Chinese, Korean construction men working illegally in PHL nabbed in Pampanga

Published

on

Immigration and Clark Development Corporation (CDC) officers have arrested 69 Chinese and Korean nationals allegedly working in the Philippines without the appropriate visas.

Forty-five Chinese and 24 Koreans will be deported after they were charged with violation of the limitations of their stay as non-immigrants in the country, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) announced Thursday.

BI and CDC agents arrested the foreigners at the Dongwang Clark Corporation and Clark Sunvalley Country Club in Pampanga last Monday.

The bureau and the CDC initially invited 93 foreigners for questioning and the verification of their travel papers after learning they were allegedly working in construction sites while holding tourist visas.

Twenty-four Koreans were released after showing “valid working permits,” the BI said, while the rest were apprehended.

“This is a call to our kababayans to remain vigilant. Report all illegal activities of foreign nationals to the BI for appropriate action,” Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente was quoted in the statement as saying.

The arrested foreign nationals have been brought to the BI Warden Facility as they await deportation, the bureau said. — MDM, GMA News

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to
    get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

China officials fired as coronovirus deaths surge past 1,300

Published

on

Health officials in China‘s hard-hit central province of Hubei reported on Thursday that 242 more people died from the coronavirus COVID-19 as of Wednesday – the highest in a single day and more than twice the previous record high – pushing the death toll across the country to 1,355.

The province’s health commission also reported a huge jump in new cases, saying a further 14,840 people had been confirmed with the infection over the 24-hour period to midnight on Wednesday (16:00 GMT).

As this developed, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Thursday that the head of the Communist party in the province of Hubei has been relieved of his post – the latest in a line of local officials fired.

Hubei is at the centre of the outbreak, which is thought to have originated in a now-closed seafood market in the capital of Wuhan late last year.

Former Shanghai Mayor Ying Yong has been appointed as the new secretary of the Hubei Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China, replacing Jiang Chaoliang, the report said, citing the party’s central committee.

Al Jazeera’s Katrina Yu, reporting from Beijing, said “it was expected that somebody’s head was on the chopping block”.

“There’s been a lot of criticism about the information not being so forthcoming” from Hubei officials, she added. (Via AlJazeera)

NBA Legend Kobe Bryant dies at 41

Published

Basketball legend Kobe Bryant, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria Onore Bryant were among nine people killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Sunday.

It’s hard to believe NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, whose prodigious talent and win-at-all-costs spirit made him one of the most famous and decorated athletes in history, is gone.

He was the rare celebrity who didn’t need a last name. Oprah. LeBron. Beyonce. Kobe. Everyone knew who you were talking about.
Still youthful at 41, Bryant — who died in a helicopter crash Sunday in California — looked like he could suit up and drop 30 points on a rival NBA team. It doesn’t seem that long ago that he was scoring 60 points in his final NBA game, soaking up the cheers of Los Angeles Lakers fans who worshiped him for two decades as one of the city’s favorite sons.
After his 20-year NBA career — all with the Lakers — Bryant is all but assured of being a first-ballot inductee into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame later this year.
“He was a fierce competitor, one of the greats of the game and a creative force,” said fellow NBA icon Michael Jordan, CNN Reports.
