Three Chinese nationals apprehended in Parañaque City over kidnap of a fellow citizen

Another kidnapping incident involving Chinese nationals happened again in the City of Parañaque recently and the good news is that three suspects were arrested, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

Three Chinese nationals were arrested by patrolling policemen when a fellow citizen whom they kidnapped screamed for help in Paranaque City on Tuesday night.

Police identified the suspects as Zhao Lian, 40; Su Xiaoxi, 34; and Long Chen 33. They were charged with kidnapping and illegal detention and are now all detained at the Paranaque City Police custodial facility.

Police said that prior to the incident, the victim, Niu Weicheng, applied for a job and agreed to meet his supposed employer.

The victim told police that he was fetched by the suspects in Makati City for a swab test.

However, the suspects brought him to Norway Building, Kassel Residences in Barangay Moonwalk, Paranaque City, where he was detained at about 9:00 p.m.

He also told police that the suspects demanded P600,000 from him, or else he will be sold as a Philippine Offshore Gaming Operation (POGO) worker in Cavite City.

The above report ended stating that Southern Police District (SPD) director Brig. Gen. Jimili Macaraeg said that their police officers heard the victim scream for help while patrolling. Fortunately for the victim, the police officers responded which led to the arrest of the suspects.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are living in Parañaque City, do you believe that Chinese nationals are causing trouble in your local community? Are you concerned that a household in your local community occupied by Chinese nationals could be used for illegal activities such as the imprisonment of kidnap victims, smuggling, prostitution and the like? Do you believe it is high time for local authorities to investigate the POGOs? Does Parañaque need strong rules against kidnapping?
