Bureau of Immigration (BI) officers have arrested two Indians and a Taiwanese for allegedly using fake immigration stamps at the Clark International Airport (CIA).
BI Intelligence division chief Fortunato Manahan, Jr. identified the Taiwanese as Lai Po Ving, and the Indian nationals as Amritpal and Pritpal Singh who all attempted to board a Tiger Air flight bound to Singapore.
According to Manahan, Lai initially presented his Turkish passport bearing the name Lai Bulut along with his Special Investor’s Resident Visa (SIRV) card.
After further verification of his travel history and documents, it was learned that Lai was the subject of a summary deportation order issued last April 2021 for violation of the terms and conditions of his stay under the Philippine Immigration Act of 1940. Vito Barcelo
“He tried to evade prosecution for his crime by using his Turkish passport, but his plan was foiled by our officers who were very thorough in checking his records,” said Manahan.
Meanwhile, Amritpal and Singh were apprehended for having passports stamped with counterfeit Philippine entry visas, visa extension stickers, and arrival records. Vito Barcelo
