AGENTS from the Bureau of Immigration’s Fugitive Search Unit (BI-FSU) arrested a 59-year-old Japanese who had been reportedly hiding in the country to evade a warrant issued for his arrest in his home country.

FSU Chief Bobby Raquepo, in his report to the BI commissioner,  identified the Japanese as Misao Kaminsukaso also known as ‘Misao Koyama’. His arrest was a result of coordinated enforcement operations between the FSU and the group of Chief Inspector Yusuke Nakano of the Interpol, Tokyo.

It was learned that enforcement operations were conducted at the corner of Roxas Boulevard and Gil Puyat, resulting in the arrest of Koyama, pursuant to Mission Order No. JHM-2018-293 dated December 18, 2018.

The order was issued against Koyama ‘for posing risk to public safety and security being a fugitive from justice as per official communication from Chief Consul Toshio Kawauchi, Embassy of Japan dated 23 Oct 2018.’

Koyama, Raquepo reported, has a standing warrant of arrest ‘for uttering counterfeit private documents bearing a seal or signature and attempting false entries in the original of an electromagnetic notarized deeds.’

Following his arrest, Koyama was brought to the BI main office in Intramuros for documentation.
