Tiglao slams Jim Paredes for meddling in PH affairs despite `Australian citizenship`
Former Arroyo Cabinet secretary Rigoberto Tiglao lambasted singer and known supporter of Liberal Party (LP) Jim Paredes for interfering in Philippine political matters even if he had previously emigrated to Australia.
Tiglao said that Paredes is someone “pretends to be concerned about the nation, when in his middle-aged years, he chooses to be an Australian.”
In his column in the Manila Times, Tiglao described Paredes as an Aquino loyalist and a pretentious Filipino.
“A big fan of Aquino, Jim Paredes pretends to be concerned about the nation, when in his middle-aged years, he chooses to be an Australian,” he wrote.
Paredes also known as a vocal defender of the Aquino administration.
Meanwhile, Paredes admitted that he emigrated to Australia in 1998 but he remained a Filipino.
“My two kids like it there, they’re already dual citizens. My wife can be a citizen if she wants. Me, I’m just a permanent resident, I go in and out,” he said.
