DOJ files raps vs.
7 in Arles slay at RTC

The Department of Justice filed murder charges against seven of the suspects in the killing of Judge Henry Arles before the Kabankalan Regional Trial Court Monday, his son, Philip Arles, said yesterday.

The seven are Rustom Puro, Marvin Salve, Gerald Tabujara, Jessie Daguia, Alejandro Capunong and Eddie Fortunado, who are members of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade, and Emman Medes, an employee of the Ilog municipal government.

No bail was recommended for all of the accused, he said.

Meanwhile, the motion for reconsideration filed by the Arles family for the inclusion of three other respondents to the case, who were earlier cleared by the DOJ is still pending, he added.

The three are Negros Occidental Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr., Ilog Mayor John Paul Alvarez and Cauayan Vice Mayor Jerry Tabujara.

Arles was shot dead in Barangay Manalad, Ilog, while on his way home at about 6:30 p.m. on April 24, 2012.

The acting Kabankalan RTC judge now is Fernando Elumba, who also acts as judge of Bacolod RTC Branch 42.*CPG
