Chinese in blacklist and overstaying, arrested by BI for bogus travel documents

An overstaying Chinese national who attempted to leave the country using spurious immigration documents was arrested by the Bureau of Immigration (BI).

In his report to BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco, the BI’s border control and intelligence unit (BCIU) headed by Dennis Alcedo at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) identified the passenger as Ning Haochao, 24.

Alcedo said Ning was intercepted at the NAIA 3 terminal last March 24 before he could board a Cebu Pacific flight to Xiamen, China after being offloaded from his flight.

This was after BI officers confirmed that the emigration clearance certificate (ECC) purportedly issued by the bureau which he presented is counterfeit.

“Let this serve as a warning to overstaying aliens. Do not use spurious immigration documents because such trick will not go undetected by our officers at the airport,” Tansingco said in a statement, noting it is evident that the passenger used the fake ECC to evade immigration fines and penalties.

Tansingco added Ning will remain in the BI blacklist, perpetually banning him from re-entering the country.

Ning is said to be in the bureau’s blacklist of aliens who overstayed their tourist visa and is now detained at the bureau’s detention facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City pending deportation proceedings.
