Senator Panfilo Lacson is back

After one year of 'hiding", Senator Panfilo "Ping" Lacson is back in the Philippines. Officials said that, Senator Lacson arrived in Manila last Saturday. The record showed that he came from Hongkong and landed in Mactan International Airport in Cebu on a Cathay Pacific flight CX 921.

"Dumating po si Sen. Panfilo Lacson sa Mactan Airport lulan ng isang Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong at siya ay sinalubong ng isa nating Bureau of Immigration offical," Chief Supt. Agrimero Cruz Jr said in an interview on radio.

Senator Ping was accused of killing PR man Bobby Dacer and his driver Emmanuel Corbito. Former member of  Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Task Force, Cezar Mancao II said in his testimony while detained in United States, Senator Lacson is the mastermind of the abduction and killing of Dacer and Corbito.

After denying his involvement in the crime, he felt he won't be given a fair trial under the Arroyo administration, he left the country. Department of Foreign Affairs canceled his passport and travel documents, after some speculation that the Senator is still in the country. There were reports that he went to Hongkong and Rome, Italy.

Now,  the Court of Appeals dismissed his arrest warrant and only the Supreme Court can reinstate the warrant issued last year. Dept. of Justice and International Police Organization (INTERPOL) removed his name from their red notice list after the ruling.

Senator Lacson is back to clean his name and will face all the allegations filed against him.
