PDEA witness: Prevendido in sister’s house
ILOILO City – Is suspected drug lord Richard Prevendido hiding in the house of his sister, Barangay Captain Remia Prevendido Gregori in Bakhaw, Mandurriao district?
The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Region 6 wanted to inspect Gregori’s house but its operatives were not allowed to come in, according to Deputy Regional Director Levi Ortiz.
Ortiz admitted they did not have a search warrant.
“We received text messages that Prevendido was hiding in his sister’s house. We went there but she refused to let us in,” said Ortiz.
This was in March, said Ortiz, two months after the Regional Trial Court, Branch 21 issued an arrest warrant against Prevendido on Jan. 6, 2017 for violation of Section 11 ( possession of dangerous drugs) of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. Judge Daniel Antonio Gerardo Amular did not recommend a bail bond.
