TWO Britons and an American have been detained by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) for overstaying in the country, following their arrest by the members of the intelligence division of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) in separate operations conducted in Pasig and Cavite.
BI Intelligence Chief Fortunato Manahan , Jr. said the aliens, who are currently detained at the BI’s detention facility in Bicutan, Taguig City pending deportation proceedings, were identified as Kevin Hadfield, 68 and Kevin Stanley Eifert, 67, both British nationals who were arrested last September 3 in Bacoor and Dasmariñas, respectively and Todd Allen Null, 49, an American, who was nabbed last September 17 in Pasig City.
Hadfield has been in the country since 2008, while Eifert has been staying in the Philippines since 2013. Null has been overstaying since 2015.
“We requested the commissioner to issue a mission order for their arrest after informants tipped us about the presence of these aliens illegally staying in the country,” Manahan said.
Foreigners staying in the Philippines have a responsibility to ensure that their visas are valid and updated or they face arrest and deportation.
The said three alienswill be deported for overstaying, as they never bothered to extend their stay when their tourist visa expired.
