Drug lord Jackson Dy one of three inmates killed in Davao prison

/ 06:55 PM August 29, 2016

One of the three Chinese inmates stabbed to death recently inside the Davao Penal and Prison Farm (DPPF) was the convict that caused a rift between the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in 2013.

Li Alan Yan alias Jackson Dy was one of the three Chinese inmates stabbed by a fellow prisoner last Aug. 13, a prison official told INQUIRER.net. He was considered one of the biggest drug lords operating in the country.

Another source said Yan had links with Bilibid inmates and managed to continue drug transactions outside prison.


He was among the inmates transferred to other penal institutions operated by the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) during the time of Justice Secretary now Senator Leila de Lima as a means to stop illegal drug transactions inside the national penitentiary.

In February 2013, Yan was snatched by armed men while on his way to a court hearing. Members of the Ozamis robbery-holdup gang helped Yan’s escape.

Yan was rearrested July of that year in his hideout in Little Baguio, San Juan. Authorities recovered two sacks of shabu in his house.

The CIDG said a member of the NBI served as “protector” of Dy.

De Lima dared the CIDG to identify the NBI personnel involved. However, no name was given or case filed against the NBI personnel.

Yan was accused of operating a shabu laboratory in Barangay Kapipisa in Tanza, Cavite and three shabu warehouses in Quezon City, Pasay City, and Parañaque City when he was arrested in 2003.


Authorities said he led a well-entrenched group that had acquired expensive properties in the country, including a mansion in Subic Bay in Zambales, a residential property at the exclusive Marina Bay Homes in Paranaque, Lancaster in Pasay City, and Horse Shoe Village in Quezon City. JE/rga
