MANILA, Philippines — The United States is confident that controversial pastor Apollo Quiboloy will eventually face the charges filed against him in the US.

In a statement on Wednesday, the United States Embassy in the Philippines said Quiboloy will face justice for his “heinous crimes.”

This comes after the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) Founder accused the United States government of plotting to “eliminate” him with the help of the Philippine government — accusations he spouted after being summoned by the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Earlier this week, Quiboloy was slapped with a subpoena order by both chambers of Congress after he snubbed committee hearings related to KOJC and the television network it owns, SMNI.

Quiboloy’s 37-minute audio message posted on social media on Wednesday alleged that the Philippine government, including lawmakers, are plotting to kill him and his church leaders. 

Quiboloy also alleged that a “rendition” would be conducted on him.

The US embassy reiterated that Quiboloy has been responsible for several rights abuses and is on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s most wanted list.

“For more than a decade, Apollo Quiboloy engaged in serious human rights abuses, including a pattern of systemic and pervasive rape of girls as young as 11 years old, and he is currently on the FBI’s Most Wanted List,” the US embassy said.

“Questions about legal proceedings should be directed to the US Department of Justice,” the US Embassy in Manila added.

Quiboloy, who was indicted by a California court in 2021 for allegedly conspiring to engage in sex trafficking, has an active arrest warrant in the US issued on Nov. 10, 2021, according to the US Federal Bureau of Investigation's website.

The US Department of Treasury in 2022 blocked Quiboloy's assets over what it described as "serious human rights abuses" committed by the preacher.
