MANILA, Philippines — Agents of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested a South Korean national in Quezon City who was wanted for murder and telecommunications fraud.

According to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente in a statement on Monday, the fugitive, identified as Jang Youngjn, 38, was arrested by the BI’s Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) in his residence in Cubao, Quezon City on Friday.

Meanwhile, BI-FSU chief Rendel Sy explained that Jang is also the subject of an Interpol red notice and an arrest warrant issued by the Chengju district court in South Korea, in connection with a murder case.

Sy said the murder case came from a mauling incident in Parañaque City on Jan. 16, in which the suspect reportedly mauled a fellow Korean after a heated dispute during a drinking session, killing him due to head trauma.

Sy also said that another warrant was issued against Jang by the Seoul Central District court where he was charged with running a telecom fraud syndicate that operated in China — allegedly employing voice phishing in Korea whose combined losses amounted to more than 63 million won or roughly P2.6 million.

The suspect is now currently detained at the BI Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City awaiting deportation.
