Philippines deports US most wanted criminal

The Philippines' Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested and deported one of America's most wanted criminals who has been hiding in the country for more than four years for several cases of sexual offences that involve minors in the United States.
David Wayne Greth, 39, came to the Philippines on 5 August 2006. Since arrival, Greth did not extend his tourist visa after the allowed period of his stay expired.
A native of Virginia, Greth has been living in Iloilo province, central Philippines. The undocumented alien made a living by setting up illegal English language schools in Bacolod City and Roxas City to teach Koreans.
Greth's crimes were featured in the television program "America's Most Wanted" that showed his offences including several counts of aggravated sexual battery, forcible sodomy, felony child abuse.
His other unlawful acts include indecent liberties with children and illegal flight to avoid prosecution.
The BI deported the American because he was an overstaying and an undocumented alien.
According to the US Embassy, the State Department ordered the revocation of Greth's passport on 11 September 2008.
Greth was sent back to the US two days ago on a flight to Los Angeles where he was turned over to the US-Federal Bureau of Investigation.
