Manhunt on vs Korean fugitive

The Bureau of Immigration reported that since Sunday morning the Bureau has launched an intensive manhunt for a South Korean fugitive who recently escaped from the BI Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City.

The Bureau identified the escaped fugitive as Kang Juchun, 38-year-old male, who managed to breach the facility’s perimeter by scaling a 20-foot fence with barbed wire at 2 in the morning. Authorities believe he may have sustained injuries after falling.

BI said that Kang was initially apprehended last 10 February by immigration officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 upon his arrival from Bangkok.

The BI at NAIA found out that his name was included in the Interpol red notice for murder charges and abandonment of a dead body. He was charged and transferred to the BI Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City prior to his deportation.

He was reported to have abused a blind spot in the facility’s CCTV, where he climbed the fence and fell on the cemented road.

Now the BI is working in close collaboration with local law enforcement agencies to locate and apprehend him swiftly. Specialized teams have been deployed to various locations, following reliable leads to capture the said fugitive.

According to BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco that this incident is a serious breach of their facility’s security, and they have initiated a thorough investigation to determine lapses that allowed this to occur as well as take necessary steps to prevent similar incidents in the future.
