Manila, Philippines – The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has deported 67 foreigners suspected of being members of an international syndicate engaged in telecommunications, Internet, and credit card fraud.
Immigration Commissioner Ricardo A. David Jr. disclosed that they were deported to Beijing, China last Friday aboard a special flight chartered by the Chinese embassy in Manila. David said all the aliens were placed in the immigration blacklist, banning them from re-entering the Philippines.
He added that the deportees were expelled pursuant to a summary deportation order that the BI board of commissioners issued against them.
“They were deported for being undocumented aliens, which stemmed from the cancellation of their passports by the Chinese government,” the Immigration chief said. (Jun Ramirez)
