MANILA, Philippines — After pushing for the revocation of Apollo Quiboloy’s gun permit, oppositionist Sen. Risa Hontiveros now wants his passport canceled.

Two courts and the Senate have ordered the arrest of Quiboloy, the leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KJC), for various allegations leveled against him, such as sexual abuse and large-scale human trafficking.


Quiboloy has remained at-large.


“Instead of appearing before the Senate or the courts, he continuously records audio messages that seem to insult the government’s ability to find him,” Hontiveros said in Filipino in a statement on Monday.

“This is appalling. This should not be allowed to pass, but only challenge government more to exhaust all means to restrict his movements,” she said.

As head of the Senate Committee on Women, Hontiveros led the probe into Quiboloy and his church’s alleged violations.

Her committee also recommended that the Senate issue an arrest warrant for the KJC leader.

“The world is closing in on him. He is accused of crimes that transcend continents and nationalities. I trust that many countries are willing to cooperate with the Philippines to hold him accountable,” Hontiveros said.


“If a corrupt congressman has been caught, I hope the corrupt religious leader will also be arrested. The world is small. He cannot escape the law for life.”

She was apparently referring to former Negros Oriental 3rd District Rep. Arnolfo Teves Jr, whose passport has also been canceled by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

Teves has been accused of orchestrating the killing of Gov. Roel Degamo and nine others in Negros Oriental in March last year.

The DFA spokesperson, Teresita Daza, previously explained that when a canceled passport would be a “red flag for any application in all DFA consular offices within and outside the Philippines.”

The cancellation of the passport, Daza, said, was also reported to the Bureau of Immigration and the Interpol office in the Philippines.

“The Interpol office in PH will report this cancellation to Interpol HQ which will put the passport in its alert system in all international border controls,” she said.
