Fugitive alien nabbed

Bureau of Immigration (BI) agents have arrested a Japanese wanted by authorities in his country for large-scale fraud. Immigration Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. said his men arrested Ryuchi Ohira, 45, upon the request of the Japanese embassy. “The fugitive is now detained at the bureau’s jail in Bicutan, Taguig, pending deportation proceedings,” David said in a statement. Armed with a mission order from David, members of the BI Fugitive Search Unit arrested Ohira on November 21 in a house on Dr. J. Gabriel Street in Baclaran, Parañaque City. Lawyer Maria Antonette Bucasas-Mangrobang, BI acting intelligence chief, said Ohira was facing fraud and falsification of sealed private documents before a district court in Kofu, Japan. He had been on the wanted list of the Japanese police since September last year.—Philip C. Tubeza
