The government is looking at the possibility of filing a diplomatic protest against South Korea for deporting six Filipino militants over the weekend.

But Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma, Jr, in a radio interview, said they were still awaiting for the official report from the Department of Foreign Affairs regarding the incident.

He said they still had to see if there was concrete basis on the case before acting on filing a protest.

”Kung magkakaroon ng konkretong batayan tungkol diyan, doon lang tayo hahantong na maaaring magconsider niyan [If the incident has concrete basis, that's the time we may consider that],” he said.

Six Filipino activists were deported after being detained at the Incheon International Airport in Seoul late Saturday and was subsequently blacklisted by the SoKor government.

They were supposed to attend the G-20 Global Economic Summit in Seoul.

Earlier, a militant lawmaker urged the DFA to issue a diplomatic protest against SoKor for the incident.
