Faces of the News: Lottie Manalo Hemedez

/ 04:24 AM March 12, 2017

The estranged Manalo siblings, Angel and Lottie, were in the headlines again after two searches inside their supposed homes inside the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) compound yielded a “sea of firearms.”

The expelled younger siblings of INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo were arrested on March 2 after a shooting incident during the first raid.


A no-bail charge for illegal possession of firearms and ammunition was recommended against Angel for five guns found in his residence.

It is still unclear whether police will charge Lottie with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.
