The Philippine National Police (PNP) said they will investigate on why former Ozamiz City vice mayor Nova Princess Parojinog was allowed to leave detention without a court order.
Nova Princess is currently facing drug charges.
On November 12, 2018 the former vice mayor left the PNP custodial center to visit her brother Reynaldo Parojinog Jr. detained at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.
According to PNP Officer-in-Charge PLt. Gen Archi Gamboa, the warden of the custodial center has no right to release any inmate without a court order.
“They can only get out from the custodial center if there is a court order, not even sa hospital. Hindi pwedeng at the discretion ng custodial officer (not even in the hospital, they cannot go out at the discretion of the custodial officer),” he said.—AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
