MANILA, Philippines – The Bureau of Immigration has issued a deportation order against German national Marc Sueselbeck, the fiancé of slain transgender Filipino Jennifer Laude. He will also be placed on the Philippine blacklist.
The decision was made at the Board of Commissioners meeting on Thursday, October 30, following the Motion for Voluntary Deportation filed by Sueselbeck on Tuesday.
The order states that Sueselbeck, in filing a motion for voluntary deportation, is “deemed to admit the charges against him, agrees to have his name placed in the Black List and be barred from re-entering the country, and undertakes to secure his outbound ticket.”
Sueselbeck can leave the country as a deportee subject to presentation of his outbound ticket and National Bureau of Immigration (NBI) clearance.
The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) had earlier filed for Sueselbeck’s declaration as an undesirable alien after the German national entered a military camp without prior authorization, and for assaulting a military officer. (WATCH: Jennifer Laude’s sister, fiance, climb military fence)
While Sueselbeck had apologized for his actions, the AFP, on Wednesday, said that while it has accepted the apology, it “stands by its belief that Sueselbeck violated camp rules and regulations” and “should still be held accountable.”
The AFP’s position on the matter had drawn mixed sentiments from the public. – Rappler.com
