Bureau of Immigration nabs overstaying Kuwaiti in Guimaras

AGENTS from the intelligence division of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested  an overstaying Kuwaiti national who is said to be the subject of complaints from residents in his area for alleged arrogance and intimidation.

BI chief intelligence officer Fortunato Manahan, in his report to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente,  said the arrested Arab national identified as Ahmad Issac Alameri, 59, was apprehended in Guimaras island last June 6 by members of the bureau’s regional intelligence operations unit (RIOU) VI.

Manahan said Alameri, who overstayed in the country since July 2017, is also an undocumented alien holding an expired Kuwaiti passport.

‘He admitted during an interview that he could not return to his country because he is wanted by the royal family and Kuwait’s intelligence agencies.  He also claimed that he has no means to renew his passport and extend his stay,’ Manahan said.

Alameri, it was learned, is now the subject of deportation proceedings, after he had been found to be a public charge and an undesirable alien who does not deserve the privilege to stay in the country.
