Wag muna magpakasaya! Lacson: Final dismissal of raps vs. Faeldon up to Aguirre

Nov 23, 2017 @ 16:40

The dismissal of the charges against ex-Customs officials including Nicanor Faeldon is not final at this time, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Thursday.

Lacson said the dismissal was by prosecutors who conducted the preliminary investigation, and is still to be reviewed by Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II.

“Ang pagka-dismiss, hindi final yan. Because there’s an automatic review by the Secretary of Justice. Ang doon, yan sa mga prosecutors assigned to conduct the preliminary investigation,” he told reporters.

“So it will now be elevated to the SOJ for his automatic review. (So) let’s wait for the final disposition bago tayo mag-speculate,” he added.

Earlier this week, the DOJ found probable cause for importation of dangerous drugs against several personalities, but excluded Faeldon and other former BOC officials.
