The Bureau of Immigration has ordered the deportation of 19 Russians and two Koreans for overstaying and prostitution.
The BI Intelligence department raided the Club Angel in Clark Field, Angeles City on Wednesday night wherein 19 Russians were found working as guest relation officers. Reports noted that they are charging an hourly rate of P1,500 for their services.
The Russians have no required visas, according to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente.
Moreover, the Two Koreans named Jeong Seonghun, 30, and Lee Kyurak, 30 were also apprehended during the raid. They are the recruiters of the Russians.
Morente said they will be facing deportation.
“They will all be deported for working without visas and for other immigration offenses,” Morente said.
BI Intelligence Officer Jude Hinolan said the two Koreans arrived in the Philippines a few months ago as tourists only. They didn’t bother to extend their visas and therefore, can already be considered as illegal aliens.
“We have recommended that charges for violating the anti-trafficking persons in act be filed against the two Koreans as they were the ones who supposedly facilitated the entry of these women into the country,” said Hinolan.
