The Senate committee on public order and dangerous drugs chaired by Senator Panfilo Lacson has resumed its investigation into the so-called “tokhang for ransom” allegedly being perpetrated by rogue cops.

After conducting its first hearing last January 26, Lacson decided to suspend its scheduled hearing the following week after the Philippine National Police (PNP) ordered a stop to all its anti-illegal drug operations nationwide.
