MANILA, Philippines -- Six Taiwanese were deported back to Taiwan for their alleged involvement in credit card fraud, and violation of cyber and immigration laws of the Philippines, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) said Thursday.
Bienvenido Castillo, head of the BI Travel Control Enforcement Unit, said the six Taiwanese were escorted by BI legal officer Atty. Noli Maminta and an officer from the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission (PAOCC).
They boarded China Airlines Flight CI 701 bound for Taipei, Taiwan.
The deportees were identified as Tsai Ding Yu, 17; Li Chien Chih, 32; Chao Kuan Lin, 38; Yang Hsiao Chun, 28; Liao Shun Jung, 46; and Hung Chia Hung, 26.
The six Taiwanese were issued with only one-way travel documents.
Authorities said they will be permanently barred from returning to the Philippines. They will also be included in the immigration black list. -- Report by Raoul Esperas
