60-year-old American pedophile arrested in Batangas
The Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested on Monday an American pedophile wanted in the US for engaging in child pornography.
According to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, the BI’s Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) in Batangas conducted an operation and arrested the 60-year-old Christopher Wayne Walker at his home in Barangay (village) Darasa, Tanauan City.
“Walker was arrested at the request of the US embassy in Manila which informed the BI about his presence in the country and his record as a sex offender,” Morente disclosed.
Walker was the subject of an arrest warrant issued by the Courts in Burnet County and Bend County in Texas but jumped bail and promoted child pornography.
“The BI board of commissioners already issued a summary deportation order against Walker last April 23 for posing a risk to public safety,” Morente added.
He also said that the deportation order was issued on account of Walker’s status as an undocumented alien that stemmed from the cancellation of his passport by the US government.
The law stated that an alien whose passport was revoked automatically loses stay in the country.
Walker is currently in the BI detention facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City.
His name was placed in the immigration blacklist, leaving him banned from re-entering the Philippines. With a report from Geisha Rezel Sinahonon, INQUIRER.net trainee/IDL
