Aussie nun who an­gered Duterte forced to leave

The Idaho Statesman (Sunday) - - NATION & WORLD -

An Aus­tralian nun who an­gered the Philip­pine pres­i­dent by join­ing antigov­ern­ment protests used her fi­nal hours in the coun­try Satur­day to call on Filipinos to unite to fight hu­man rights abuses.

Sis­ter Pa­tri­cia Anne Fox left the Philip­pines for Aus­tralia on Satur­day night, im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cials said. The Bureau of Im­mi­gra­tion or­dered her de­ported in July, and down­graded her mis­sion­ary visa to a tem­po­rary vis­i­tor’s visa, which ex­pired Satur­day.

Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte has bris­tled at crit­i­cism, par­tic­u­larly by for­eign­ers, who he says have no right to med­dle in do­mes­tic af­fairs.
