Both sides in the murder complaint filed by the family of murdered magistrate, Henry Arles, are poised to file motions for reconsideration, the Arles family, to move for the inclusion of three of the alleged masterminds in the complaint, and the suspects leaders and members of the breakaway, RPA-ABB now renamed Kapatiran, to quash the charges against them, lawyer Frank Britanico, brother-in-law of the magistrate said.
That the suspects including an aide of Ilog Mayor John Paul Alvarez will file motions for reconsideration, are foregone conclusions, Britanico, surmised on the part of the suspects.
The Arles siblings, Philip and her younger sister, Ria Arles in colorful flowery dress which she wore after being garbed in a lawyer’s formal clothing in a previous press conference, said they remain confident that the country’s justice system would work out as it should in the case of their murdered father, the magistrate, Henry Arles,shot and killed a year ago in a small village in Manalad, Ilog town, just a few kilometers from his home in Dancalan Village, Ilog town.
The woman-lawyer, the apple of his late father’s eye whom she said she occasionally dreams about, said in regular justice system procedures in the country, it may take only six months at the least for the prosecutor’s office to resolve a case brought before it, including the murder complaint lodged by the Arles family against rogue elements of the RPA-BB, and three officials, including Vice-Governor Genaro Alvarez, Ilog Mayor Paul Alvarez, and Cauayan Vice-Mayor Gerry Tabujara. Nevertheless, Ria Arles said the family retains its confidence in the justice system, adding that in fact, a draft resolution of the murder case has already been finished and to be written in final form. But the Arles family indicated that they are not exhibiting any anxiety or impatience over the delay in the complaint’s resolution.
