MANILA, Philippines — Dr. Chao Tiao Yumol, the suspect behind the multiple killings during the Ateneo College of Law graduation rites, has been transferred to the custody of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), ahead of his arraignment next week.

Quezon City Police District Director P/BGen. Remus Medina said that Yumol’s transfer to BJMP was done on Saturday, a day after the murder of his father Rolando in Lamitan City, Basilan.


Medina said the QCPD will continue to closely coordinate with BJMP with regards Yumol’s case. At the same time, he thanked his colleagues for handling the case well, along with the local government of Quezon City.


“Patuloy na palalakasin ang gagawing pakikipag ugnayan ng QCPD sa BJMP  upang masigurong magiging maayos ang mga nakatakdang pagdinig sa kaso ng suspek na si Dr. Yumol,” he said in a statement.

(The QCPD will continue to strengthen its relationship with the BJMP to ensure that the scheduled hearings in the case of the suspect, Dr. Yumol, will go smoothly.)

“Samantala, nakatakdang sumailalim ang suspek na si Dr. Yumol sa arraignment proceedings ngayong paparating na Linggo,” he added.

(Meanwhile, Dr. Yumol is set to undergo arraignment proceedings this coming week.)

Aside from three counts of murder, Yumol also stood charged for one count of frustrated murder, car theft and malicious mischief with damages amounting to P80,000 sought by car owner Johnny Palma.

During his shooting spree in Ateneo last July 24, Yumol gunned down former Lamitan mayor Rosita Furigay, her aide Victor Capistrano, and Ateneo security guard Jeneven Bandiala.


He also injured Furigay’s daughter, who graduated from her law studies on that day.
