Chinese, Korean fugitives deported

The Bureau of Immigration ordered the deportation of four arrested fugitives from China and South Korea who are all wanted for fraud by authorities in their country.

Ordered deported were three Chinese identified as Lin Wengao, Zhang Sen, and Zhang Gaosheng who are all wanted for economic crimes, while the Korean, national Woo Yong Wook, is wanted for fraud by authorities in Seoul.

Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said the three Chinese were arrested in separate operations by agents from the bureau’s fugitive search unit in the cities of Manila and Pasay.

Woo, on the other hand, was nabbed in Malate, Manila.

All of them are undocumented aliens as their passports were already canceled by their respective governments.

“We will deport them immediately and they will be included in our blacklist to make sure that they won’t return to the Philippines,” Morente said.
