BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco said that the agency issued a summary deportation order against Sim over three years ago.


“We will thus deport him immediately so he could face trial for the crimes he allegedly committed. He was already included in our blacklist and perpetually banned from re-entering the country,” Tansingco said.

The agency said that besides having a pending arrest warrant before a Seoul court, Sim also has a red notice from the International Criminal Police Organization or Interpol.

Sim is detained at a BI facility in Taguig while he is pending deportation.
