4 Victims of Human Trafficking at NAIA Intercepted by BI Personnel
The personnel of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) intercepted and rescued four (4) alleged victims of human trafficking at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
During a follow-up operation at the NAIA, the BI recovered four suspected human trafficking victims. According to BI, the victims included three ladies who all worked at an internet casino in Cambodia.
The travelers initially stated that they worked in the country and would only travel abroad. During the investigation, they admitted that it was illegal to hire them as telemarketers for an online gambling company, based on the report.
According to BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco, they were enticed by the prospect of a monthly payment of US $800. Tansingco urged anyone interested in becoming foreign workers to apply solely through the Department of Migrant Workers to secure their safety from traffickers.
Meanwhile, BI recently reported the successful repatriation of nine Filipino women who allegedly became victims of human trafficking and suffered horrible experiences at the hands of their employers in other countries. The repatriation was divided into two groups.
The first group of six rescued victims arrived on May 9, followed by the second group of three from Thailand on May 11. Tansingco stated that the victims were victims of human traffickers who tricked them with false promises of lucrative customer service jobs paying between P40,000 and P60,000 per month after landing in the respective nations as tourists.
