Presumptive president Ferdinand Marcos Jr. flew on Monday to Melbourne in Australia where his youngest son Vincent, 25, is preparing to start studies for a Juris Doctor degree at the University of Melbourne, according to reports in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald.
On Tuesday, protesters picketed outside the Victoria One apartment building where Marcos Jr. and his wife Lisa were said to be staying, per the Age report. As shown in a photograph taken by Simon Schluter, the protesters carried anti-Marcos signs.
Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade coordinated with Philippine authorities on security arrangements for the trip, according to the Age report by Chris Barrett and Matilda Finn.
Marcos Jr.’s camp in the Philippines had confirmed the trip.
