Preps for Pemberton’s deportation underway — BI

Saturday, September 12th, 2020. Filed under: News

MANILA, Sept 12  – Authorities are currently discussing preparations for the impending deportation of US Marine Lance Cpl. Joseph Scott Pemberton, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) said on Saturday.

“BI agents are conducting a coordination meeting now in Camp Aguinaldo to discuss logistical preparations for Pemberton’s deportation,” BI spokesperson Dana Sandoval said in a Viber message.

Sandoval said there is no information yet as to the flight schedule of the American serviceman.

“I haven’t received flight details yet, would have to verify on the ground. From what I understand, arrangements are not yet final,” she said.

On Friday, the BI took over Pemberton’s custody from the Bureau of Corrections.

On Monday, President Rodrigo Duterte granted Pemberton absolute pardon.

Pemberton would be deported after BI’s board of commissioners issued a deportation order against him in September 2015 for being an undesirable alien.

In 2015, he was convicted of homicide for the killing of transgender Jennifer Laude and was sentenced to six to 10 years in prison. (MNS)
