MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) said Thursday it is looking at the background of Chinese national Jacky Co whom Senator Panfilo Lacson claimed was responsible for the smuggling of “shabu” worth P1.8 million last March 22.

“Sa kasalukuyan, tinitingnan natin ‘yung record natin tungkol sa pagkakakilanlan ng taong ito. Kasalukuyan tayong nagbe-verify kung ano ang kaniyang background at ano ang meron tayo sa records natin,” PNP spokesperson Police Col. Bernard Banac said in a press briefing at Camp Crame.
