Months after tapping a high-profile law firm, Pokwang is determined to take her domestic woes with ex-partner Lee O’Brian to court as she filed a deportation complaint and cancellation of visa against the latter.

Photos of Pokwang and public interest lawyer Ralph Calinisan at what seemed to be a Bureau of Immigration office made rounds on social media, where she spoke about defending her rights as a mother and woman.


The actress-comedienne’s camp also claimed that O’Brian was using a tourist visa even though he’s been staying in the country for the past eight years.


“Kailangan natin mabigyan ng leksyon ‘yung mga taong umaabuso sa batas natin at sa karapatan ng bawat babae at bawat nanay,” she explained to reporters, as seen in a video uploaded by entertainment journalist MJ Marfori.

“Sobra [ang] ginawa niya, mentally. Hindi ako makatulog sa sobrang [sakit]. Hindi niya nagagawa ang obligasyon niya bilang ama. Sobrang masakit ‘yun para sa anak namin,” she continued.

(We have to teach those who violate the law a lesson, especially when it comes to people who abuse women and mothers. He did so much to me mentally. I couldn’t even sleep because of the pain. He didn’t fulfill his obligation as a father. It’s really painful for my daughter.)

Pokwang also shared a photo of her court documents that will be filed against her estranged partner on her Instagram account on Tuesday, June 13.

“Para sa karapatan ko at ng anak ko, para sa mga kapwa ko babae at sa bayan ko,” she said in the caption. (For my rights and for my daughter’s, for my fellow women and my country.)

While Pokwang’s fans flocked to the comments of her post to show their support, she didn’t hesitate to affirm her recent move against O’Brian, as seen in a response to one @dmnqbron who accused her of involving the country in her romantic woes.

“Sa mga dedma sa batas yun ang ibig [kong] sabihin dito mga walang pake na dayuhan!” she wrote. (My post is meant for those who ignore the law, especially to foreigners.)
