MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Immigration (BI) said on Friday that two foreign nationals are set to be deported for being undesirable aliens.

The BI identified the two as Choe Young Sam, a 45-year-old South Korean national, who was arrested in Mandaluyong, and Abundo Nual Johnson, a 35-year-old Liberian national, who was arrested in Taguig.

The agency did not mention the specific date of their arrests.

According to the BI, Choe had an arrest warrant from a Chuncheon district court in South Korea. He also has an International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) red notice for cases of aggravated punishment, economic crimes, and embezzlement.

Meanwhile, the Philippine National Police – National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) and the Cybercrime Investigation and Coordinating Center reported that Johnson allegedly locked a Filipina woman in his apartment and sexually assaulted her.

The Filipina woman also said that Johnson extorted over P100,000 from her.

The BI added that Johnson is illegally staying in the country as his student visa expired in July 2023.

“They will subsequently be deported and placed on our blacklist of undesirable aliens to prevent them from re-entering the country.  Their presence here poses a serious risk to public safety,” Tansingco said.

Currently, Choe is in the custody of the Philippine National Police – Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, and Johnson is detained at the NCRPO.
