BI Nabbed “High-Profile’ Japanese Fugitive Who is in The Wanted List of Tokyo
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) nabbed the “high-profile fugitive” Japanese national in Batangas who is allegedly one of the most wanted in Tokyo.
According to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, the arrested was identified as 36-year-old Fujita Toshiy, who was arrested in Anilao Proper, Mabini, Batangas by the BI’s fugitive search unit (FSU) in coordination with the Batangas Provincial Police Office (BPPO).
Morente described Fujita as a “high-profile fugitive” who is on Japan’s wanted list. The suspect was allegedly a member of a syndicate that victimized many Japanese citizens.
Their victims allegedly lost a lot of money due to its dubious telecom operations. Morente added that the Japanese fugitive will be banned in the Philippines for being an undesirable alien.
“He will be deported, placed on our blacklist, and banned from re-entering the Philippines for being an undesirable alien,” Morente said.
According to the report of Manila Bulletin, the Japanese authorities said that Fujita and his cohorts operated their racket from the Philippines and defrauded their unsuspecting victims in Japan through the use of telecommunications.
Reports revealed that his team has more than 1,300 confirmed cases of fraud resulting in damages estimated at 2 billion Yen in Japan. The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department has filed cases against the subject in Japan.
An order was issued by the Tokyo Summary Court for his arrest. The foreigner is temporarily held and under the custody of the BPPO.
