Cops to move NDF’s Vic Ladlad to Camp Bagong Diwa
National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) consultant Vic Ladlad will be transferred to the Metro Manila District Jail (MMDJ) in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) said Friday.
The QCPD said Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 93 has approved the transfer of custody of Ladlad and a companion, Alberto Villamor, from the Quezon City Police District Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit to the jail facility in the headquarters of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO)
Meanwhile, Virginia Villamor, also one of Ladlad’s companions, was committed to the Quezon City Female Dormitory inside Camp Karingal.
Ladlad and the Villamors were arrested last November 8 for alleged illegal possession of firearms.
They were collared in Novaliches, Quezon City by combined police units from the NCRPO and Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).
The Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office has recently found probable cause to charge Ladlad and his two companions over their alleged possession of several grenades, firearms, and ammunitions.
No bail was recommended for Ladlad and the Villamors for possession of three hand grenades.
But they were allowed to post a bail of P350,000 each for possession of firearms and ammunition. /kga
