MANILA, (PNA) — The Bureau of Immigration based at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Saturday said they have not yet monitored any attempt by businessman Reynald Luy Lim, Janet Lim Napoles’ brother, to sneak out of the country via the country’s airports.
Wilson Soluren, Bureau of Immigration-NAIA intelligence division chief, said they have not yet received information that Lim tried to exit thru the country’s international airports nationwide even as he assured that he cannot slip past immigration personnel.
“So far wala pa kaming monitored attempt niya to exit the country ever since na nag-issue ng warrant of arrest laban sa kanila,” Soluren said.
He said the BI has a group of dedicated personnel who are manning the country’s international airports 24/7 and that Lim cannot escaped unnoticed.
He said posters bearing vital information of Lim, including his photographs, are still placed in conspicuous places in international airports especially in immigration counters.
Also, he said, agents of the Philippine National Police and the National Bureau of Investigation have been assisting the BI to stop any attempt by Lim to leave the country.
“We believe Mr. Lim is still in the country and hopefully sumuko na rin siya just like what her sister did,” he added.
When spotted at the airports, Lim will be immediately apprehended and turned over to either the police or the NBI.
Lim and Napoles are charged for the serious illegal detention of Benhur Luy who alleged that they were involved in the P 10-billion pork barrel scam.
Napoles is now under government custody after she surrendered to President Aquino III earlier this week. She is set to be transferred to Fort Sto. Domingo, home of the PNP-Special Action Force, in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
