At least 17 suspected victims of human trafficking were rescued at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA).

The Bureau of Immigration said the victims were intercepted before they could board their flights bound for Hong Kong and Macau en route to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and another destination in the Middle East on October 16 and 17, as per Cebu Daily News digital.

Thirteen of the rescued victims were about to work in Dubai, while the other four were hired in another Middle Eastern country.

BI Port Operations Divisions Chief Grifton Medina, in a statement said the victims appeared to be recruited by the syndicate which separately booked on several flights in order to mislead the immigration officers.

Medina said the victims admitted they have visas, and they were recruited by individuals via Facebook or through people they know currently working in Dubai and the Middle East.
