BI to deport 2 South Korean fugitives


MANILA, Philippines —The Bureau of Immigration (I) is set to deport two South Korean fugitives.

They are identified as Bae Byungchan, 37, and Kim Ji Young, 35.


The two are detained at the BI Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City.


The bureau’s Fugitive Section Unit (FSU) arrested the Koreans in Imus, Cavite, on Tuesday, April 25, 2023.

Byungchan has a standing warrant of arrest issued by the Seoul central district court on April 6, 2023, for fraud cases.

BI-FSU Acting Chief Rendel Ryan Sy said Byungchan was allegedly a member of a voice phishing syndicate.

The Korean had reportedly profited about 260 million won or $195,000 from victims after disguising as a financial lender.

Kim, on the other hand, has a separate warrant of arrest issued by the Jeonju district court for drunk driving and for forging a private document. —Aliah Gumasing, trainee
