Chinese student lands in trouble for her pudding tantrum

A Chinese language arts scholar who sparked public outrage within the Philippines after she threw a cup of soy pudding at a police officer has expressed regret over her behaviour.

This comes as attorneys for the immigration bureau suggest {that a} deportation case be filed towards her.

“I [was] actually in a foul temper and I used to be not in a position to management my emotion. I actually admit the error I made and I really feel so regretful,” Zhang Jiale instructed GMA Information on Monday within the jail the place she is being held.

The 23-year-old, a first-year scholar on the SoFA Design Institute in Makati metropolis, was headed into the metro in Manila on Saturday when she was stopped by the officer who instructed her that earlier than going inside she must end the cup of taho, a Philippine snack meals of tofu, syrup and sago pearls, in her hand.

As a substitute, Zhang argued with the officer, threw a tantrum, and chucked the cup of taho at his chest.

Zhang was arrested afterwards on expenses of “direct assault, disobedience to agent or particular person in authority and unjust vexation.” Quickly, her mugshot went viral together with the video of the taho flinging incident.

Zhang, whose father is an investor, has been residing within the Philippines for six years.

The immigration bureau stated yesterday that its attorneys “have discovered possible trigger” to deport her. Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente added: “The bureau is not going to tolerate such acts, as this reveals disrespect to the nation.” Zhang might face deportation and ultimately be blacklisted from the Philippines.
