Philippines Tries To Export FBI Terrorist
A judge in Davao City said he already issued a certification from court last week for the extradition of an American national who nearly died when a bomb exploded in his hotel room on May 16, 2002.
Regional Trial Court Branch 13 Judge Isaac Robillo said he issued the certification upon the request of the City Prosecutor's Office (CPO), saying the case against Michael Terrence Meiring was shelved in 2003 yet.
Robillo said the court certification for the extradition should have been issued before because two years had already been passed.
Meiring, who is facing a complaint for illegal possession of ammunition and reckless imprudence resulting in damage to property, is facing charges before Robillo's sala.
Mayor Rodrigo Duterte earlier said the American should also be charged with arson for burning a portion of the hotel.
Meiring was spirited out of his
hospital room on May 19, 2002, three days after the explosion, by what Duterte
referred to as "arrogant" agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation
