BI confirms 4 convicted Chinese drug lords up for deportation
MANILA, Philippines -The Bureau of Immigration (BI) confirmed that four convicted Chinese nationals who Senator Panfilo Lacson said have been released from the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) are already in their custody.
BI’s Deputy Spokesman Melvin Mabulac said Chan Chit Yue, Kin San Ho, Ching Che, Wu Hing Sum are currently detained at the Bureau of Immigration Warden’s Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig.
Mabulac said summary deportation order has been signed and already approved by the Board of Commissioners on Aug. 23.
“Implementation of the same will be ASAP as soon relevant documents are complied [such as] NBI clearance,” Mabulac said, adding that the BI exercises its ministerial function to deport foreign nationals who completed the service of sentence in Philippine prison.
Lacson said the four Chinese nationals were previously detained at the Building 14 of the Bilibid’s Maximum Security Compound. Inmates detained at Building 14 are high-risk inmates believed to still manage to have contact outside and continuing their criminal activities.
