Singaporean faces deportation over links to human trafficking ring

03:57 PM December 17, 2012

MANILA, Philippines–The Bureau of Immigration has started deportation proceedings against a Singaporean national  suspected of having ties with a human trafficking syndicate that provides fake Philippine passports to Chinese nationals travelling to the country.

Acting Immigration intelligence Chief Ma. Antonette Mangrobang identified the Singaporean as Law Suang See,

Mangrobang said See was with a Chinese companion Jianhuang Guo, 37. They were both arrested at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport 3 terminal last Dec. 12 when the duo arrived on a Cebu Pacific flight from Macau .


Both are currently detained at the immigration jail in Bicutan, Taguig pending deportation proceedings.

Mangrobang said the passengers were apprehended after Guo presented a Philippine passport in the name of Johnny De la Cruz Que, which turned out to be spurious.

She said Guo’s inability to speak in Filipino aroused the suspicion of immigration officers who then doubted the authenticity of his Philippine passport.

At this point, See admitted that his companion could not conversed in Filipino and that the latter is actually a Chinese national.

He then produced his companion’s Chinese passport and identification card as a holder of a special resident retiree’s visa.

Guo was also carrying a birth certificate purportedly issued by the National Statistics Office, an NBI clearance and Taxpayer’s Identification Number (TIN) card.
