COURT ALLOWS BAIL FOR NOTORIOUS REBEL LEADER

1

ZAMBOANGA CITY: A Philippine court has allowed a captured rebel leader to post bail despite a string of criminal cases, including the kidnappings of an elderly Italian and Irish missioners in the southern region of Mindanao. Police said the court recommended a P24,000 ($558) bail for the temporary freedom of Ogis Jakaria, a notorious commander of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which is now negotiating peace with the Aquino government. Jakaria is being implicated in the kidnappings of Italian priest Giancarlo Bossi in 2007 in Zamboanga Sibugay’s Payao town and Irish missionary Michael Sinnott in 2009 in Pagadian City in Zamboanga del Sur province. Both priests had been freed in exchange for huge ransoms facilitated by private negotiators.

  1. The Supreme Court should look into this decision by this Judge whether the release of this person with so many criminal activities and kidnapping cases was proper or not.

    If not, the Supreme Court should remove this Judge from holding a judgeship forever.

    Requesting the Supreme Court to look into this.
