‘Fake Filipino’: Investigators say Mayor Alice Guo’s fingerprints match Chinese national’s

The National Bureau of Investigation’s (NBI) fingerprint examination found that Guo’s fingerprints were identical to those of a woman named Guo Hua Ping, her suspected real identity, who came to the country as a teen in 2003 with a Chinese passport.
