A few hours later upon receipt of the report, operatives of the PNP Intelligence Group conducted follow-up operations at 3:00 AM on Sunday, January 21, to verify the information from the BIN and found Mr. Al Jabouri in the area toting a large black luggage.
Based on the travel documents, PNP investigators found out that Al-Jabouri’s 90-day Visa valid only from August 10, 2017 to November 9, 2017 had already expired.
During questioning, Al-Jabouri revealed that he served as a consultant for “Hamas” Organization in Damascus, Syria and moved to Istanbul, Turkey in 2012. He also said that he traveled to Manila to meet a Chinese business group that hires him as a consultant.
The PNP-IG is coordinating closely with the Bureau of Immigration and the Iraqi Embassy for further disposition of Mr. Al-Jabouri.
