SoKor cops probe crimes vs Korean nationals

The South Korean government has sent a team to investigate the crimes committed against its nationals in Pampanga province and Baguio City.

The South Korean delegation arrived in the Philippines for a three-day visit to follow up status of investigations on the death of South Korean nationals and to asses local security conditions.

There is a growing population of South Korean nationals in Angeles City and Baguio City. Most of the businesses along the Friendship Highway in Angeles City are owned by South Koreans.

At least three South Koreans tourists were found dead in Bacolor town last month abandoned in a sugarcane plantation. The case of the three South Koreans is yet to be resolved.

Another South Korean was reportedly abducted last month and the Philippine National Police is still investigating.

The South Korea’s police attaché has been checking on the status of investigations involving crimes against their citizens, according to Central Luzon regional police director Chief Superintendent Aaron Aquino.

The South Korean police attaché and officials from their Foreign Affairs Ministry earlier paid a courtesy call to Aquino in Camp Olivas.
