September 30, 2018

AGENTS of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) have arrested 46 Chinese nationals wanted by authorities in Beijing for economic crimes.

BI Commissioner Jaime Morente yesterday said the arrested fugitives were involved in cyber fraud operations in call centers they are illegally operating  in the country.

He said the aliens will soon be deported to China so they can be tried for their crimes, and will be blacklisted and banned from re-entering the country.

It was learned that the aliens were arrested in two operations conducted by operatives from the BI Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) in Makati and Muntinlupa cities, following a request from the Chinese Embassy in Manila.
