TACLOBAN CITY — Two members of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG-8) who were allegedly involved in the ambush of Charlie Chong in 2008, which resulted in the death of his two security aides, had voluntarily surrendered to the regional office of CIDG-8 at the port area here.
Supt. Honorio Remandaban Agnila, CIDG-8 regional chief, identified the two members of CIDG as SP03 Charlie Almine Ando and P03 Jovito Sy Cabillan.
Supt. Agnila said that two members of the CIDG-8 had voluntarily surrendered to their regional office at around 8:00 o’clock in morning of Jan. 3, 2010 and that they immediately turned over their respective issued firearms and badges as a manifestation of voluntarily surrendering themselves in connection with the Double Murder and Frustrated Murder cases filed against them by Cong. Glenn Chong of the Lone District of Biliran.
The case was docketed as CC# N-22709-2712 and a Warrant of Arrest was issued by Judge Bienvenido Montalla of Regional Trial Court Branch 16, Naval, Biliran.
Supt. Agnila said the two PNCOs who were subjects in the Warrant of Arrest are now detained at the CIDG-8 and will be turned over to the issuing court after proper documentation.
Meanwhile, SP03 Ando told Leyte Samar Daily Express that they voluntarily surrendered to clear their names in the case filed against them by Cong. Chong.
“We voluntarily surrendered in this office to clear our names in the double murder case filed by Cong. Chong against us. Aron maklaro gyud ang tinuod kon kinsa man ang may sala denhi. Ignorante gyud ako ani nga gi filed sa ako ni Cong. Chong nga double murder pa gyud,” SP03 Ando said. (LITO BAGUNAS)
