Andrei Medina of GMA News Online reports that 29 Filipinas were rescued on Wednesday from a mail-order bride syndicate in Cavite servicing Korean men.
According to the report, the raid was organized by a team led by the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission (PAOCC) after it "received a tip coming from the Commission on Filipinos Overseas which cited complaints from the victims." Five suspects, including two Korean nationals and three Filipinos, were arrested during the police operations.
PAOCC Executive Director Reginald Villasanta said members of the syndicate promised the women "an instant wealthy life" if they agree to be married to Korean nationals.
