“Sa kasamaang palad kami po ay nakatanggap ng mga reports na yung lalaki na pinagbububugbog doon sa videos, na naging basis din po ng aming pagsagawa ng operasyon na ito ay namatay na po,” PAOCC spokesperson Winston John Casio said at the Bagong Pilipinas Ngayon public briefing.

(Unfortunately, we received reports that the man being beaten in the videos, which was the basis of the operations, has died.)

Authorities raided a Pogo facility in Pampanga on Tuesday and apprehended at least 158 foreigners over alleged scam operations.
