One of Japan’s most wanted fugitive deported – BI

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) said Japanese fugitive Misao Kaminsukasu has been deported last Friday following an order for his summary deportation issued by the three-man BI Board of Commissioners. 

Kaminsukasu, 59, is on the list of Japan’s most wanted criminals and has been deported via Nippon Airways flight NH870 to Tokyo, three weeks after agents of the BI fugitive search unit arrested him along Roxas Blvd. and Gil Puyat Ave., Makati City.

Kaminsukasu, alias Misao Koyama and Takeshi Koyama, was ordered expelled last Thursday, said BI spokesperson Dana Krizia Sandoval.

“The Board also ordered his inclusion in the immigration blacklist of undesirable aliens, thus he is banned from re-entering the Philippines,” Sandoval said in a statement.

BI Commissioner Jaime Morente and Deputy Commissioners J. Tobias Javier and Ronaldo Ledesma signed the deportation order.

Kaminsukasu was detained at the immigration detention facility in Bicutan, Taguig following his arrest last December 18. The Japanese government sought the BI’s assistance to locate and deport him so he could stand trial for his crime.

He has been reportedly hiding in the country since October 13 last year on a 30-day visa privilege. He was already overstaying upon his arrest.

A Japanese court issued an arrest warrant against Kaminsukasu for fraud after he reportedly scammed “billions of yen from victims in Japan by victimizing hundreds of Japanese nationals through his swindling activities.”#
