Australian nun, 71, faces deportation from the Philippines for 'illegal political activities'

Binay was referring to Sister Patricia Fox, an Australian human rights activist who authorities arrested for supposedly participating in political activities.

Sister Fox had been involved with human rights missions in Mindanao in the country's troubled southern region, looking into the plight of indigenous people and farmers, leftwing lawmakers said, nearly a year after President Rodrigo Duterte imposed martial law on the southern island of Mindanao.

The immigration department informed her about deportation proceedings against her, he said.

Sister Patricia Fox, a missionary of the Our Lady of Sion, was apprehended Monday afternoon by six BI agents at their mission house in Quezon City.

Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente approved Fox's release "after it was established that the Australian nun holds a valid missionary visa and, thus, she is a properly documented alien", his bureau said in a statement.

Santos said that inquest proceedings applies only to those aliens caught in the act violating such.

The BI earlier justified the arrest of Fox by saying that she had violated the conditions of her stay in the country by attending protest rallies and engaging in political activities.

Fox said she was never questioned by authorities in the numerous times she has been coming in and out of the country, adding that "the immigration bureau has not said anything on what to do with her missionary visa".

The CBCP said she was detained at the Intelligence Division of the Bureau of Immigration in Intramuros.

At least two senators are questioning the Bureau of Immigration's "crackdown" against foreign activists, following the arrests of a European Union Socialist Party official and a 71-year-old nun. "She extended help to the Hacienda Luisita, Negros and Mindanao farm workers on their land cultivation campaign", they said.

"The immigration department is barking at the wrong tree on this one", the MPs said in a statement calling for her immediate release.
Pat Fox had a good standing status both in Australia and in the Philippines.
