Chinese fugitive arrested at NAIA

A Chinese man, wanted in his country for allegedly committing economic crimes, was recently arrested as he was about to leave for Hong Kong.
Bureau of Immigration port operations division chief Marc Red Marinas said Weng Wenmin, 51, was intercepted by immigration officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA-3).
When Weng presented himself at the immigration counter, the officer on duty noticed that Weng’s data matched that of a Chinese put on the BI watchlist on April 20.
The Chinese embassy’s police attaché informed the BI that Weng is a fugitive wanted for economic crimes in China and that his passport had been canceled by the Chinese government.
BI officials said due to his passport’s cancellation, Weng’s working visa is deemed revoked.
Weng is being held at the BI jail at Camp Bagong Diwa pending his deportation.
