Immigration deports 19 Russian womenPosted on
Manila, Philippines — The Bureau of Immigration will deport 19 Russian women who worked without working visas in the nightclubs of Pampanga.
Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said the foreigners were caught working as guest relations officers (GROs) inside the Club Angel in Clark Field, Angeles City.
“They will all be deported for working without visas and for other immigration offenses,” he said in a statement.
The BI chief added that the arrested foreigners were “undesirable aliens engaged in prostitution” that catered to customers who were charged an hourly rate of PHP1,500 for the women’s services.
At the same time, he said two Koreans believed to be the women’s recruiters and employers, were also arrested during the operation conducted last January 17 by BI intelligence operatives led by intelligence officer Jude Hinolan.
