MANILA, Philippines — The Chinese woman who attacked traffic enforcers on Tuesday in Makati City, has been charged by the city police.
In a phone interview with INQUIRER.net on Thursday, Makati police chief Col. Oscar Jacildo said they filed complaints of physical injury, direct assault, and disobedience to persons in authority at the Makati Prosecutor’s Office against the woman who was later identified as Dong Li.
“Yes po kinasuhan na namin siya ng (direct) assault, physical injury at disobedience (to persons in authority),” Jacildo said when asked about updates on Dong’s case.
(Yes we already filed charges against her which is direct assault, physical injury and disobedience to persons in authority.)
Meanwhile, Makati police are still coordinating with the Bureau of Immigration and the Chinese Embassy to review Dong’s immigration status, Jacildo said.
