NAVAL, Biliran -A simple misbehavior leads to the arrest of the No. 1 most wanted person in Biliran Province.

Cañete was arrested by virtue of a warrant issued by Judge Bienvenido Montalla of RTC Branch 16 in Naval, Biliran for violations of Secs. 5 & 11.

He is also considered as a high value target (HVT) by the Biliran police provincial office and Kawayan police station, aside from being labelled as No. 1 most wanted person.

Cañete was involved in a homicide case in Inasuyan, Kawayan, Biliran.

He eluded arrest in 2015 in a drug raid where only his wife was arrested with 13 sachets of shabu in 2015 in Inasuyan. –

  1. Biliran is NOT a safe place to stay or visit for foreigners. Until now the killers and masterminds of Henk Nuijts murder last June 26, 2016 have not been bought to justice. The same goes for those responsible for Gene Abrams murder on march 10 this year. Many foreigners are now bypassing this Province because there is no justice to be had for the friends and families of these two generous men, who gave so much of their lives to this Province. The law does not go far enough to apprehend all involved. It seems the law ‘gives up’ the chase, and the Government does not seem to care when all of who were involved with these murders are known to them.
