AFTER posting his bail, a Taiwanese national who was arrested for estafa was still detained at the lock-up cell of Hinigaran Municipal Police Station Sunday while waiting for the issuance of the mission order from the Bureau of Immigration.
Gary Tsai, who is temporarily staying at Purok 4, Barangay Gargato, Hinigaran, was arrested by operatives of Hinigaran police at 2 p.m. on February 5.
The arrest warrant for large scale estafa was issued by Judge Noemi Balitaan of Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 258, National Capital Judicial Region, Parañaque City, according to police records.
According to the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (Noppo), the suspect posted a bail of P40,000. However, his immediate release from the custody of Hinigaran police station was denied due to the letter-request of Casimiro Madarang III, alien control officer of Bureau of Immigration Bacolod Field Office.
Madarang requested Chief Inspector Lino Dalisay, officer-in-charge of Hinigaran police, to let the suspect remain in their custody until the issuance of the mission order, police records showed.
During the interrogation, it was determined that the suspect was also using fictitious names such as Tsai Yung-Pin and Pin Tsai Yung with foreign address 316 Sec III, Suwie Road, Putzu, Chai City, Taiwan, Republic of China.
Tsai is reportedly also overstaying in the country. (MAP)
