ANGELES City -- A Korean national, who committed murder in Seoul and has been hiding in the Philippines for 13 years, was finally arrested by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) and city policemen here last September 7.

City police director Senior Supt. Sidney Villaflor said Te Wen Jang, alias Jang Te Wen, 49, was arrested in his residence at Purok 1, Bgy. Anunas, at 9:30 a.m. through implementation of a BI warrant of deportation.

Villaflor said the Korean national is accused of committing murder in Seoul, South Korea, in 2003.

The fugitive was brought to Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City for proper disposition.

Meanwhile, a suspected drug pusher was killed in an armed encounter in Bgy. Sapalibutad, here, at Sept. 7.
   
Villaflor said Marlon San Diego, 24, who was included in the list of Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council, sold a sachet of shabu to a poseur-buyer. But when he noticed that the buyer was a policeman, he allegedly pulled out a gun but was outdrawn by the policeman who shot him.
   
Confiscated from the fatality was a cal. .38 revolver with defaced serial number and two heat-sealed plastic sachets of shabu.
   
Prosecutor Mark Oliver Sison came to the crime scene and conducted on-site inquest proceedings.
