/ 05:24 AM February 14, 2020

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has barred the entry of a suspected Swedish terrorist along with his three companions.

BI port operations division chief Grifton Medina said the passenger, whose identity was not revealed for security reasons, arrived from Singapore at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 last week.


The passenger was immediately excluded after his name registered a positive hit as a suspected international terrorist, Medina said.

Also turned back and booked on the first available flight to their port of origin were the passenger’s three companions. —Tina G. Santos
