Thirteen Filipinos charged for waging a war against a Malaysian monarch are now ready for release following the decision of Malaysia’s high court on their acquittal.

Raul Dado, executive director for the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA)-Office of Migrant Workers Affairs, said Malaysian authorities were processing the papers of the Filipinos.

“[It’s] under process but let’s base on the immigration laws of Malaysia,” he said. “They’re now in the process of having their papers done.”

According to state-run Bernama, the Federal Court upheld the Malaysian Court of Appeal’s decision to acquit and discharge the Filipinos.

The names of the 13 Filipinos acquitted are withheld by DFA.
