Philippines to deport Korean wanted for sex crimes


MANILA, Philippines—The Bureau of Immigration (BI) is set to deport a South Korean national arrested for allegedly operating a prostitution ring in Manila.

BI Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. identified the Korean as Park Jun Youn, 44, who was arrested on April 18 at his rented apartment along Debron St., Makati by operatives of the bureau’s fugitive search unit (FSU).

Park was arrested after the BI Board of Commissioners issued a summary deportation order against him for being an undesirable alien.

“He should be deported for taking advantage of the Filipino women whom he had exploited and lured to have sex with Korean men,” David said.

Immigration acting intelligence chief Atty. Ma. Antonette Mangrobang said Park was issued an arrest warrant by the Cheongju district court in Korea last year when he was charged with violating Seoul’s anti-sexual trafficking and brokering law.

The charge alleged that between March 2007 and March 2008, Park enticed scores of Korean male tourists to travel to Manila and have sex with Filipinas via his “escort service” business.

Park allegedly charged a fee of P75,000 to each Korean man who availed of the women’s “escort” services.

Park was able to obtain a permanent visa in 2010 but Mangrobang said it was already cancelled.

“A permanent visa does not confer a foreigner the absolute right to stay in the Philippines. It is only a privilege that can be withdrawn if the foreigner’s presence here is inimical to our national interest,” Mangrobang said.
