Komukai, 25, also a swimsuit model, left Manila on Friday on a flight bound for Narita airport and is facing charges for buying methamphetamines from an Iranian dealer in Tokyo.She emerged as a suspected buyer after the police cracked down on a group of Japanese and Iranian drug dealers in October last year and looked into the communications records of seized cellphones, they said.

Komukai arrived in Manila on Jan. 21, before the Japanese police obtained an arrest warrant for her. She was sentenced in February 2009 to an 18-month prison term for methamphetamine use, suspended for three years.
