Japanese actress, model Maria Ozawa aired to Facebook her dismay after learning that a photo of her passport and ID picture were posted by an alleged Bureau of Immigration staff online. “One of my friends texted me today with this picture saying my privacy might be going viral. At first I didn’t know what she was talking about but when I saw the picture of my ID/alien card posted saying “I bet you know this girl” made me so mad and sad at the same time,” Ozawa said in her post with the screen shot Armee Camzon’s social networking account, the alleged Immigration staff who posted her passport and ID picture.
“This is very wrong. Immigration is a place where people TRUST and give their private accounts, details and look what she’s done to my privacy…Posting it on her social media,” she said.
She added that she loves the Philippines and wants to stay for good. “But how can I stay here for good when people like this really exist? How I’m I supposed to trust people? If this was just someone I knew or some random people posting it for fun I can understand.”
“They are just being bastos.But people who actually work in the immigration doing stuff like this? I just cannot believe it,” she said.
She added that her “managers already know about this sad incident so I will leave it up to them but it’s just too sad and depressing I had to share it with you guys.”
Meanwhile, the Bureau of Immigration already ordered an investigation of the incident. “The BI Personnel Section was tasked to confirm whether the person who holds the account is one among BI’s almost 2,000 employees,” Immigration spokesperson Ma. Antonette Mangrobang told GMA News Online.
“We assure the public that such case is isolated and the right to privacy of BI’s clients is our paramount concern,” Mangrobang said.
