Norwegian wanted for sex offenses against children arrested in the Philippines

A Norwegian man wanted by authorities in Oslo for sexually molesting children was recently arrested by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) in Ilocos Norte, a province in northern Philippines, Manila Standard reports.

The Norwegian man identified as 43-year-old Alexander Calapini-Solberg is considered a high-profile fugitive and he is wanted in Norway for several sex offenders which have been filed against him in court. 

Among these, his warrant is based on 4 counts of sexually molesting young children on repeated occasions while he is also the subject of an Interpol Red Notice based on arrest warrants that were issued against him by Folio Og Norde Ostfold District Court in Norway.

According to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente, the man was arrested in Barangay 48-A Cabunggaan, Laoag City, and the mission order was issued at the Norwegian authorities’ request after informing the bureau that he was an undocumented alien as his passport had been revoked by the Oslo government.

“We are going to deport him for being an undesirable alien. His continued presence in the country poses a serious threat to our Filipino children, any one of whom could be his next victim,” Morente said in a statement.

  1. False accusations, this is not correct. He saved the life of the King of Norway in 2007. Since then the secret police in Norway has been trying to kill him. His daughter was kidnapped in October 2016 by the same police station that has made these false claims against him. He, his wife and daughter immigrated to the Philippines in November 2016 to save their lives. He is a permanent resident of the Philippines and is still being detained at Bicutan detention center in Manila. Shame on the Philippines, and God bless Alexander and his family
