"Why did he go there? That's my question to him. Was this deliberate on his part so that he would have the same situation where he could use it as a forum for his advocacy?" Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo.

Del Rosario’s lawyer Anne Marie Corominas said that the former Foreign Secretary is non-executive director of Hong Kong's First Pacific, was traveling to the Chinese special administrative region for a shareholders meeting.

Del Rosario claims there is "no rational explanation" as to why the Homg Kong immigration official held him in detention.

"We are of course questioning what the reasons are, why we were detained here or held up," Del Rosario said earlier Friday. 
Spox Panelo said he "cannot also understand" why Del Rosario still flew to Hong Kong despite Morales' earlier troubles with immigration officials there.
"Because if I were Del Rosario, I would have not gone to Hong Kong because  I would be—I’m sure, I would have anticipated, that I would be going to the same ordeal like the former Ombudsman did. Now why did he go there? That’s my question to him," he said.

In might be remembered that Del Rosario and Morales filed a case against Chinese President Xi Jinping in the International Criminal Court for alleged crimes against humanity. Carpio was also detained at the Hong Kong airport last May.
