Michael T. Meiring had basked in the shadow of inscrutability. By some accounts, he is a treasure hunter, and a physician who dabbled in herbal medicine. There is mention of a wife, a nurse who worked in a hospital in California. He doesn’t smoke, and drinks only occasionally.
It is said he has been in and out of Davao City for the past 10 years, always staying in Suite 306 of the Evergreen Hotel. The talk in Davao is that Meiring hobnobs with influential political personalities in Mindanao, among them Nur Misuari and Hashim Salamat.
An explosion in his Davao hotel suite on May 16 ripped off that mantle of obscurity, exposing Meiring to the public limelight. What has been revealed, however, is a more complex man whose trail leads back to South Africa and a box supposedly containing US Federal Reserve notes.
Since the May 16 blast, there have been attempts by authorities to keep the circumstances surrounding the incident hush-hush.
An irked Mayor Rodrigo Duterte confirmed today that agents of the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) spirited out of a hospital room here on May 19 an American national responsible for the blast inside a budget hotel room on May 16.
A judge in Davao City said he already issued a certification from court last week for the extradition of an American national who nearly died when a bomb exploded in his hotel room on May 16, 2002.
Regional Trial Court Branch 13 Judge Isaac Robillo said he issued the certification upon the request of the City Prosecutor's Office (CPO), saying the case against Michael Terrence Meiring was shelved in 2003 yet.
TOP LAWMAKERS in the Philippines and the United States yesterday questioned the creation by Washington of new battlefield spy teams for clandestine missions, including counterterrorism operations, in foreign countries.
Pimentel called for an inquiry into the creation of the new US espionage units while citing the case of an American who left the country in May 2002 while facing charges of possessing an explosive in Davao.
Pimentel related the case of one Michael Meiring who was hurt when a bomb exploded in his hotel room in Davao. He said he found it curious that three US Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and the US vice consul visited Meiring in the hospital.
