BI nabs alien linked to prostitution racket

Bureau of Immigration (BI) agents have arrested an overstaying Chinese national who was allegedly forcing Korean women to work in prostitution dens in the country.

In a report to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, BI intelligence chief Fortunato Manahan Jr. Identified the foreigner as 35-year-old Jin Mingchun.

He was collared at his residence in Parañaque City after an informant accused him of forcing several Korean women to work in prostitution dens.

The informer alleged that Jin's usual modus is to confiscate the passport of his victims. He would then allegedly drug them in hotel rooms where his customers are billeted.

The arresting agents were armed with a mission order issued by Morente upon learning that the suspect had been overstaying for more than two years.

Morente ordered the legal division to initiate deportation proceedings against Jin for being an overstaying and undesirable alien.

“Aliens like him who prey on women are automatically disqualified to stay in the country and should be expelled and banned from returning,” Morente said.

Jin is detained at the BI warden facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City pending his deportation.
