BI nabs American hired killer in Subic
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested an American national killer for hire in Subic on Tuesday.
Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said Yoshikoson Umeko Haddon was arrested by agents of the bureau’s fugitive search unit (FSU).
He said the BI is already preparing the deportation of Hadden who is currently detained at the BI facility in Camp Bagong Diwa.
Morente said he issued the mission for Haddon’s arrest after being informed by the US embassy that the fugitive’s passport has been revoked by the State Department, thus making him an undocumented alien.
Hadden is wanted in the US following the arrest warrant issued last year by a US district court in Virgina.
He was reportedly facing a case for capital murder, killing for hire and solicitation of adult to commit felony.
Haddon will be placed in the immigration blacklist after he is deported to prevent him from returning to the Philippines, Morente said.
“US authorities have described him as a dangerous felon, thus his continued presence here poses a serious threat to public safety,” the BI chief added. IDL
