US document shows Yasay a former US citizen

Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. has been listed by the US Federal Register as among the Americans who have lost their citizenship based on information received by the US government as of December 31, 2016.

Yasay in November denied that he had dual citizenship as both a Filipino and an American.

"I would like to assure the Filipino people that I am a Filipino citizen, I don't have any dual citizenship, I am not an American, I am a Filipino in thought, in word, and in deed," Yasay said.

On Wednesday, the Commission on Appointments reset Yasay's confirmation as foreign affairs secretary over several issues including reports that he had US citizenship.
