In a statement, Immigration Commissioner Normal Tansingco identified the alien as 31-
year-old Aliaksei Rudakou, who was apprehended at the NAIA 3 terminal last Jan. 5 upon arriving
aboard an Emirates flight from Dubai.

Rudakou, who carried the alias Ali and Aliak, was reported to be residing in a condominium
unit in Quezon City.

Tansingco said the passenger was immediately turned over to the Philippine National
Police (PNP) where he is now behind bars pending resolution of his criminal case.

It was gathered that the Bacoor City regional trial court issued a warrant for the suspect’s
arrest on Nov. 22, 2022 after prosecutors filed against him charges of rape with sexual assault.
Consequently, on Dec. 15, 2022, the BI board of commissioners issued an order placing
Rudakou on its alert list and directing immigration personnel to turn him over to law enforcement
authorities if he is encountered at the airport.

“Wanted criminals who have a pending warrant of arrest are immediately turned over to
the proper authorities once intercepted at any port in the country,” said Tansingco.

“We have close coordination with local law enforcement agencies, and immediately include in our system
warrants issued by courts,” he added.
