Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd said that the PNP has sent out more tracker teams to look for the whereabouts Lim, who was already placed by Bureau of Immigration (BI) in their watch-list.
“The arrest of Lim has become the top priority for the tracker teams following the successful transfer of Napoles to Fort Sto. Domingo,” Roxas told reporters in a chance interview in Camp Crame Tuesday.
