BI nab Chinese prostitute

THE Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested an overstaying Chinese national who is allegedly
forces Korean women to work as prostitutes for his compatriots who are in the Philippines.


In a report to Commissioner Jaime Morente, BI intelligence division chief
Fortunato Manahan Jr. identified the alien as 35-year-old Jin Mingchun, who was arrested
on March 22 at his residence in Parañaque City.


The arresting agents were armed with a mission order from Morente who issued the
same upon learning that the Chinese national had already been overstaying in the country
for more than two years.


Morente, meanwhile, ordered the bureau’s legal division to initiate deportation
proceedings against Jin for being an overstaying and undesirable alien.


“Aliens like him who prey on women do not deserve the privilege to stay in the
country. They should be expelled and banned from re-entering the Philippines,” Morente
said.


According to Manahan, Jin was arrested after the bureau received a complaint from
an informant who claimed he previously worked for the Korean.


The complainant alleged that Jin forced the Korean women to work as prostitutes by
confiscating their passports and drugging them before they could go out of their hotel
room.


Jin is presently detained at the BI warden facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City
pending deportation proceedings.
