MANILA, Philippines – Justice Secretary Leila De Lima on Thursday confirmed that the results of the National Bureau of Investigation probe on the Atimonan, Quezon shooting is now with President Benigno Aquino III.
"It is a thick report, very extensive, and knowing the President, he will read the entire thing," de Lima said.
The Secretary said they will wait for the go signal of the President before releasing the results of the probe to the media.
De Lima also expressed her frustration over the apparent leakage of probe results to certain members of the press a few days ago.
"We gave very specific instructions to prevent such a leakage, so nagagalit kami diyan. We will investigate the matter and impose disciplinary action on those who were responsible," she said.
