Meanwhile, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said that the president's statement was misquoted and reports are sometimes inaccurate. The President reportedly said that the ban is now permanent -- that is not the case, he said.

Secretary Bello also said that he will still clarify the issue with the president.
