Atty. Frank Britanico, brother-in-law of Judge Arles and lawyer of the Arles family, he received an order from the Supreme Court (SC) granting the petition filed last year by the late judge’s son, Philip, who sought for the change of venue from Kabankalan to Metro Manila "due to threat and intimidation".
Britanico told NDB that the High Court ordered Kabankalan RTC Judge Fernando Elumba to deliver all court records to Quezon City RT C for disposition.
"The 4 out of 7 accused who remain at large are Marvin Salve, Rustom Puro, Emman Medes and Gerald Tabujara and those detained at the Kabankalan detention cell are Jessie Daguia, Capunong and Fortunado - all known members of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade (RPA-ABB) operating in southern Negros Occidental.*(Clarence Locsin)
