PNP serves arrest warrant vs convicted shabu tiangge operator
MANILA, Philippines —An arrest warrant was served by the Philippine National Police (PNP) to shabu tiangge operator Amin Imam Boratong at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) as the Pasig City Regional Trial Court resumes the trial for his money laundering case.
The arrest warrant was issued by Pasig City RTC Branch 167 Judge Divina Gracia Lopez-Pelino Jr. after the Court of Appeals ordered it to proceed with the trial.
Boratong is already detained at the NBP following his conviction for operating the “shabu tiangge” at his 2,000-square meter compound along F. Soriano street in Barangay Santo Tomas in Pasig.
Under the Rules on Criminal Procedure, a court issues an arrest warrant in order to acquire jurisdiction over the accused. /jpv
