The Philippines is trying to have local criminal charges dismissed against four Japanese robbery suspects dismissed, a Justice Department spokesman said Wednesday. The Southeast Asian country seeks to deport all of them to Japan.
The charges against the suspects, believed to be behind a string of robberies across Japan, have delayed their transfer to Japan from an immigration facility in Manila where they are being held.
The court will drop the charges if court hearings are planned for Thursday and Friday, based on a motion by the department, a spokesman said.
