The Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed criminal charges against the three suspects in the foiled bombing attempt at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 last September 1.
The case of illegal possession of incendiary device was filed before the Pasay City Regional Trial Court (RTC) against Grandeur Guerrero, Emmanuel San Pedro and Sonny Yohanon.
In the resolution signed by Assistant State Prosecutor Aristotle Reyes and approved by Prosecutor General Claro A. Arellano, the DOJ found probable cause in the complaint filed by the National Bureau of Investigation-Anti Organized and Transnational Crime Division (NBI-AOTCD) against the three suspects that they were allegedly behind the Improvised Incendiary Device (IID) found inside a parked vehicle at the NAIA open parking lot on Sept. 1.
On the other hand, the DOJ dismissed the case of illegal possession of firearms because the NBI failed to submit the appropriate certification to prove that the three suspects were not licensed to carry firearms.
Likewise, the DOJ said that the NBI also failed to present an evidence to prove their allegation that the three respondents were part of a group who was planning to sow violence through the bombing of NAIA, the Chinese Embassy and a mall in Pasay City, as well as the building of a big construction company in Makati City.
