According to the agency, the three Chinese nationals have derogatory records and are subject to blacklist orders issued in 2023. They allegedly attempted to slip past BI counters at NAIA when authorities spotted them.

“The attempted illegal departure of these aliens poses a threat to national security and public safety,” said BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco.
