MANILA — The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has deported Thai national Prasertsri Kosin for his racist comments in his Facebook account where he tagged Filipinos as “pignoys,” “stupid creatures,” “low-class slum slaves” and “useless race in the world.”

According to BI Commissioner Siegfred Mison, the foreigner boarded Thai Airways Flight TG625 at 8 p.m. last May 8.

On the other hand, BI spokesperson Elaine Tan said the foreigner was sent back to Thailand by virtue of a voluntary deportation order signed by the Board of Commissioners after its meeting last May 7.

“He was deported upon his presentation of an outbound ticket and upon verification that his name registered ‘no hit’ in the NBI records,” she said in a statement.

The foreigner was accused of undesirability and he later admitted the charge by filing a petition for voluntary deportation.
