MANILA, Philippines — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Tuesday said its most senior officer had been designated as the newest officer-in-charge of the agency.

NBI said that Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla issued a department order dated July 1 designating NBI Deputy Director Medardo de Lemos as the bureau’s officer-in-charge until July 31.


Before the designation, de Lemos was the second in command at the bureau, where he has served for the last 37 years.

NBI said de Lemos was instrumental in crafting the bureau’s Rules of Engagement that defined the policy on using deadly force in its enforcement operations.


De Lemos is also a regular lecturer at the Philippine Judicial Academy, according to the NBI.

He was born and raised in Iligan City, where he finished his primary and secondary education, the NBI added.

De Lemos obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of the Philippines-Diliman and his Master in Management from the Philippine Christian University.
