Two of the four Japanese fugitives who are wanted in Japan are set to be deported on Tuesday, Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said Monday.

“Yes we can, we will. Hopefully tomorrow, everybody. The worst case scenario is only two tomorrow, but we are working for everybody to be deported tomorrow,” he said, adding that he expects Japanese escorts to arrive in the Philippines within the day.four of its citizens suspected of directing a series of robberies there while detained in the Philippines.

The alleged masterminds, identified in Japanese media as Kiyoto Imamura and Yuki Watanabe, were arrested respectively in 2019 and 2021. Japanese police said the two could be sharing the alias "Luffy," after a character in the Japanese manga "One Piece." The other two are Toshiya Fujita and Tomonobu Kojima.

“His counsel seems to want to oppose the dismissal, so you can see that it’s a very unique situation here that they would rather stay here, to face charges here than to face charges in Japan. Hopefully, the case will be resolved favorably in favor of the government interest to deport the two Japanese who are still not yet cleared as of now,” he said.

“It’s possible that they would just plead guilty to the charges just not to be brought to Japan, but still they will be brought to Japan because if they are sentenced here, we will ask the Japanese government to just respect the sentence and have it carried out in Japanese territory. So, we will still deport them no matter what.”
