THE Manila Regional Trial Court ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to immediately transfer a self-confessed Customs fixer to the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center, according to a radio report on Friday.
Lawyer Raymund Fortun, representing Mark Taguba, said the court order meant that it recognized threats against the Customs fixer.
Fortun said that Taguba’s arraignment with co-accused Eirene Tatad was set on April 6.
Taguba and Tatad, a consignee, have been linked to the P6.4 billiion shabu shipment that was smuggled into the Philippines from China. NICOLLE MORALES
