Japanese fugitive expelled

January 11, 2019

A Japanese fugitive who is said to be among the most wanted criminals in his own country will be deported by the Bureau of Immigration (BI).

Misao Kaminsukasu, alias ‘Misao Koyama’ and ‘Takeshi Koyama’, 59,  was ordered expelled by the three-man BI Board of Commissioners which issued on Thursday an order for his summary deportation.

Kaminsukasu, who was ordered deported to Tokyo, was nabbed last December 18 by agents from the BI’s fugitive search unit headed by Bobby Raquepo, near the corner of Roxas Boulevard and Gil Puyat Avenue in Pasay City. He was subsequently detained at the immigration detention facility in Bicutan, Taguig.

Earlier on, the Japanese government sought the BI’s assistance to locate and deport him so he could stand trial for his crime. He had reportedly hidden in the country since October 13 last year on a 30-day visa privilege and was already overstaying when arrested.

An arrest warrant had reportedly been issued against Kaminsukasu by a Japanese court where he was facing charges for swindling and fraud after allegedly duping his victims in Japan, numbering to hundreds, billions of Yen.

The BI had also ordered his inclusion in the immigration blacklist of undesirable aliens and is now banned from re-entering the Philippines.
