The Philippines has approved the asylum application of Former Miss Iran, Bahareh Zare Bahari, Justice Undersecretary and spokesperson Markk Perete said on Friday, almost a month after the beauty queen was arrested at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
Bahari arrived in Manila from a two-week vacation in Dubai on October 18 but was barred from leaving the airport due to what authorities said was an International Police (Interpol) red notice.
“I can confirm that her [asylum] application has been approved as of Tuesday,” Perete told Arab News.
He added that he had yet to verify if Bahari had been allowed to leave the airport and admitted into the Philippines, adding that “as of Tuesday evening, the BI [Bureau of Immigration] has started processing her papers pursuant to the ruling on her [asylum] application.”
