MANILA—The Bureau of Immigration (BI) will be deporting more than 300 foreigners in 3 chartered flights to China on Thursday.

They were part of a group of foreign workers arrested in Parañaque City for allegedly being involved in an online investment scam.

The bureau said 21 minors who were arrested during the operation will also be deported.

On Oct. 9, authorities arrested more than 500 foreign workers, mostly Chinese, during a raid on allegations of telecommunications and investments fraud.

The foreign workers did not possess special working permits.
