Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said Thursday he has given the green light for the relief of the chief of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Cybercrime Investigation and Assessment Center, pending an internal investigation over an alleged anomalous operation, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

Guevarra confirmed that he had been consulted before Victor Lorenzo’s relief, saying he “will leave (NBI officer in charge) Eric Distor to determine Lorenzo’s assignment pending investigation."

“(T)his, I believe, is standard operating procedure whenever any NBI official or agent is under investigation by the internal affairs division in order to preserve the evidence and preclude any undue influence during the investigation. As secretary of justice, my interest is to maintain professionalism, discipline, and ethical conduct among the personnel and operatives of the premier investigating agency in our country,” he said.

Guevarra said the actual details of the incident involving Lorenzo’s unit are still sketchy but that it involved an operation in Manila.

“(I)n general, it was about the service of a warrant to search, seize, and examine computer data in a certain establishment in Manila last May 31 where some alleged irregularities were observed," he said, adding that no further details could be given as the matter is under investigation by the NBI's internal affairs division.
