Caged nun released
A 71-YEAR-OLD Melbourneborn nun who spent 24 hours detained in a “cage jammed full of people” in the Philippines has been released but will face further investigation.
Sister Patricia Cox’s lawyer says an order was made for her release yesterday afternoon, a day after the nun was taken from her house to the immigration bureau in Manila and detained for “illegal political activities”.
Jobert Ilarde Pahilga said Sister Cox was released and would not be deported. But the lawyer said the case hadn’t been dismissed.
