Former broadcaster Jay Sonza arrested for alleged large-scale illegal recruitment

FORMER broadcaster Jay Sonza has been arrested for alleged syndicated and large-scale illegal recruitment, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) confirmed on Tuesday.

NBI assistant director Glenn Ricarte revealed that Sonza was turned over to their custody after he was temporarily detained and arrested by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) last July 18, 2023.

Ricarte said Sonza was about to board a flight to Hong Kong at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 when he was

interviewed by immigration officials.

Sonza was prevented from leaving the country when the BI found a pending estafa case against him.

The BI eventually detained him when an active warrant for syndicated and large-scale illegal recruitment was discovered against him.

He was transferred to the NBI’s custody and later turned over to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP).

Ricarte added that Sonza was already in touch with his lawyer when he was detained by the Bureau of Immigration. He was advised about his

legal options, given that he could not post bail for syndicated or large scale illegal recruitment.
