Judge halts revocation
of licenses for 74 guns

Assisting Judge Manuel Cardinal Jr. of the Bago City Regional Trial Court Branch 62 has granted a writ of preliminary injunction preventing the enforcement of an order cancelling the licenses of 74 firearms seized from the ancestral house of former Pulupandan Mayor Magdaleno Peña in Barangay Ubay, Pulupandan, the ownership of which is being claimed by four firms.

The writ of preliminary injunction dated July 4 was granted subject to the posting of an injunction bond of P100,000 by the plaintiffs Golden Lake Mineral Resources Inc., JHMA Marin Holdings Inc., Kentfield Corp., and Vegas Exploration and Mining Corp.

It appears that defendant, Senior Supt. Jose Mario Meneses Espino, head of the Anti-Organized Crime Division of the police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, was the one who recommended the revocation of the licenses on his claim that 12 of the firearms seized during the raid were unlicensed, Cardinal said.moremoremore
