NBI: Progress made
in Arles slay probe


National Bureau of Investigation Bacolod chief Ferdinand Lavin yesterday said they have made “very good” progress in their investigation into the killing of Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Judge Henry Arles.

“We have a very good case”, he said, adding that the NBI may be able to wrap up its probe in less than two months from now.

“We have to be very thorough in gathering evidence…we don’t want to file a case that will only be dismissed, either in the level of the prosecutor, or in court,” Lavin said.

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

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

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima has been very supportive of their investigation in the killing of Arles, Lavin said.

He added that they are focusing on at least four key players they have identified for the judge’s death.*GPB
