LOOK: Warrant of arrest issued by Jolo, Sulu court vs 9 ex-cops for killing Army intel officers
MANILA, Philippines – A day after Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta has assigned a judge to handle the case of nine dismissed policemen involved in the killing of four Army intelligence officers, a warrant has already been issued for their arrest.
Aside from the arrest warrant, Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said the court has also granted their motion for a hold departure order to make sure that all the accused would not be able to leave the country.
The nine police officers were previously under the custody of the Philippine National Police (PNP), but they were released after no arrest warrant has been issued by the court and they have been dismissed from service.
Here is the copy of the arrest warrant signed by acting Presiding Judge Alsad H. Alfad Jr.
