The four Chinese individuals, all convicted for violating the country’s illegal drugs laws, were released from Building 14, Maximum Security Compound in June, based on the information Lacson obtained on August 16.
They were transferred to the custody of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) for possible deportation, he initially said.
But Lacson later clarified that the four Chinese were freed, not transferred to the BI.
“Right now, I have a copy of some releases… At least four of those released already, as of August 16, are Chinese drug lords,” Lacson told reporters in an interview.
“Recently released, maximum security compound, June 2019. Not just August,” he added.
He identified the four Chinese drug lords as: Chan Chit Yue, Kin San Ho, Ching Che, Wu Hing Sum.
