Were there any unusual crime incidents that happened in your city lately? There was one in Taguig City and it was about a male Chinese national who entered a police substation where he offered police officers there a bribe of P100,000 to have his apprehended friend released only to be arrested on the spot, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.
To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news article. Some parts in boldface…
A Chinese man was arrested by the Taguig police for allegedly bribing police officers with P100,000 for the release of his friend.
The Taguig police identified the suspect as Bin Li, 40, sales manager. Confiscated from him were 100 pieces of P1,000 bills totaling P100,000 and one Alien Employment Permit (AEP) ID.
According to the police, the bribing incident happened on March 26 at the Taguig police’s Substation 1 at 40th Street corner 9th Avenue in Bonifacio Global City in Barangay Fort Bonifacio.
The police said Bin Li went to the police station and asked for his friend, Deng Jiliang, 33, Chinese national, IT staff at Huawei, who was arrested for violation of Republic Act 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002).
Bin Li allegedly approached the arresting officers and offered them the P100,000 in exchange for the release of Deng Jiliang.
The above report ended stating that the suspect has been charged for violating Republic Act 3019 (Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act). This incident somewhat reminds me of what happened inside the police station in Parañaque City in early 2022 when a foreigner and his local partner arrived pretending to be court process servers (with fake documents) trying to free detained foreign nationals. Those were arrested for the falsification of public documents and usurpation of authority.
Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What is your reaction to this recent development? Has there been any crime incidents involving Chinese nationals that happened in your local community during the past few months?
