LOOK: NBI arrests SBSI leader, officials at Senate
MANILA, Philippines — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Tuesday arrested alleged cult Socorro Bayanihan Services Inc. (SBSI) leader Jey Rence Quilario or “Senior Agila.”
Quilario was arrested along with 12 other SBSI officials as they faced 21 cases for Qualified Trafficking in Persons, Facilitation of Child Marriage, Solemnization of Child Marriage, and Child Abuse.
Following this action, NBI now has custody of the SBSI officials after the Senate Committee on public order and dangerous drugs chair Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa ordered a turnover of their custody to the bureau following a hearing on Tuesday afternoon.
Justice Undersecretary Nicholas Felix Ty, during the probe, said the Department of Justice is set to request for a change in venue for the preliminary investigation on SBSI from Surigao to Manila.
