“How often these shipments are depends on how fast they dispose of the previous shipment,” Tovera said.

De Fong also identified a certain Cornelius Meskars, another Dutch national. However, Meskars has been missing since he was allegedly abducted in Angeles, Pampanga two months ago.

A case for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, particularly Section 5 for sale, trading, administration, dispensation, delivery, distribution and transportation of dangerous drugs, Section 11 for possession and Section 12 for possession of drug paraphernalia will be filed against De Fong, officials said.
