Ban on foreigners engaging in activism in the Philippines issued by Leila De Lima in July 2015 as then Justice Secretary



Below is an image of this order the PDF version of which can be downloaded from the Philippines' Bureau of Immigration website via the above link...


The order is clear and specific with regard to what non-resident foreigners are prohibited from engaging in while in the Philippines...

Foreign tourists in the Philippine are enjoined to observe the limitation on the exercise of their political rights during their stay in the Philippines. Foreign tourists are prohibited from engaging in any political activity as defined by law and jurisprudence, such as but not limited to, joining, supporting, contributing or involving themselves in whatever manner in any rally, assembly or gathering, whether for or against the government.

The Philippine Opposition need to get their facts straight before launching outrage fad "protest" initiatives against moves of the government that are, in actual fact, consistent with prevailing guidelines and rules.
