The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Regional Field Unit of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Region III, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) conducted a joint operation on Tuesday, May 19, and raided a villa illegally operating as a makeshift medical facility for Chinese patients at the Fontana Leisure Park in Clark Freeport.
As a result, Clark officials have ordered the closure and full lockdown of Fontana Leisure Park inside the Clark Freeport following the raid.
This illegal activity not only violates the law, but also poses danger to individuals who potentially need medical treatment for the deadly disease. CDC does not and will never tolerate this inside the Clark Freeport.
Arrested in this raid were two Chinese nationals identified as Mr. Ling Hu, 45 years old and alleged owner and Ms. Seung-Hyun Lee, 38 years old, alleged pharmacist. They were taken to PNP Regional Office in Camp Olivas, City of San Fernando.
Aside from the operators who are now facing criminal charges, the CDC will also hold into account the management of Fontana for allowing this to happen within their property.
Clark assures its stakeholders, the locators, local communities and residents especially, that they will not stop until all those involved are prosecuted and punished.
