MANILA, Philippines—Justice Secretary Leila de Lima on Monday issued a lookout bulletin against the three Chinese drug lords snatched by heavily armed men from police escorts despite reports that the three may have already fled to Taiwan.

In a memorandum order dated Feb. 25, De Lima directed Immigration Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. to “instruct all immigration officers to be on the lookout/alert for Li Lan Yan alias Jackson Dy, his wife Wang Li Na and Li Tian Hua should any of them pass through immigration counters in any of our international airports and/or seaports and to detain and turn them over to the proper authorities should they do so.”

De Lima also ordered David to coordinate with the Philippine National Police and other agencies to get additional information about the Chinese nationals.

The Chinese drug lords escaped last Feb. 21 and reportedly rode a boat towards Taiwan.

    The Amazing Leila De Lima!

    She can prevent a former President to leave the country for necessary medical treatment but cannot stop Chinese drug lords not only from escaping from police escorts but also the country???

  • sam_aquino

    de lima should be kicked out of the cabinet…  every time she moves, it’s already late…  the suspects (amalilio, reyes brothers, & now these chinese drug lords) already escaped even before she takes action… 

    the problem is right under her nose, it’s the BI… 

    wake up, huyyy!!!

    useless cabinet secretary…

      That’s how justice is being served in the Philippines. Kaya walang nahuhuling big fish kasi huli na kung magreact ang mga tao sa gobyerno.

    Well done de- Lima- It is, as I understand it, generally accepted protocol in these matters to keep the doors closed on prisoners to prevent their escape, and NOT to close doors AFTER the prisoner escapes…a novel idea maybe, but one that seems to work in most countries, with a few exceptions of course. Anyway, GMA is still under lock and key which is the main thing…… It might help if photos of these people were issued to all, just in case, -you never know…. In fact just the other day a Chinee boy and gel offered me half a million in cash for me banca, wanted me to load it with a thousand liters of fuel as well, they said they were going island hopping. I mean what could I say, the thing is barely worth a hundred grand, what’s a girl to do eh? ……….

    Scape of three Chinese drug lord was well plan like other escape cases where money is always great contributory in the plan. Like in politics life, politician will look into a winning team were they can sure of victory of course aside from fame, money is always the common denominator.  Those concern authority in-charge in guarding the said drug lords has already the big cash on hand more than the separation fee they can received what ever be the outcome of the investigation

    “Tight watch set vs escaped Chinese drug lords” – useless na ito. Nakaalis na sa bansa ang mga salarin.

  • disqus_EWrSdjV1nv

    kung ganyan ang ginawa ni gatdula kay esmeralda…. maniniwala pa ako na may hit. hehehe. IBALIK SI GATDULA!!! DELIMA SINUNGALING!!!


    Naka takas ang Chinese drug lord ! Solusyon ni De Lima, “huliin sila sa airport ! “. Hoy De Lima, meron bang kriminal na mahu huli sa airport o seaport. Noon pang Feb. 21 sila nag babay Pilipnas. Yong nagpa takas sa kriminal, bakit ayaw huliin at ipa kulong ? Dahil ba sa ka KKK ? Ang “Daang Matuwid” ni Penoy ay para mag Harras ng Political opponents. Pero pag mayamang intsik, Libre Takas. Andiyan naman si De Lima na taga hugas ng dumi ng Abnoy.
