A GERMAN fugitive wanted for murder in his home country has been arrested in Benguet, according to the Bureau of Immigration (BI).
42-year old Rilling Kenneth Napo was arrested on January 31 at his residence in Upper Poblacion, Tuba, Benguet by operatives from the BI’s fugitive search unit (FSU) in coordination with Naval Intelligence Security Group Northern Luzon and Tuba Municipal Police Station.
According to BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco, they are now waiting to process the appropriate clearances for deportation from the court and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) before they can send Napo back to Berlin.
Napo is also banned from re-entering the country as he is blacklisted as an undesirable alien.
Napo is subject of an arrest warrant issued by the Braunschweig county court in Germany in July 2014 for supposedly murdering his cousin by dismemberment with a sword, robbing his home of valuable items, then fleeing the scene.
“German authorities later learned that he had fled to the Philippines even before the warrant was issued as BI records show he last arrived in the country on July 12, 2014 and did not leave since then,” BI-FSU acting chief Rendel Ryan Sy said in a statement.
