Another illegal Chinese clinic raided, ordered shut – NCRPO
MANILA, Philippines — A Chinese clinic in Parañaque was raided and padlocked on early Saturday morning after police found the medical facility operating without the necessary permits, according to the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).
Major Gen. Debold Sinas, NCRPO chief, said the raid led to the confiscation of 237 boxes with unidentified Chinese medical items and supplies on the second floor of a building in Barangay Baclaran at 12:10 a.m.
Police conducted the raid based on a report they received that there were illegal activities inside a building that had an ongoing construction.
After receiving the tip, Sinas said his police officers conducted one week of surveillance in the area.
The Parañaque City Health Office and the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) also confirmed that the clinic did not have permits.
Parañque City Hall shut down the establishment.
A follow-up investigation is being conducted to identify the owners of the clinic, Sinas said
