Casimiro said the three Malaysians were using old passports.

“They have no record of departure corresponding to their arrival, which means that they are overstaying,” he said.

Maria Socorro Rojas, the City Social Welfare Officer, said they were still “assessing” the victims because they claimed they were from Jolo, Sulu, but do not speak Tausug.
