The Department of Justice (DOJ) has issued an immigration lookout bulletin order (ILBO) on Senator Leila De Lima and five others allegedly involved in the proliferation of drugs inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).
A subject of an ILBO can still leave the country but has to seek permission from the DOJ. Its purpose is to monitor the whereabouts of the person subject of an ILBO.
Aside from De Lima, also on the ILBO are former Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan, former Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief Franklin Jesus Bucayu, De Lima’s former driver Ronnie Dayan, former Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission head Reginald Villasanta and De Lima’s former aide Joenel Sanchez.
“Considering the gravity of the possible commission of any offense, there is a strong possibility that they may attempt to place themselves beyond the reach of the legal process of the Department by leaving the country,” stated in the memorandum of Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre which was addressed to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente.
