• Sub-standard steel products seized in Laguna


    CABUYAO CITY, Laguna: Authorities on Wednesday seized 1,209 metric tons of sub-standard steel products worth P42 million and arrested 11 people, including five Chinese, during a raid of a warehouse here. Housing czar Panfilo Lacson, Department of Trade and Industry Regional Director Marilou Toledo, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Director Benjamin Magalong and CIDG-Calabarzon Regional Chief Senior Supt. Felipe Natividad led the raid of the South Luzon Steel Industries warehouse at the Alimagno compound in Barangay Banlic after receiving reports from various informants. Lacson said the sub-standard construction materials are suspected to be smuggled into the country from different ports and are eventually transported and sold in Yolanda-affected areas.
