 “Please be informed that at around 4:30 p.m. of June 13, 2024, the cases for violation of Presidential Decree No. 1829 (Obstruction), Batas Pambansa number 6 (Illegal Possession of bladed, Pointed or Blunt Weapons), and Article 151 (Disobedience of lawful; orders of persons in authority or their agents) were filed against the suspects during the implementation of warrants of arrest at Glory Mountain,” dela Rey said.

Earlier, Philippine National Police Spokesperson Col. Jean Fajardo said the six attempted to attack authorities during the latest attempt to serve warrants against Quiboloy in Davao City.

The KJC members were not named, but they were described to be “bearing weapons” such as knives and guns.

Authorities said about a hundred police officers went to three properties of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ in Davao City on June 10, but the religious leader was nowhere to be found.

Despite allegations hounding the PNP’s failed attempt to arrest Quiboloy, the country’s police force maintained that the operation was lawful.
