Font Size


THE BUREAU of Immigration (BI) has detained the 23-year old Chinese student who is facing assault and deportation cases after throwing a cup of soy bean curd drink at a police officer last Feb. 9. BI Spokesperson Krizia Dana M. Sandoval said Commissioner Jaime H. Morente issued a Mission Order to its Intelligence Division to take into custody Zhang Jiale, for violating immigration laws. She is now detained at the BI Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig pending deportation proceedings. “Zhang has already been charged as an undesirable alien for posing as a risk to public interest,” said Ms. Sandoval. “The incident showed her disrespect towards persons of authority, which in turn shows her disrespect to the country.” Ms. Zhang was also indicted by the Mandaluyong Prosecutor’s Office of direct assault on Feb. 12. “Her court case will run independent from her immigration case,” said Ms. Sandoval, “If found deportable, we will wait for the resolution of her court case before implementing the deportation.” — Vann Marlo M.
