He might have titillated the public’s imagination with his convincing performance in the movie Glorious opposite Angel Aquino on a tale about a May-December affair, but actor Tony Labrusca might have just made his last film in the country.
This after the Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Monday said that it is about to wrap-up its investigation on the case of Labrusca, who came under fire after making a scene at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) last week.
Labrusca’s real citizenship status came under intense scrutiny when he confronted an immigration officer and called him idiot after he was given a 30-day tourist visa shortly after his arrival.
Justice Undersecretary and spokesperson Mark Perete said they are waiting for the recommendation of BI but sources at the agency said there is huge possibility that the actor will be recommended for deportation.
Deportation proceedings are handled by the BI, which is an attached agency of the Department of Justice.
Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr., for his part, said Labrusca must be deported immediately.
“Just deport him,” Locsin posted on Twitter in reaction to the incident that happened on Thursday.
The actor already apologized for the incident, saying he was frustrated and was not aware of the policy that he needed to be with his parents to qualify for a balikbayan stamp.
