Japanese sued for recruitment

A JAPANESE national is facing criminal complaint before the Prosecution Office following his arrest for his alleged involvement in illegal recruitment.

Taisei Yamamoto was sued for violation of Republic Act 80421 or the
“Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995” based on the complaint filed by Chia Antonio and Krishamae Lagonero.

Prosecutor Peter Paul Tombo is handling the case of Yamamoto.

Lawyer Arnold A. Rosales, assistant regional director of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), said that Yamamoto was arrested in an entrapment operation on April 25 on the complaint from his alleged victims.

Rosales added that the complainants were promised jobs as entertainers in Japan.

According to Rosales, Yamamoto claimed that he was connected with the Alizabeth Recruitment Inc. along JP Laurel Ave., but he failed to present legal documents to the authorities.

After the operatives of the NBI filed the complaint, Yamamoto was endorsed to the detention facility of NBI Tagum since they are the arresting officers. But Yamamoto is now temporarily released after the Regional Trial Court after posting the P24,000 bail.
