Palace : No need to protest Morales HK detention



There will be no need to file a protest against Hong Kong over the perceived bullying of former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales detention by immigration officials at the airport for allegedly being a “security threat.”
Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo made the remark following the call of opposition senator Risa Hontiveros to protest what she described as “retaliation” against the former Ombudsman.


Panelo, explains will some sectors wanted the Philippine government to make a protest over issue, the Philippine government also respects Hong Kong’s  immigration laws and would only protest if she was mistreated.

“Ang gusto yata ng iba bumanat tayo but you know, tinanong ko si ano (Morales) kumusta naman yung trato sa iyo, kung binastos siya, kung ministreat siya, ay hindi pupuwede sa ’tin yan (Some sectors want us to condemn the way she was treated but when I asked Morales how was she treated, because if she was mistreated, we can’t accept that) we will definitely protest,” Panelo said.
"Pero hindi naman. Tinanong lang siya pero wala naman siyang reklamo na binastos siya (But she wasn’t mistreated. She was only questioned but she didn’t complain about being mistreated),” he added.
Last March, Morales along with former Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario filed a complaint before the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Chinese President Xi Jinping for alleged crimes against humanity in the disputed West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).
