BUREAU of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Norman Tansingco said 7 fugitives were arrested in Las Pinas on Wednesday, July 5.

Tansingco said that the 7 fugitives were turned over to the BI’s custody after earlier being arrested by the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Arrested were 4 Chinese and 3 Taiwanese.

The 4 Chinese were identified as Zhang Quanbao, Song Tianming, Yu Liming and Liu Jianxin.

The 3 Taiwanese were identified as Li Yi Liang, Huang Hsin-Chiang and Lin Yue Hong.

“We recently received information from their country that they are wanted fugitives,” said Tansingco.

“Hence a mission order was issued against them and they were arrested for being undesirable aliens,” he added.

Information from authorities revealed that warrants of detention were issued against the Chinese by the Public Security Bureau in China for contract fraud, drug trafficking, telecom fraud and theft, respectively.

Likewise, Taoyuan and Taichung District Prosecutors Office in Taiwan have issued warrants of arrest the Taiwanese fugitives for fraud and offense of Causing Bodily Harm.

The seven allegedly worked in a fraud syndicate running an online gaming hub in the Philippines. They will remain in the BI’s facility in Bicutan, Taguig pending deportation proceedings.
