Chris Brown, promoter file application for emigration clearance
American recording artist Chris Brown and promoter John Michael Pio Roda have filed their applications for an emigration clearance certificate (ECC) at the Bureau of Immigration to be able to leave the country.
An ECC is issued to a foreign national as proof he has no pending obligations in the Philippines.
Brown and Pio Roda are the subjects of an immigration lookout bulletin order following the request of Maligaya Development Corp., the overall administration and management of Ciudad de Victoria where Iglesia ni Cristo’s Philippine Arena is located.
They have been slapped with a $1-million complaint for estafa after Brown failed to perform at Philippine Arena on Dec. 31, 2014.
Immigration chief Siegfred Mison said they needed to know the status of the estafa complaint at the Department of Justice before acting on the application for ECC.
The case has been assigned to a prosecutor for the conduct of a preliminary investigation.
