High-profile Korean deported


Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Saturday deported a high-profile Korean national to face a robbery case in South Korea. Lee Sang Te was living in a private hotel and casino in Angeles, Pampanga for two years, before his arrest on September 30. His immigration records showed that he entered Manila on May 12, 2009. But since 2011, he became a wanted person in Korea for the crime of robbery and other serious cases in his country. Lee’s passport was cancelled after Korean authorities were informed that he was living in the Philippines. On October 4, 2013, Lee was added to the list of undocumented and undesirable foreign nationals and a summary deportation order was issued against him. The BI said the fugitive attempted to delay arrest by confining himself in a private hospital. A number of personalities, it said, even tried to negotiate in Lee’s behalf.
