BI deports 46 Chinese for running illegal online trading business
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has deported 46 Chinese nationals who have been arrested last month for their involvement in illegal online trading business.
“We already placed them in our immigration blacklist to prevent them from re-entering the country,” BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said in a statement.
The 46 Chinese fugitives were part of the 81 foreigners arrested last Nov. 7 by BI’s Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) for operating an illegal online trading business.
The Chinese nationals were detained for three weeks at Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City before being deported.
BI Legal Division Chief Arvin Cesar Santos said the board issued the deportation papers last Nov. 17.
The BI said the Chinese nationals were escorted by Chinese police back to their country.
