EU Politician, Na Pina-Deport ng DU30 Gov't, Rumesbak! "I'm Proud! I'm Sitting on a Plane!"

Nagsalita na si Giacomo Filibeck, ang EU politician na sinipa palabas ng bansa ng Gobyerno dahil sa pangingialam sa isyu pampulitikal ng Pilipinas. Si Filibeck ay dumating sa Pilipinas para dumalo sa Congress Party ng Akbayan pero hinarang ito sa Cebu-Mactan International Airport at dineport. Si Filibeck ay isa sa mga EU politicians na nagtungo sa Pilipinas noong Oktubre 2017 para kundinahin ang giyera kontra-droga ng Duterte Administration. Ipinagbabawal sa batas ng Pilipinas ang pakikisali ng mga dayuhan sa "partisan political activities" sa ating bansa.

"Dear friends of Akbayan, I'm very sorry I won't be able to be with you at your congress. As you may have heard, I've been refused entry into your country, since I'm blacklisted under the accusation of being involved and engaged in illegal political activities. Let me tell you that, if being a European social democrat committed to the cause of democracy and human rights and on this basis having the privilege and the honour to work in cooperation with the leadership of your movement of Akbayan, of all of you, for the respect of human dignity in your country, well then this accusation could not make me more proud. I'm obviously not worried about myself. As you can see, I'm sitting on a plane, waiting to go back to Europe. What worries me is the condition in which your political fight is taking place under this government, the difficulties you are daily encountering in making your voice heard for the respect of basic human rights. Let me tell you, this little incident is only making us more committed to support you in you cause," sabi ni Filibeck
