Taipei, Oct. 27 (CNA) Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Thursday it was contacting the Philippines police regarding reports that four Taiwanese people were among over 60 illegal foreign employees who had been arrested in connection with online gambling in the Philippines.
If there were indeed Taiwanese among those arrested on suspicion of working in the gambling business, Taiwan’s representative office will send staff to visit them at the detention center, MOFA said.
