Twelve Filipinas recruited by an alleged human trafficking syndicate for Canada were held at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, radio dzMM reported Friday.

Security personnel at the airport's Terminal 1 stopped the Filipinas from boarding their flight after officials from the Bureau of Immigration tipped off the office of NAIA general manager Alfonso Cusi.

The report said that the Filipinas may have been victimized by an illegal recruitment agency.

The Filipinas were being interrogated by airport officials as of this posting. They will be turned over to the National Bureau of Investigation later to give statements about the illegal recruiter, the report added.
