German national arrested in Olongapo

The Bureau of Immigration has arrested an overstaying German national who faces a string of complaints for swindling and estafa at the Subic Freeport in Olongapo City.

Robert Peter Fuessl, 49, was arrested last February 26 at his residence along Sangley Loop, West Kalayaan, Subic by operatives of the BI law enforcement division.

BI Commissioner Marcelino Libanan ordered Fuessl's arrest after his victims sought the bureau’s help in going after the alleged German swindler.

According to Associate Commissioner Roy Almoro, Fuessl is the subject of a complaint by a certain Jill Anunsacion who claimed the German defrauded her of more than P650,000 in unpaid loans.

“He is also an overstaying and undocumented alien aside from engaging in business here without the required visa,” Almoro said, adding that Fuessl is a respondent in several estafa cases pending with the prosecutor’s offices in Olongapo and Makati.

In her affidavit, Anunsacion claimed that she was introduced to Fuessl by the latter’s common law wife in 2006.

She said she gave the couple, who were engaged in the car importation business, several tranches of loans totaling P650,000 which the foreigner failed to pay up to the present.

The complainant further alleged that Fuessl issued her postdated checks which later “bounced” as the bank accounts were closed.

BI technical assistant for intelligence Victor Boco disclosed that a Briton named Mark Prangnell also filed a complaint against Fuessl alleging that the latter is engaged in the car import and sell business although he is a mere tourist.

Boco said five tourist visa extensions stamped on the Fuessl’s passport are all fakes. “His passport also contained an altered stamp of his arrival which showed that he was admitted as balikbayan even if he is not legally married to a Filipina,” he added. abs-cbnNEWS.com
