MANILA, Philippines - At least three Filipinos who were deported from Oman last Wednesday complained of being forced out of their hotel room even after they had paid the fine for overstaying.

Online news site Khaleej Times reported Friday that the Filipinos claimed the hotel\'s general manager had collected Dh2,650 (P35,131.35) from each of them.

The Filipinos were among those stranded in Oman.

Six Filipinos, including the three who were deported, claimed they had paid for the overstay fines, but none of them was given an official receipt.

Also, they said they did not get the chance to meet the Immigration officers because the hotel management was in possession of their passports since the day they checked in.

But the hotel management said what they did was to simply facilitate the Filipinos\' safe return to Manila. The general manager also claimed he had returned the money to the Filipinos.

The general manager, whose identity the report withheld, added he merely helped them clear their outstanding fines at the airport.

He said the hotel had facilitated their departure because they wanted to go home as they had no money.

"Our service van took the three to Muscat at 4 p.m. Tuesday and bought their air ticket for the flight on Wednesday," he said.- GMANews.TV
