Bureau of Immigration (BI) agents arrested on Thursday a French national wanted in his homeland for sexual abuse of minors.
Operatives from the BI’s Fugitive Search Unit arrested Pascal Didier Gillot, 53, along A. Masangkay St. in San Roque, Antipolo City.
Gillot was the subject of a Mission Order issued by BI Commissioner Jaime Morente for being deemed as a risk to public safety and security.
“We recently received information from French authorities that Gillot is wanted in France, and is the subject of a warrant of arrest for rape cases on children,” said Morente.
Gillot is reportedly also the subject of Interpol red notices for sexual abuse of a child under 15 years old by a person of authority, and for repeated attempts to remove a child from the care of her legal guardian, both in violation of the French Penal Code.
Upon verification of Gillot’s records, it was also found that he is already an overstaying alien.
He will be detained at the BI Warden Facility in Bicutan, Taguig, pending the finalization of his deportation proceedings.

BI also deported a Bahraini national convicted of rape and sex crimes in his country.
BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said 44-year-old Waleed Abdulla Hamad Alsendi, boarded a Gulf Air flight to his country shortly after noon on Friday, and was accompanied on his flight by three Bahraini police escorts who came here to fetch him.
Morente said the alien was expelled pursuant to a summary deportation order that the BI Board of Commissioners issued against him.
The Board also ordered that Alsendi be placed in the BI Blacklist to prevent him from re-entering the Philippines.
“He is now banned from re-entering the country for being an undesirable alien. His presence here poses a serious threat to Filipino women as he is a sex offender,” the BI chief said.
Records showed that operatives from the BI’s Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) arrested Alsendi at his residence in Dasmariñas, Cavite last February 23 on the strength of a mission order that Morente issued in response to the request of Bahraini authorities.
He is also a subject of an Interpol red notice that was issued two years ago.
