Marc Sueselbeck, the German fiance of slain transgender Jennifer Lauder, asks for forgiveness to Philippine government before he leaves.
In a press conference held at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 on Saturday afternoon, Sueselbeck first sent his gratitude to the government for allowing him to leave the country for him to continue with his career in his native land adding that he understands the procedure.
“Thank you that you allow me to leave, it was my intention already last week. But you know I think you did show up the point that you wanted to mention that no one gets away with it. I think I didn’t get away with it,” said Sueselbeck.
Sueselbeck added that he wasn’t aware of the political issues in the country and just came here in order to seek justice for the brutal killing of his fiance. He also acknowledged his mistake that she shouldn’t took part of the legal process in the country. Therefor, apologizing for his actions.
“I wasn’t aware of the political issues that is behind us. I thought it was really about brutal, unbelievable crime that has happened. It was about the person we all love. I wasn’t aware of the political part of it, and I’m apologizing. As someone who comes from outside, I probably should not have taken part in that,” Sueselbeck added.
Sueselbeck flew to go back home to Frankfurt, Germany via the China Airlines. He was seen escorted by the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) from Taguig City where he was detained.
According to Atty. Virgie Suarez, Sueselbeck was being escorted because it the process and “procedure of voluntary deportation.” And since his voluntary deportation was approved, he will be automatically black listed and nowbarred from entering the country again.
Petition to be Delisted
Suarez however said that it is always a right for someone to file a petition in order to flip the automatic blacklist.
“Of course Marc would always want to see how the trial is going on. So we will file the necessary petition as soon as possible,” said Suarez. “This whole thing is just to satisfy the whims and caprices of this government.”
Sueselback was about to leave last Sunday, October 26, when he barred from leaving the country due to the pending cases against him.
the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) filed a complaint against Sueselbeck before the Bureau of Immigration (BI) asking him to be declared as “undesirable alien” that stemmed from his “misbehavior” when he climbed through the fence of Camp Aguinaldo.
