Six Chinese nationals deported

Department of Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla disclosed on Wednesday that at least six Chinese nationals who worked in Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators and whose licenses had been cancelled departed for Wuhan, China on “self-deportation.”

The departure of the six aliens, according to Remulla, will be the first deportations since the government started its crackdown on those working with illegally operated POGOs.

Remulla said the “self-deportation” of the six Chinese nationals was contained in a letter sent to him through Department of Justice Undersecretary Jose R. Cadiz by Bureau of Immigration commissioner Norman G. Tansingco.

The Chinese nationals were identified as Yu Min, Nie Zhengbiao, Gan Xueliang, Xu Yuangang, Qian Jie and Yang Bin.

Remulla was also told that the Chinese nationals have been staying at the BI’s Warden Facility in Taguig City after being turned over by the Philippine National Police in Pampanga.

Meantime, agents of the National Bureau of Investigation rescued more than 30 alleged victims of human trafficking in separate operations conducted in Bulacan.

The women were rescued by the NBI Bulacan office in a resto-grill in Bocaue, Bulacan.

Investigations showed that a package deal was being offered to prospective customers of the resto-grill for P1,000, which include drinks and sex.

In a separate operation, also in Bocaue, the NBI raided a spa wherein 11 women were rescued while operatives arrested two suspects. The NBI said the spa offers “extra service” to their clients.

The suspects arrested in both operations will face charges related to the violation of the Expanded Anti-Trafficking Act.
