Immigration agents has arrested a German national wanted by authorities in his country for a failed attempt to kill a compatriot in 2006.
The German, identified as Lothar Gunther Bebenroth, was apprehended in Alburquerque, Bohol by operatives from the bureau’s fugitive search unit.
“Bebenroth is wanted to stand trial before a court in Postdam, Germany where he was charged with serious assault and later convicted for nearly stabbing to death a fellow German there on Dec. 28, 2006,” BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said.
The German embassy in Manila sought the BI’s help in locating Bebenroth. An arrest warrant was issued by the Postdam district court against the wanted German.
Bebenroth has previously served two years in prison after he confessed to stabbing a victim in Germany.
Morente said that Bebenroth will be deported for being an undocumented alien, as his passport was canceled by the German government, and for posing a risk to public safety and security.
“He will then be placed in our blacklist to prevent him from reentering the Philippines,” the BI chief added.
