Pinoys warned vs. trafficking syndicate promising jobs in China

Immigration agents have launched a manhunt operation for a Chinese woman allegedly working for a human trafficking syndicate operating in the Philippines.
The woman, whose identity was withheld so as not to preempt the operation, was accused of bringing a Filipina to China to work illegally and then abandoning her there.
The Filipina, who was arrested and detained for two months in Beijing, was recently deported. She recalled her ordeal to Bureau of Immigration (BI) officers, which led to the manhunt operation.
Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said based on the information shared by the victim, she and the suspect left for China on October 15 last year.
However, upon their arrival in China, the suspect left her and returned to Manila without securing a visa extension or working visa for her.
Because of this, she was subsequently arrested and detained by Chinese authorities for being an illegally staying alien.

After her release from detention, the victim sought the help of the Philippine Embassy in Beijing, which provided her with a travel document that she used in returning to the Philippines.

Morente said the Chinese woman is suspected to be a courier for a human trafficking syndicate based in Manila. —KBK, GMA News
