Manila, Philippines, Apr 25, 2018 / 15:01 pm
An Australian Catholic nun who has been working as a missionary in the Philippines for nearly 30 years has been ordered to leave the country on the grounds of allegedly joining protest rallies.
Sister Patricia Fox, 71, will be deported within 30 days, after the immigration bureau revoked her missionary visa. Her deportation order stated that she was "found to have engaged in activities that are not allowed under the terms and conditions of her visa," according to Reuters.
"She has not participated in any partisan activity. She is a nun," said Jobert Pahilga, one of Fox's lawyers, in a report from Reuters.
"We will file a motion for reconsideration on this order," Pahilga continued.
