Another US sex offender intercepted at NAIA – BI

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) reported the interception of another American sex offender who attempted to enter the country on Friday, via the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

In a statement, Immigration Commissioner Norman Tansingco identified the passenger as Daniel Ruic Kimball, 64, who arrived at the NAIA ter6minal 1 aboard a Japan Airlines flight from Narita.


Kimball, according to Tansingco, was denied entry due to his record of conviction as a sex offender who served prison time for his crime in the US.

Section 29 of the Philippine Immigration Act expressly prohibits the entry into the country of aliens convicted of crimes involving moral turpitude.

“This prohibition aims to protect our women and children, anyone of whom can become the next victim of these sex offenders if they are allowed to enter the country,” Tansingco said.


He added that Kimball is now being booked on the next available flight to Tokyo, which is his last port of origin.

According to Interpol’s National Central Bureau in Manila, a court in Missouri convicted Kimball in January 2006 for sexually harassing or coercing a 27-year-old woman.

It has been a standard procedure of courts and law enforcers abroad, especially in the United States, to require their citizens convicted of sex crimes to register with the authorities after they are released from jail or are granted probation.


This enables authorities to keep track of the movements and activities of these offenders, including their travels abroad, thus, governments of these individuals’ countries of destination are accordingly informed prior to their arrival.

Meanwhile, three Malaysian tourists were barred from entering the country at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Friday night for exhibiting rude and disrespectful behavior.

In a report to Immigration Commissioner Norman Tansingco, the BI’s Border Control and Intelligence Unit (BCIU) said the Malaysians, a man, and his two female companions, were denied entry at the NAIA Terminal 3 moments after they landed aboard a Cathay Pacific flight from Hongkong.

The male passenger was identified as Tan Hoong Kiat, 35, and his female companions were Lim Fong Teng, 31, and Khoo Seok Hun, 30. Tansingco immediately ordered the Malaysians’ inclusion in the immigration blacklist, which bans them from entering the country for being undesirable aliens.
