Officials of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and Bureau of Customs briefed the committee about sensitive details of their recent operations in Pampanga in a closed door session.
During the public hearing, NBI officials also clarified that the contraband discovered inside an abandoned vehicle outside a supermarket in Mabalacat, Pampanga last August was not shabu, contrary to what was reported by the media.
Ross Jonathan Galicia, head of the NBI’s task force against illegal drugs, said the vehicle contained tea bags filled with dimethyl sulfone, an ingredient for making shabu.
“We did not claim that those substances found were shabu. The media came out that it was suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride, but the NBI never claimed those were shabu,” Galicia told the panel.
