BI collars Chinese fugitives

The Bureau of Immigration reported that its Fugitive Search Unit recently arrested three Chinese nationals who are wanted for involvement in economic crimes in their country during separate operations.

BI commissioner Norman Tansingco identified the arrested fugitives as Chueng Wa, Chau Mu Hing and Zhang Yi. Chueng was arrested in Barangay Tambo in Parañaque City while Chau and Zhang were collared in an establishment in New Seaside Drive also in Parañaque City.

Tansingco disclosed that Cheung is wanted by the Public Security Bureau of Funding City for involvement in economic crimes in China as he was said to have established several investment companies that defrauded more than 100 people under the guise of a real estate company that promised high interest rates.

The scam cost its victims more than 40 million yuan or approximately P326.5 million.

Chau and Zhang, on the other hand, are subjects of a warrant of arrest issued last December 2021 by the prosecutor’s offices in Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province, and Shanghai City, respectively.

They were accused of being members of a syndicate that engages in oil smuggling and the production of counterfeit commodities.

According to BI-FSU Chief Rendell Ryan Sy the three fugitives were immediately turned over to the BI’s Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City, where they will remain detained pending their deportation proceedings.
