NBI aims to file raps vs.
Arles slay suspects soon


The National Bureau of Investigation aims to file charges against the suspects in the killing of Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Judge Henry Arles within a month, NBI Bacolod chief Ferdinand Lavin said yesterday.

Lavin said they are now establishing the identities of the “second level of suspects” in the judge’s slay.

He said the NBI is not sleeping on its job, and is closely working with the Arles’ family in its investigation.

But Task Force Arles has yet to make a breakthrough despite the testimonies of witnesses who helped them in coming out with the facial sketches of the five suspects.

Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, Negros Occidental Provincial Police director, assured the Arles family that the PNP is also exerting its best effort to identify those responsible for the judge’s death.

Arles was shot dead in Brgy. Manalad, Ilog town, while he was driving on his way home on April 24.

Lavin told ABS-CBN that the NBI national leadership is also supporting their effort to solve the murder of Arles.

A P1 million reward has been put up by the family for the arrest and conviction of the suspects, on top of the P200,000 being offered by the Philippine Judges Association.*GPB
