‘Bar Dureza’

- Crime · Quezon City

The pros­e­cu­tion panel han­dling the “Maguin­danao Mas­sacre” suit wants a Que­zon City court to bar for­mer Pres­i­den­tial Ad­viser on the Peace Process in Min­danao Je­sus Dureza to be pre­sented as re­but­tal wit­ness in the bail pe­ti­tion of prin­ci­pal ac­cused An­dal “Datu Unsay” Am­pat­uan Jr. be­cause the for­mer holds priv­i­leged in­for­ma­tion. In a four-page mo­tion, Se­nior As­sis­tant State Pros­e­cu­tor Maria Emilia Victorio one of the mem­bers of the panel said that pre­sent­ing Dureza as re­but­tal wit­ness in said bail pe­ti­tion is im­proper. The panel filed the mo­tion at the Que­zon City Re­gional Trial Court Branch 221. (Chito A. Chavez)
