Chinese fugitive arrested

Immigration authorities nabbed a Chinese fugitive wanted in China for large-scale fraud amounting to more than P441 million.

The man was identified as Xu Zhongqing, nabbed at the Pacific Drive in Pasay City.

Xu was arrested on the strength of a deportation warrant requested by the Chinese Embassy in Manila which sought the BI’s assistance to arrest Xu, who has been hiding in the country after fleeing China several years ago to avoid prosecution for his crimes.

BI Immigration Intelligence chief Bobby Raquepo said Xu was wanted by Chinese authorities for acquiring more than 63 million yuan or equivalent to more than P441 million through fraudulent bank transactions.

His name is likewise included in the Interpol’s Red Notice list, and his passport has been revoked by the Chinese government.

Immigration Spokesperson Dana Krizia Sandoval said Xu was detained at the Bureau’s Detention Facility in Bicutan, Taguig pending his deportation.

“He was already placed in our Immigration Blacklist, thus he is now perpetually banned from re-entering the Philippines,” Sandoval said.
