Authorities are certain that they now know the whereabouts of a “David Tan”, allegedly behind the rice smuggling operations in the country.
According to Justice Secretary Leila De Lima, the National Bureau of Investigation has possibly identified the real identity of Tan, real name “Davidson Bangayan”.
De Lima said that the NBI already have the home and business addresses of Bangayan.
Bangayan is supposedly a one-man cartel from Davao.
Meanwhile, there are allegations from militant groups that the surfacing of the name of Tan is just a strategy by the government to cover up the involvement of the National Food Authority in the rice smuggling case.
