The Departmentof Foreign Affair (DFA) confirmed that Samantha Lo, the Philippines’ bet to Miss Grand International in Caracas, Venezuela has no passport record.
Lo, according to DFA, was unable to go to Venezuela, where the pageant will be held, due to issues involving her passport.
In a statement sent to ABS-CBN News on Friday, the DFA said it received reports that Lo “was unable to continue her journey to Caracas due to alleged issues with her passport.”
“Based on an ongoing investigation, the DFA confirms that Ms. Lo has no record in the DFA passport database and is continuing the process of ascertaining the facts of the case,” it added.
Early this week, pageant fans noticed Lo’s absence from pre-pageant activities in Caracas, prompting speculation as to whether she was still an official candidate.
