Marc Sueselbeck, Jenny Laude’s fiancé, has left the country
He apologized for the commotion he caused
Marc Sueselbeck, the fiancé of murder victim Jenny Laude, has left the country. According to a report by ABS-CBN on Saturday, Sueselbeck’s flight left at 4:45 p.m. on Saturday. The German national volunteered to be deported after the Bureau of Immigration (BI) banned him from leaving the country because of a pending deportation case. Sueselbeck is now on the BI’s blacklist.
Sueselbeck figured in the strange legal dispute after he scaled the perimeter fence in Camp Aguinaldo and shoved a soldier during a protest. He was quick to apologize to the Armed Forces of the Philippines, but the AFP was determined to file a petition to declare him an undesirable alien.
Before he left, Sueselbeck apologized for his behavior once more, saying "If any Philippine person felt disrespected with what I did, I first want to apologize to all Philippine people. I always respected you. I want to say sorry to you all."
Regarding Laude’s case, he added, "I wasn’t aware of the political issue that is behind us. I thought it was really about the 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 still intends to return to the country and will be submitting a petition for re-entry in the future, so he can visit Laude’s grave.
