Ibay explained that Advincula’s family was waiting for their relatives which was why he extended his stay in Camp Crame.

“He was with him [Joseph] kasi magkapatid sila, ni-raise namin sa kapatid niya and they were waiting for other relatives kaya tumagal,” Ibay said.

Ibay added that as per CIDG’s knowledge, there were no threats against Advincula’s life.

“Wala pong binanggit sa amin na threat, wala kaming pinagusapang ganun,” he added.

Advincula has posted bail for all his estafa cases, thus, providing him his temporary liberty.
