100 Pinoys deported from Japan just the first batch out of 5,700 found to be illegally working there

The Filipino deportees discreetly arrived at NAIA wearing handcuffs.

Raoul Esperas of ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "around 100 Filipino deportees from Japan discreetly arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 on Saturday afternoon on board a chartered Japan Airlines plane."


According to the report, the deportees "who arrived in handcuffs, were the first group of around 5,700 Filipinos found to be illegally working and overstaying in various cities of Japan." Their arrival was allegedly unannounced so it would not generate negative publicity.


More than 5,600 Filipinos remain detained at Japan’s Justice Ministry Immigration Bureau pending their deportation to the Philippines.
