The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) accepts the apology of Jiale Zhang, the Chinese national who threw a cup of soybean curd drink, locally known as taho, to a police officer providing security at the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) station in Boni Ave., Mandaluyong on Sunday, Feb. 9.
However, NCRPO Chief PDir. Guillermo Eleazar insists that the cases of Jiale, who is facing direct assault, disobedience to a person in authority, and unjust vexation, will still continue as they need to follow a process.
“We have a process na dapat niyang puntahan. Isa pa doon sa criminal case, ang deprived, ang victim diyan, ang offended party is PO1 (William) Cristobal,” Eleazar told reporters on Wednesday, Jan. 12.
“Pero kasi yung deportation, ang basis kasi is being declared as ‘undesirable alien’ which is a violation of immigration laws. With the filing of the case, I believe that the Bureau of Immigration (BI) is working for this,” Eleazar added.
Earlier, Eleazar urged the BI to consider Jiale, who has been living in the Philippines for five years and owns a visa attached to a relative that has a visa in the Philippines, as an ‘undesirable alien’ for her actions against Cristobal.
The Immigration bureau has already announced that they saw probable cause to file a deportation case against Jiale.
Meawnhile, Zhang was released from prison after posting her Php12,000 bail.
