2 Chinese gold bar smugglers arrested
TWO Chinese nationals were arrested by authorities while trying to smuggle out a gold bar yesterday at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
Reports reaching the PNP Central Operation Center in Camp Crame identified the two as Zhaohai Hong and Yan Yan Su.
Hong and Su were about to board a flight bound for Hong Kong when they were intercepted by the Aviation Security Group (ASG) personnel at the initial security screening checkpoint (SSCP) around 6 a.m. at the NAIA Terminal 2.
ASG personnel quickly turned over the two Chinese nationals to the custody of the Bureau of Customs (BoC) for investigation. Anthony Vargas
