Manila, Philippines – An American fugitive and a German pedophile have been deported to their respective countries as the Bureau of Immigration (BI) is intensifying its campaign to rid the country of undesirable foreign visitors.
BI Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. identified the American as William Elliott Phillips III, 55, and the German as Dieter Manfred Vinzentz, 54.
Phillips was deported last June 18 aboard a Philippine Airlines ﬂight to Los Angeles, California.
He is wanted by the US district court in Ohio where he was charged with conspiracy to defraud the US government and making a false personal income tax return.
Phillips was arrested in Calamban, Cebu by operatives of the BI fugitive search unit.
On the other hand, Vinzentz, was deported last June 22 to Frankfurt, Germany via a Thai Airways ﬂight.
He was sent home after being released by the National Bilibid Prison where he served a jail sentence imposed upon him by the Mandaue regional trial court. (Jun Ramirez)
