MANILA, Philippines — Two more policemen were relieved after failing lie detector tests conducted by a task force investigating an illegal drug laboratory discovered in the municipality of Naguilian in the province of La Union last July, an official said.

Chief Superintendent Romeo Gatan, head of Task Force Bommotobot, said two policemen were possibly “hiding something,” particularly on the operations of the laboratory manufacturing and selling shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride).

Gatan declined to give the names of the two but said that 55 policemen had been relieved following the incident.

Last month, the Philippine National Police relieved high ranking police officials in the Ilocos Regional Police Office and La Union Provincial Police Office, including Senior Superintendent Samuel Diciano, deputy director for operations of the Ilocos regional police office; Senior Superintendent Franklin Bucayu, chief of the directorial staff; and Superintendent Jaquilino Lagiwid, La Union police intelligence chief.

More than P1 trillion worth of drugs and equipments were confiscated during the raid.
