MANILA, Philippines — Suspended Bamban Mayor Alice Guo used Chinese and Philippine passports from 2008 to 2011, Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian said on Wednesday, citing immigration records.

According  to Gatchalian,  Guo or Guo Hua Ping  first entered  the Philippines  on January 12, 2003 using a Chinese passport. She was then 13 years old and accompanied by her suspected Chinese biological mother, Lin Wenyi.


“Ito lahat nasa Bureau of Immigration, hindi imbento namin ito,”  the senator said in an interview over Radyo 630.


(It’s all in the Bureau of Immigration, we didn’t make this up.)

“Magkasama sila sa eroplano. Pareho pa nga yung Bureau of Immigration officer na nagtatak nung kanilang passport. Nakita rin namin sa records,”  Gatchalian said, referring to Guo and Lin.

(They were together on the  airplane. The same Bureau of Immigration officer even stamped their passports. We also saw this in the records.)

He said the two later applied for a Special Investors Resident Visa  (SIRV) at the Board of Investments, which allowed them to travel in and out of the Philippines.

“In fact, from the time ng 2008 to 2011, si Alice Guo at si Guo Hua Ping, gamit niya dalawang passport. Pasok-labas, pasok-labas. Ginagamit niya minsan yung Chinese passport niya. Ginagamit niya minsan yung Filipino passport niya,” said the senator.


(In fact, from  2008 to 2011,  Alice Guo  and Guo Hua Ping used two passports. In and out. She sometimes used her Chinese passport. Sometimes she used her Philippine passport.)

“Until after 2011 lang niya ginamit yung kanyang Filipino passport pag lumalabas na siya,” he added.

(It’s until after 2011 that she used her  Philippine passport whenever she traveled.)

The name Guo Hua Ping appeared in a copy of SIRV  and a  Chinese passport that the senator  released to the media on Tuesday night.

Gatchalian suspects that Guo and  Guo Hua Ping are one and  the same.

But Guo, through her lawyer Stephen David, denied that Guo Hua Ping is her real identity.

“Ang statement ni mayor is she is Filipino, she is issued a Philippine passport, marami siyang real estate properties na hindi mo magagawa kung ikaw ay isang foreigner,” said David in a separate interview over Radyo 630.

(Her statement is that she is Filipino, she was issued a Philippine passport, and she has many real estate properties that you cannot acquire if you are a foreigner.)

“And categorically, sinasabi niyang wala siyang kinalaman diyan sa Guo Hua Ping,” he added.

(And categorically, she says she has nothing to do with Guo Hua Ping.)

The lawyer  also insisted that the suspended mayor is a Philippine passport holder,  which she used  when traveling to China.

“Kung totoong meron siyang Chinese passport, hindi niya na kailangan kumuha ng Chinese visa. Kasi ‘yung kaniyang Chinese passport valid ‘yon sa China,” said David.

(If she really has a Chinese passport, she doesn’t need to get a Chinese visa. Because her Chinese passport is valid in China.)
