Loren's office helps effect arrest of former staff

The office of Senator Loren Legarda caused the apprehension Wednesday of one Flor Sacbibit, a former staff who was fired sometime in 2001, who turned out to be the subject of standing warrants of arrest issued in relation to several estafa and swindling charges filed against her.

"I do not tolerate criminal activities, even if committed by a former staff. The complainants have sought assistance from my office and so we acted appropriately and with dispatch to cause her apprehension," said Loren.

Last May 19, Loren's office received the derogatory information about Sacbibit and immediately requested from the appropriate authorities copies of the standing warrants for her arrest.

The next day, Loren's legal staff and operatives of the Southern Police District apprehended Sacbibit during the Liga ng mga Barangay Convention held at the Mall of Asia SMX convention center.

Among the complaints against Sacbibit was her alleged use of the name of senator in perpetrating her alleged swindling activities.
