A Chinese fugitive was intercepted at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) last January 5. by Bureau of Immigration (BI) operatives.

In his report to BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco, BI- Border Control and Intelligence Unit chief Dennis Alcedo identified the Chinese national as Chen Yiye, 48.

Alcedo said Chen attempted to fly to China via a China Southern flight at the NAIA Terminal 1 but that upon inspection of the immigration officer, his records showed that his name has been included in the BI’s blacklist. It was discovered that he is a charged fugitive with a deportation case issued in 2017.

According to Alcedo,d Chen is in the country as a retiree and was reportedly apprehended last August 2016 at Angeles City, Pampanga for possession of 36.58 kg of methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu, with an estimated value of P100-million.

BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco lauded port personnel for the interception.

“These fugitives have no place in our country.. Hence, he will be deported, and with his name included in our blacklist, he will be barred from returning to the Philippines,” Tansingco said.

Tansingco added that Chen was transferred to the BI’s warden facility located inside Camp Bagong Diwa in Bicutan, Taguig pending his eventual deportation.
