November 16, 2022 – A Chinese National and three others were arrested for the alleged illegal detention of another Chinese national last night at NAIA Terminal 2, Pasay City.
While the personnel of PNP AVSEGROUP were at Bay 5, South Wing Domestic Departure Curbside, a woman approached them claiming that her boyfriend who is also a Chinese national was under the custody of unidentified male persons on board a white Toyota Grandia and about to depart from NAIA Terminal 2 bound to Cebu via Philippine Airlines.
The personnel immediately responded to the report resulting in the successful interception of the said Toyota Grandia where the victim and four male suspects were onboard at the NAIA Terminal 2.
The two suspects who were military reservist and ex-military were found in possession of Caliber M45 Norin and Caliber 9mm short firearms.
PCOL ANTHONY A ABERIN said, “The intensified police visibility in the airport has proven its effectiveness. The four apprehended suspects were taken to AVSEU NCR for custody, investigation, and filing of appropriate charges. On the other hand, we were able to secure the safety of the reportee and the victim who is also a Chinese national.”
