The woman tagged by suspected Eastern Visayas drug lord Kerwin Espinosa as his drug supplier is no longer in Camp Crame, a police official bared yesterday.
Senior Supt. Albert Ignatius Ferro, Philippine National Police-Anti-Illegal Drugs Group (PNP-AIDG) chief, said Lovely Adam Impal, who surrendered to PNP chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa last December 5, left the PNP headquarters last week and is already with her family.
In an interview at the 1st Founding Anniversary of the AIDG at the PNP Multi-Purpose Center in Camp Crame, Ferro said they have provided Impal police security due to threats she has been receiving.
She has also rejected media interviews for fear of her life.
“When she surrendered to us, she immediately asked for security to protect herself,” Ferro said.
Ferro said despite allegations that she is involved in the illegal drug trade, the PNP has no choice but to let Impal go due to the absence of an arrest warrant against her.
When asked if the PNP is building up a case against her, Ferro said this will depend on the PNP unit which has jurisdiction over her.
Ferro, at the same time, clarified that Impal was not clearing her name when she went to Camp Crame.
