Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre has ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to coordinate with the International Police (Interpol) to effect the arrest of retired cop SPO3 Arturo Lascañas.
This is in connection with the death of radio broadcaster Jun Pala.
Lascañas, a self-confessed hitman, had gone on hiding after he tagged President Rodrigo Duterte in a series of alleged lawless murders perpetrated by the so-called Davao Death Squad.
Last April 22, Lascañas fled to Singapore.
Lascañas is a subject of a warrant of arrest issued by the Davao Regional Trial Court for attempted murder.
The arrest warrant is based on the complaint of Louise Aguirre Pala, the widow of the slain broadcaster.
