NBI puts Kerwin Espinosa in a secure jail

Suspected drug lord Kerwin Espinosa is now detained in a secure facility of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

This is according to NBI Spokesperson Ferdinand Lavin.

Espinosa was brought to the NBI at about 11:30 pm on Wednesday from PNP Anti-Illegal Drugs Group (AIDG) in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

This is following the order of Baybay, Leyte Regional Trial Court.

Espinosa was handcuffed and was wearing a bullet-proof vest upon arrival at the NBI Headquarters.

He underwent a medical check up before he was brought to a detention facility.

He wanted to stay in Camp Crame but he also needed to process his application for the Witness Protection Program (WPP) of the Department of Justice.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre says, if Espinosa wants to be under the WPP, he will have to submit an affidavit which will undergo an evaluation.
