MANILA, Philippines—The Sandiganbayan Fourth Division ordered the arrest of whistle-blower Rodolfo “Jun” Lozada Jr., who is facing two counts of violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

Lozada has been charged in court for violation of the anti-graft law for allegedly awarding the leasehold right of a 6,599 hectare land to his brother Jose Orlando Lozada without undergoing the application process.

The Sandiganbayan said Lozada has yet to post P60,000 bail for his temporary liberty.
