SUSPECTED Chinese drug lord Jacky Co and five of his co-respondents failed to file their counter-affidavits on accusations implicating them in the shipment of some P1.8-billion worth of illegal drugs last March.
Co’s fellow respondents who have failed to refute the charges were Abraham Torecampo, Carlo Dale Zueta, Leonardo Sucaldito, Mark Leo Magpayo and Arwin Caparos.
The Department of Justice said the charges filed by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) against Co and five others may be resolved against their favor. The panel directed PDEA to file today its reply.
Aside from them, also charged by PDEA were Dong An Dong, Julie Hao Gamboa, Fe Tamayosa, Alvin Bautista, Jane Abello Castillo, and, Brian Pabilona, Meldy Sayson, Rhea Tolosa, Edgardo Dominado, Jerry Siguenza, and Debbie Joy Aceron.
