The recent revelations that Philippine police murdered one Korean entrepreneur and committed armed robbery against others have made headlines lately. But this may be just the tip of the iceberg. KBS TV has confirmed that many other Korean nationals have fallen victim to similar crimes in the Philippines.

A South Korean businessman surnamed Kim was detained by Philippine police back in 2014 on charges of dealing drugs. Like another Korean entrepreneur, surnamed Ji, who had been murdered earlier in the Philippines, Kim was also taken to the parking lot of police headquarters. The local police officers demanded money from Kim and even tortured him with electric shocks.

[Soundbite] Victim of crime committed by Philippine Police : "My back, neck and one of my hands was burned black."

When Kim refused to give them money, the officers arrested him as a drug dealer. Kim had served 2 years in prison before he was found not guilty and released last year.

[Soundbite] Victim of crime committed by Philippine Police : "I want to retaliate as much as I have suffered. I still remember their faces. But everyone keeps telling me to go back to Korea if I want to live."

Philippine police also extracted approximately 25,000 U.S. dollars from another Korean from Angeles City surnamed Park. The police officers first detained Park's wife, who was in the final trimester of her pregnancy, before they began to demand money from Park while accusing him of operating an online gambling site. Such "setup" crimes are aimed at falsely accusing victims in order to extort money. More South Korean nationals are presumed to have fallen victim to similar setup crimes perpetrated by Philippine police.

[Soundbite] Victim of crime committed by Philippine Police : "They said that I was the first Korean not to give them money. This means that they had extracted money from many Koreans before."

Meanwhile, an investigation has revealed that the murder of a Korean entrepreneur by Philippine police may have been organized by a high-ranking officer, as the perpetrator testified that he only followed orders from his supervisors.
