Loot conceded that he have a companion Peter Lim.
"Meron akong kaibigan na Peter Lim. At one time he was also...in a controversy in drugs. That was a long time ago already. And when I came into the picture as a Regional Chief of Narcotics Office, cleared na siya, wala na siya sa listahan," Loot said.
They proclaimed their total assets to be more than P70 million in their 2014 SALN.
