Immigration has nabbed an overstaying Saudi Arabian man wanted for fraud and embezzlement in his home country.

A Facebook post by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) reported that its officers intercepted the foreigner at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on his way to board a Saudia Airlines flight to Jeddah on May 16.

“Our officers found that he was blacklisted by the BI on July 16, 2015 when our board of commissioners, at the request of Saudi authorities, ordered his summary deportation for being a fugitive and undesirable alien,” said immigration commissioner Jaime Morente.

Bandar Hamdi Alshalwi, 44, was taken out of the plane and immediately brought to the BI warden facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City to await deportation papers from the Saudi embassy.

Alshawi arrived on Sept. 16, 2014, and on Feb. 12, 2015 became the subject of a red notice released by the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol), the immigration bureau said.

The Saudi national allegedly defrauded his victims of almost $2 million in service fees for the recruitment of Filipina domestic helpers.

The bureau said he had an unserved warrant of arrest issued by Saudi Arabia’s Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution and could be sentenced to two years in prison if convicted.  (Jojo Mangahis)
