Immigration agents have arrested two wanted foreigners; a Norwegian pedophile accused of sexually molesting minors in his country and a Chinese man wanted for running a pyramid investment scam in China.
BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco said 50-year-old Karstein Kvernvik a.k.a. Krokaa Karstein Gunnar, was arrested at the suspect’s residence in Sameerah subdivision in Angeles City, Pampanga by operatives of the bureau’s fugitive search unit (FSU), while the Chinese fugitive, identified as Fu Qihao, was nabbed in Malate, Manila.
An arrest warrant was issued for Fu’s arrest by the public security bureau in Shanghai, China for allegedly running an investment pyramid scam in the city.
Tansingco said both Kernvik and Fu will be deported for being undesirable and undocumented aliens as their passport were already revoked by their respective governments.
The BI chief described Kernvik as a high profile fugitive facing multiple sex-related crimes in Norway.
Information obtained from the Interpol’s national central bureau (NCB) in Manila revealed that the suspect has outstanding warrants of arrest issued by the Salten and Lotofen District Court in Norway on 20 June 2022
Kernvik was reportedly indicted on charges of aggravated sexual assault and child abuse in violation of Norwegian laws.
Both Kernvik and Fu are presently detained at the BI warden facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig pending deportation.
