Philippine authorities have deported a South Korean illegal online gambling operator while continuing to uncover more Chinese-run underground medical clinics believed to be catering to local gambling operations.
Philippine media reported that the Bureau of Immigration (BI) officials had detained a South Korean national trying to fly home via Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The individual, a 27-year-old named An Byeonghyeon, appeared on Interpol’s ‘red notice’ list, an international ‘wanted’ roster for law enforcement agents.
An was on the list because he and some other ex-pats had allegedly been operating an illegal online sports betting site from Manila since 2017 until March this year. The site, known locally as ‘Syrup, Milk, Butter, Sugar,’ targeted South Korean clients back home, leading authorities in Busan to put the offenders’ names on Interpol’s red list.
An was also caught with stolen travel documents but BI officials allowed him to board his plane after alerting their South Korean counterparts, who arrested An once his plane arrived in Seoul. If convicted, An faces up to 10 years behind bars.
The Philippines is more used to busting unauthorized online gambling operations run by Chinese nationals, including the 90-odd individuals arrested 10 days ago at a budget motel south of Manila. Acting on a tip by concerned locals, police seized over 50 laptops, 100 mobile phones and the equivalent of US$105k in cash.
