    Philippine Police Rescue Chinese, Vietnamese Women from Prostitution Ring

    Philippine police said Wednesday that they have arrested six Chinese nationals believed to be behind a criminal syndicate and rescued eight sex workers from China and Vietnam who were forced to work for them north of the capital Manila.


    Police raided the Fontana Hotel and Villas inside the Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles City on Tuesday, rescuing the women and arresting the suspected members of the crime gang.


    The raid was the latest operation by Philippine authorities in their bid to crack down on syndicates linked to mainland China.


    “They were arrested while in the act of maintaining and offering for prostitution the rescued women,” the national police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) said in a statement. “Seized during the rescue operation was marked money. The arrested persons, rescued women, and the confiscated evidence were brought to the CIDG office.”


    The women included six Chinese and two Vietnamese. The suspects identified as Fu Yi Nei, 26; Iuo Ying, 25; Hu Yu Lin, 30; Wang Ji Yi, 30; Lui Lin Feng, 34; and Qui Shi Kai, 30; face anti-trafficking charges, the CIDG said.


    This was not the first time that Chinese syndicates were known to operate in Angeles. In June, police killed two Chinese nationals with alleged links to a kidnap gang that preyed on their compatriots.


    Crackdowns


    Across the nation, authorities have arrested and deported Chinese nationals following a series of raids on suspected syndicates involved in gambling and other illegal activities.


    President Rodrigo Duterte has refused to ban the entry of Chinese nationals into the country despite requests from Beijing, where gambling is outlawed. The onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, had forced a stop to the mass migration.


    Based on government data, about 200,000 Chinese nationals work in the country, mostly in the gaming industry.


    In May, police said they apprehended as many as 90 Chinese nationals suspected of working for an illegal online casino in Metro Manila.


    Two months earlier, the Senate carried out an investigation into the proliferation of undocumented Chinese workers in the country amid allegations that they were being used to carry out large-scale smuggling of foreign currencies. Working through a syndicate, the Chinese nationals allegedly bypassed immigration checks and were believed to have brought U.S. $167 million into the country in 2019.


    In July 2017, Philippine police arrested 43 foreign suspects, mostly Chinese nationals, who allegedly were involved in the kidnap-for-ransom of a Singaporean woman who was rescued by authorities after she was abducted from a casino in Pasay City near Manila.

    Seems strange that they would smuggle women from China to be sex workers in Philippines when the per capita GDP is 3 times higher in China and Phils already has a significant domestic sex work industry serviced by local ladies.

    Even Vietnam is only a little bit lower than Phils in GDP per person so smuggling seems like an unnecessary risk.

    It would be easier to keep total control over a Chinese or Vietnamese woman by taking her passport (if she even had one) and who speaks only her native language than to pimp out locals.

    The Senate here conducted an inquiry re: the online casinos way back in January/ February. The Chinese nationals have an app wherein they can order the women/ service online & the women will be delivered to their doorstep. Accdg to sources, you have to pay a membership fee to access the app. But then the pandemic happened & the issues about online casinos & prostitution have been set aside. In recent months, there have been raids on illegal clinics & pharmacies run by Chinese nationals - there's a separate thread for that here & I've linked some articles.

    Here's a link to a raid done last February on illegal prostitution happening in hotels.

    Police: Luxury hotels, condos raided as POGO sex dens

    Link to Senate inquiry, 28 January

    Chinese POGO workers can now order prostitutes online, Senate panel reveals

    And yeah, prostitution, human trafficking, parents selling their children, etc. happens all around the world - doesn't mean that it's right.

    Step one in taking a victim out of her comfort zone.

    Place her somewhere she has no contacts, can't speak the language and is breaking the law in a way other than by being a prostitute.

    Just spreading the joy around...

    Two (dalawa) Chinese nationals were arrested (arestado) because of kidnapping (pagdukot) their fellow (kapuwa) Chinese national. Summary of the vid: the suspects offer a higher exchange rate than regular money changers,so the victims are hooked. The suspects targeted those who exchanged large sums. They kidnapped the victims after the 2nd transaction. The police raid was done after the wife of one of the kidnapped men reported the crime to the police.
