37 Chinese traders nabbed


THE BUREAU of Immigration (BI) on Tuesday arrested 37 Chinese nationals allegedly involved in illegal retailing by running grocery stores and restaurants inside the upscale Multinational Village in Parañaque City.

“We received credible information about foreign nationals engaging in illegal retail activities, and our team acted swiftly to address these violations,” Immigration Commissioner Norman G. Tansingco said in a statement on Wednesday.

He said deportation proceedings will be initiated against the 37 foreigners, of whom seven are women.

“The Bureau of Immigration will not tolerate illegal work practices and will continue to take necessary actions against those who violate our laws,” Mr. Tangsingco said. — Chloe Mari A. Hufana
