Senator Grace Poe said her husband Neil Llamanzares has completed his renunciation of his US citizenship and is expected to receive Friday a certification from the US embassy.

“I’d to clarify this issue once and for all, my husband has renounced before a public officer here in the Philippines and has done so also in the US embassy and he’s actually getting his certificate already today,” Poe said in an interview over ABS-CBN News Channel’s (ANC) Headstart program.


“It’s a long process,” she said.

Asked if that meant her husband had renounced before the US embassy, she said: “He has, weeks ago. He’s done that but he had to start here.”

“And you know, there’s a fee for that, you should be able to file your taxes for the last five years. You have to put all those documents together and to submit that so by the time you go there (US embassy), you have to have it there.”

Poe, an independent candidate for President, clarified that her husband is a natural Filipino because both his parents are Filipinos.

It just happened, she said, that her husband was born in the US while his parents were residing and working there.
