The parents of a 16-year-old boy who claimed to have heard the plot to kill a Pangasinan town mayor two years ago have asked the Court of Appeals (CA) to reconsider its June 17 ruling denying their petition for a writ of amparo and the release of their son to their custody.
The Court of Appeals has postponed the hearing on the writ of amparo petition filed by a newspaper publisher who was tagged by his 16-year-old son as a mastermind in the murder of a Pangasinan mayor last year.

The boy, who claimed to have heard of the plot to murder a Pangasinan town mayor, was turning against his own father. “I believe what I am doing is right, so I am not afraid,” he said on Thursday.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued a writ of amparo requested by the father of a boy who is a witness in the murder last year of Infanta Mayor Ruperto Martinez.
