Authorities deport 43 Chinese nationals over human trafficking activities

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Thursday deported 43 Chinese nationals employed by an establishment involved in human trafficking activities.

The bureau said the Chinese nationals were arrested by the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime (PAOCC) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) Women and Children Protection Center (WCPC) for violations of the Anti Trafficking in Persons Act in Pasay City.

The PAOCC and the PNP-WCPC discovered that the said foreign nationals were working for an establishment that engages in human trafficking activities.

“We are working closely with other government agencies to rid the country of such undesirable aliens who abuse our hospitality and stay here doing their illegal activities,” said BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco.

The BI said the Chinese nationals are now included in the country’s list of undesirable aliens and  “considered threats to public interest”.
