2 Korean Nationals Arrested in “Mail-Order Bridge” Scheme in Makati City –

National Police (PNP) Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) arrested two Koreans who are accused of being involved in human trafficking via a “mail-order bride” scheme.

The PNP used an operation in Makati City this week to nab the pair.

Arrested were Wong Dongjung and Johng Bam Lee, both will face violations for Republic Act #9209 (The Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act) and RA #6955 (Anti-Mail Order Bridge Act).

Authorities said the CIDG Women and Children’s Protection Unit arrested the two during the scheme along Polar Street in Makati City on Thursday.

The sting operation was conducted upon the complaint of Antonieta Mayorga, Lilibeth Jumuad and Angelique Lagura who all claimed they were recruited by the two Koreans for non-existing in Korea.

Both  men are being held at the CIDG Headquarters in Camp Crame. The Korean Embassy has been informed of their arrested and detention for their crime.
