MANILA, Philippines–The Bureau of Immigration has granted the voluntary deportation request of Marc Sueselbeck, the German fiancé of slain Filipino transgender Jeffrey “Jennifer” Laude.

Sueselbeck sought voluntary deportation for fear he would lose his job in Germany.


“He received word from his employer in Germany that he has to report for work by Monday next week, November 3, 2014 or risk losing his job and paying unliquidated damages for failing to perform certain provisions in his employment contract,” Sueselbeck, through counsel Harry Roque, said in the motion.

In its order issued Thursday, the Bureau of Immigration said the filing of a motion for voluntary deportation, is “deemed to admit the charges against him, agrees to have his name placed in the Black List and be barred from re-entering the country, and undertakes to secure his outbound ticket.”


Sueselbeck will be able to leave the country as a deportee subject to presentation of outbound ticket and clearance from the National Bureau of Investigation.

Sueselbeck was supposed to fly back to Germany Sunday but was prevented from leaving the country following deportation proceedings initiated by the immigration bureau.

He was charged after he barged into a military facility and pushed a soldier in an attempt to see the Private First Class  Joseph Scott Pemberton suspected of killing Laude on October 11.
