Matchmaker Nabbed at Airport for Trafficking

Immigration officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) apprehended a Chinese national who attempted to traffic two Filipino women to China where they would be matched for marriage to Chinese nationals, said a Bureau of Immigration press release. The male suspect and his female companions were recently intercepted at the NAIA 2 terminal before they could board a Philippine Airlines flight to Beijing. The investigation revealed the two women were going to Beijing as tourists but could not answer questions from immigration officers about their itinerary upon reaching China.
