JOCJOC BOLANTE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER?
There are rumors that former Agriculture Undersecretary Jocjoc Bolante is already in town. He must have been whisked away immediately upon arrival, thus avoiding media personnel. A possible entry point would be the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) in Pampanga. Many Filipino deportees from the United States are flown to the Philippines by charter flights which land at the DMIA for less media exposure. What has fueled the rumors is the recent announcement by the US Court of Appeals denying Bolante his application for political asylum. Usually, deportation orders are carried out immediately, with the deportee being sent back to his country of origin. Only an appeal to the US Supreme Court can stop such an order, but this is a long shot and I don’t think Jocjoc would like to spend more time at the Kenosha Detention Facility in Wisconsin. Read more.
