OFFICERS of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) stopped the entry of two Chinese fugitives at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3.

In a report to BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco, Border Control and Intelligence Unit Head Dennis Alcedo detailed the interception of Yang Ke, 32, after arriving from Bangkok last July 20.

Yang was found to be in the Interpol database for alleged membership in a criminal organization in China. He was said to be the head of a gambling game development department, which profited more than two million Chinese Yuan.

The case was immediately coordinated with Chinese police representatives in Manila, who arranged for Yang’s return to China the following day.

The BCIU also reported the exclusion of Tang Wenjie, 26, who arrived from Hong Kong last July 22.

Tang was found to be in the Interpol Blue Notice for fraud. Records show that the Changle Public Security Bureau of Weifang City issued a detention warrant against Tang, and he was said to be involved in fraud amounting to 5 million CNY by luring investors for a gambling site.

Tang was denied entry and was sent back to his port of origin.

“Our port personnel ensure that these foreign fugitives are not able to enter or stay in our country,” said Tansingco. “Our centralized database allows them to be intercepted upon entry in the country,” he added.
