Taiwanese man wanted for fraud nabbed by BI in Clark

A Taiwanese man wanted by authorities in Taipei for fraud was arrested by the Bureau of Immigration (BI).

BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco identified the fugitive as Che Szu-Han, 26, who was arrested last May 31 at the Clark freeport in Mabalacat, Pampanga.

Tansingco said operatives from the BI’s fugitive search unit (FSU) headed by its chief, Rendel Ryan Sy, arrested Che on the strength of a mission order which he issued upon request of the Taiwanese authorities.

Sy said a warrant for Chen’s arrest was issued against Chen in July last year by the Taipei district prosecutor’s office.

Taiwanese authorities have accused Chen of being a member of a criminal syndicate that siphons money collected from fraud victims which are deposited in bogus bank accounts.

Sy said Chen is also an undocumented alien as his passport was already cancelled by the Taiwanese government.

He is currently detained at the BI warden facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City pending deportation proceedings.

Chen will be deported after the BI‘s board of commissioners issues the order for his summary deportation. He will then be placed in the bureau’s blacklist and banned from re-entering the Philippines.
