The three foreigners caught urinating in the world renowned Boracay beaches will face the full force of the law.
Justice Undersecretary Markk Perete pointed out foreigners violating the country’s laws should be punished accordingly.
Any discussion of deportation should come after, he continued.
“As a matter of policy, if certain acts constitute violation of our laws, including our local ordinances, the offender should be first made to suffer the penalty for such violation,” Perete explained.
Chinese Zhang Zhi, 30, and Hao Yueran, 35, both billeted at the Fairways and Blue Waters Resort, were caught at 8:20 p.m. last Thursday urinating in public.
Six beach guards of the Malay local government were roving the beachfront when they saw the two peeing on the shore in front of Calypso Beach and Dove Resort at Station 3 in Barangay Manoc-Manoc.
Zhi and Yueran were brought to the police station and issued citation tickets in violation of a municipal ordinance on cleanliness and sanitation.
The following day, Korean Sungjun Kim was also caught for the same violation while in front of D’Mall. He was also issued a citation.
