Immigration authorities have arrested a 71-year-old Australian nun known to be a human rights advocate for "attending protest rallies and engaging in political activities".

"She has always been in the Philippines helping the poorest of the poor".

But Pahilga said the nun did not join the rally and was visiting farmers and indigenous people in the area as part of her missionary work.

In a strongly worded statement, Akbayan, a sister organization of PES, condemned the detention and deportation of Filibeck as it pointed out: "This unfortunate incident only shows how paranoid this government is in keeping the rest of the world blind for the damage that President Duterte has done to our country".
