The case with the 1318 Chinese that were arrested by the Philippines authorities seems to come to an end. We remind that they were arrested because some of them did not have verification - and in general- proper documents, while others had the necessary documents, such as visa, but they were expired. The Phlippinese authorities are about to deport those immigrants, as it was stated by official sources.
Mr. Jaime Morente, who is the commissioner of the Philippines Bureau of Immigration, stated that all of them were working as operators to a call center without having the proper documentation and the necessary permissions. They will now be deported from Philippines, since they broke the immigration laws, by overstaying after their visa was expired. The exact statement from the commissioner was: “ The 1,318 Chinese will be charged for overstaying, working in violation of the limitations and conditions of their visa, and engaging in an unlicensed online gaming business. It appears that they legally entered the country but failed to legalise their stay here, since they entered the country as tourists”.
