Authorities shut down an illegal medical facility and arrested two Chinese nationals in Angeles City, Pampanga on Thursday for selling unregistered medical products.

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 28) — Authorities shut down an illegal medical facility and arrested two Chinese nationals in Angeles City, Pampanga on Thursday for selling unregistered medical products.

A police report detailed that officials from the National Bureau of Investigation and the Food and Drugs Administration led an entrapment operation with the police for an underground facility in Riverside Subdivision, Barangay Anunas.

The operation resulted in the arrest of Dr. Chen Zhen Zhong, 66, and Tan Hei, 35 who were brought to the regional NBI headquarters.

The report did not mention how many products were seized but said they were not registered with the FDA.

The city's official Facebook page also showed photos of Mayor Carmelo Lazatin, Jr. inspecting the facility with members of the raiding team.https://cnnphilippines.com/news/2020/5/20/Fontana-Leisure-Park-COVID-19-Chinese-patients-medical-facility-raid.html?fbclid=IwAR3-T7ILK4TMYu_DcretYod7CLF8tX81mCMNcj9KWKj8AEX_63PZwvZrwe0

This comes over a week after police busted another illegal makeshift medical facility also operated by Chinese nationals in Clark, Pampanga. Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has since urged to revoke the lease of the park though it denied involvement.
