The Bureau of Immigration will deport an American wanted for distributing child pornography after he was arrested in Angeles City.

In a statement today (Wednesday, February 27), Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said Jaime Dokulil was arrested last Friday (February 22) at his residence in Clark Field by the bureau’s Fugitive Search Unit (FSU). The suspect is now detained at the BI’s Bicutan detention centre in Taguig City.

In an earlier report of his arrest, the bureau gave his name as Gary James Dukolil. 

Morente said the US Embassy sought their help in locating Dokulil after a district court in Minnesota issued a warrant for his arrest last January 17.

“He will be deported for posing risk to public safety and security as his presence here presents a threat to our Filipino children anyone of who could be his next victim,” Morente said.

The 40-year-old will also be deported as an undocumented alien after the bureau received official communication that his passport has already been cancelled by the US government.

US federal agents are expected to fetch Dokulil in Manila as soon as the BI Board of Commissioners issues the order for his summary deportation.

The American will also be barred from re-entering the Philippines.

FSU Chief Bobby Raquepo said that Dokulil fled to the Philippines on January 11, or just six days before the Minnesota court ordered his arrest.

“He must have sensed his impending arrest. This prompted him to flee his hometown,” he added.

On March 3, 1999, the Dakota County District Court in Minnesota convicted Dokulil on charges of engaging in “terroristic threats” to cause extreme fear by use of violent threats.

The Minnesota terroristic threats statute describes this offense as a crime of violence “in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience”.
