Babbu Maan & his band were arrested for holding a benefit concert for  “Typhoon Yolanda” victims without a work permit, the Bureau of Immigration said Friday.

Babbu Maan & his band held a concert on Wednesday at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay, said Immigration Officer-in-Charge Siegfred Mison.

Maan and his company appeared to have engaged in gainful activity  by performing in a revenue generating concert on Tuesday December 4 without procuring a Special Working Permit  from the Philippine government,” said Miso.

He said ticket for the concert were sold at P2,500 to P3,500.

An Immigration supervisor had informed Maan  and his band  when they arrived Tuesday about the requirements needed for performances by foreign artists in the country. But Mison said Maan’s group ignored the reminder.

The Immigration has relaxed its rules for foreigners wanting to raise funds for  “Typhoon Yolanda” victims. But Immigration Spokesperson Maria Angelica Pedro said there was also no indication in the ticket that it was a benefit concert.

Babbu Maan and his group will remain at the Immigration’s holding center in Bicutan pending a deportation order.
