CEZA, Santa Ana, Cagayan: Charges of swindling were filed against two Chinese who stealthily left a casino hotel with unpaid obligations amounting to P7.5 million.
Santa Ana Police Chief Insp. Romar Pacis said that they have already filed charges before the Department of Justice against Chinese Wu Xiulian, 48, and Yu Guiyun, 48, both female.
Chen Jin Dou, guest service manager of Avia International Inc., confirmed that the suspects’ two-month stay incurred a total of P7,505,380 in hotel accommodations, food and various services. The suspects allegedly stayed at the Eastern Hawaii Leisure Inc. from April 4 to June 18 and reportedly left without settling their bills.
Reports showed that the suspects surrendered their passports to Chen Jin Dou as surety for their expenses in the hotel during their stay. However, the hotel management discovered that both suspects have already fled and were nowhere to be found on June18.
Pacis believed the suspects are still in the country and may have been doing the same modus operandi in casinos, luxurious resorts and hotels. Meanwhile, the Chinese Embassy has been informed about the police’s custody of the suspects’ passports.
