manila - The Philippines have withdrawn the visa from an Australian nun and given her 30 days to leave the country. The reason is her participation in an anti-government demonstration.
The 71-year-old sister Patricia Fox has been living in the Philippines for 27 years, where she heads Our Lady of Sion, a Catholic congregation of nuns. She was given the watch after the Filipino president Rodrigo Duterte complained about her participation in the protests.

Fox had been detained for a day last week. This happened after Duterte ordered an investigation into alleged 'misconduct' of the nun.
