Immigration authorities have arrested an American citizen wanted in the US for murder and other serious offenses and described by Federal authorities as a “dangerous felon.”
Yoshikoson Umeko Haddon was arrested in Subic, Zambales after a US district court in Virgina issued a warrant for Haddon’s arrest in September last year.
Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said he issued the mission for Haddon’s arrest after being informed by the US Embassy that the fugitive’s passport was already revoked by the State Department, thus making him an undocumented alien.
He is now detained at the BI detention facility in Camp Bagong Diwa while awaiting deportation.
He was also charged with capital murder, killing for hire and solicitation of adult to commit felony.
Haddon will be placed on 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.
