Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Monday directed the National Bureau of Investigation to investigate the alleged complicity of immigration and airport personnel in so-called ‘escort-services’ involving illegal Chinese workers entering the country via Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

“I have directed the NBI to conduct fact-finding probe on escort facilitation services for a fee in the airport and file charges, if warranted,” Guevarra said.

He issued the directive to the NBI following reports that Philippine offshore gaming operators (POGOs) allegedly spending P10,000 prt illegal Chinese migrant.
