The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has deported an American suspected of sexually exploiting girls in Cebu City.
BI Commissioner Jaime Morente said 64-year-old Craig Alex Levin was deported last Thursday via a special flight chartered by the US Embassy from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
He was detained prior at a BI Warden Facility in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City.
Police operatives arrested Levin at his condominium unit in Cogon Ramos, Cebu City May last year with a 15-year-old girl in his room.
The arrest was made after US authorities informed local police that Levin is to stand trial before a US district court in Philadelphia on charges of sexually exploiting minors in the Philippines and for engaging in child sex trafficking.
Levin was subsequently turned over to the BI where he was detained while undergoing deportation proceedings.
