OFW na Bastos kay PDU30, Pwedeng Kanselahin ang Passport ayon sa Abogado

Kamakailan ay naging laman ng mga balita ang hakbang ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) na ipa-deport ang Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) sa Taiwan na si Elanel Egot Ordidor dahil sa pambabastos at pagkakalat nito ng paninira laban sa Duterte Administration.
May ilang video si Ordidor na sinisiraan ang pamahalaan ng Pilipinas at sa isa pang video niya ay nagbanta ito na sasampalin ang Pangulo.

“We are constrained to act for the deportation of a Filipina working as caregiver in Taiwan for the crime of cyber libel for willful posting of nasty and malevolent materials against President Duterte on Facebook intended to cause hatred amidst the global health crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic,” sabi ng DOLE.

Nagsalita na ang Taiwan at sinabing hindi daw nila ipapa-deport ang nasabing OFW.
Ayon kay Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles, kung talagang seryoso ang DOLE na mapauwi ang OFW ay pwede naman kanselahin ang pasaporte nito.

“ALLEGEDLY Taiwan will not deport the OFW supposedly posting libelous comments against the president and his supporters.
If the DOLE is serious about sending Ms. Elanel Egot Ordidor home, it’s next step would be to file charges here in the Philippines and then have her passport cancelled.
When her passport is cancelled there will be no need to request deportation, as she will no longer have a necessary travel document. MECO will only have to notify the Immigrations authorities in Taiwan.

But why is the MECO claiming that Ordidor committed cyberlibel? That requires a complaint from the person libelled, the president. And as far as we can see, there is none.
Instead, they should have alleged cyber inciting to sedition which can be filed by any person with personal knowledge of the crime. But they did not do that.
Things are still happening on this, so let us see.” paliwanag ni Atty. Trixie.
