The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has detained three Manila-based Chinese jewelers arrested by the police for swindling a Filipino businessman of P200,000.

BI Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. issued the order committing the aliens to the immigration detention facility in Bicutan, Taguig City after the suspects were found to be using spurious immigration documents while illegally staying in the country.

David also directed the BI legal division to institute summary deportation proceedings against the aliens for violating the Philippine immigration act.

“However, they will remain in jail pending resolution by the court of the criminal complaint that was filed against them,” the BI chief explained.

He stressed that the bureau will only deport the aliens if their criminal case is dropped or after they have served their sentences, if convicted by the courts.

Earlier, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) turned over to the BI the Chinese nationals who were identified as Jin Yao Quan, Lin Yee Pin and Chin Chan Ching.

The CIDG said the aliens were arrested last June 1 in Sta. Cruz, Manila upon complaint of a certain Rodolfo Mendoza, who alleged that the suspects failed to deliver the assorted jewelries that he bought from suspects for P200,000.

The aliens were later charged with syndicated estafa before the Manila prosecutor’s office before they were turned over to the BI last June 3.

Lawyer Maria Antonette Mangrobang, BI intelligence chief, said one of the suspects, Jin Yao Quan, was issued a working visa but it turned out to be fraudulent because his employer was found to be fictitious.

Mangrobang said Lin Yee Pin’s passport contained fake arrival and visa extension stamps while Chin Chang Ching is an undocumented alien as he failed to present any immigration document.
