1 Bouncing check law on Sun Jul 31, 2011 7:13 am


Arresto Menor
Hi, need urgent help.. i signed as co maker in a loan 6 years ago but the principal borrower failed to return the lending company mandated me to settle the corresponding amount..bec of this & out of fear i issued checks. But then i had an opportunity to work abroad and took it rightaway. The principal borrower also left the country to migrate in canada, but promised me that he will take care of it, apparently he failed to do so..and i think the lending company filed a case sometime in 2006.. Not sure though on the exact date..its been 6 years that im not going home but i recently lost my job and decided to come home for good with little money i saved abroad to start a new business. I remembered this case suddenly so i asked someone to check it for me..and i found out that the case is " pending"

Im not sure if there is a warrant of arrest issued, and i was able to renew my passport last year.. I have to leave tomorrow as my visa already expired in the middle east..need to stay in Hongkong for a couple of days while im trying to find someone who can help me check if i dont have a hold departure order in the immigration..i just dont want to end up in jail for helping someone or out of ignorance..

If in case a warrant of arrest is already issued, can i post bail and make settlement, if i can settle the amount rightaway just to be able to come home in the phillipines and live free..i will be stuck in hongkong
In case i cannot find someone to help me check in the immigration..

Need your advise please.. Appreciate your urgent response.

i doubt you would be arrested upon your entry at the airport. you should come back first then deal with it.
