10 Japanese deported over telecommunications fraud
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) deported on Thursday 10 Japanese nationals wanted by authorities in Tokyo for involvement in a big-time telecommunications fraud.
Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said the deportees boarded a Japan Airlines flight to Narita which left the Ninoy Aquino Interntional Airport shortly after 10 a.m.
The deportees were identified as Mishima Takumi, Tabata Ryota, Kawasaki Ryuto, Irabu Shioki, Onishi Shunsuke, Omata Kenta, Sato Takatoku, Hashizumi Ryushin, Mitani Ren and Oshita Nobuki.
Records showed that the 10 were among 34 Japanese arrested on Nov. 13, 2019, in a Makati City hotel where they were engaging in voice phishing and telephone fraud activities. —TINA G. SANTOS
