We take this opportunity to reiterate our commitment to the highest standards of diversity, inclusivity, transparency, and corporate governance. Thank you for bringing the matter to our attention. We look forward to your continued support.
Also, the Bureau of Immigration has already issued a deportation charges against Koko Narak. Elaine Tan, a spokeperson for the BI said:
Based on our records, Kosin is working under a special non-immigrant visa based on Section 47(a)(2) of the Philippine Immigration Act. The visa will be eventually cancelled should he be determined to be undesirable.
We cannot say at this point how long the proceedings will go—it may take two to six months depending on the evidence presented and the cooperation of the parties. Kosin also has the option to admit the charge against him and opt for voluntary deportation in order to expedite the proceedings.
Koko Narak angers netizens after posting deregatory remarks about Filipino people on his Facebook account.
