disrespecting PO1 William Cristobal, 39.
She is facing complaints of direct assault, disobedience to a person in authority, and unjust vexation.
“We can’t just imagine kung paano at kung gaano kawalang galang. Siyempre kahihiyan ito sa ating uniporme,” Eleazar said.
Eleazar also noted that the punishment filed against Zhang is implemented for anyone who disobeyed rules and policies in the country.
“Tayo sa Pilipinas, we have policies here, when we are in other countries, we also follow their existing rules and law. Kaya kung nasa local at foreign country tayo sundin natin ang batas na pinapatupad naman ng kapulisan. Respetuhin natin ang ating kapulisan,” he said.
The Department of Transportation is already eyeing to impose a ban from riding the MRT-3 against Zhang after the taho throwing incident.
The Bureau of Immigration likewise is looking for possible actions versus the Chinese national. /je
