That was the last time Raymund would see Manuel alive. “Sabi ni Donald (Caigas) huwag na raw naming hanapin ang dalawang babae at si Manuel dahil magkakasama na sila.” (Donald told us not to look for the two women and Manuel anymore because they are already together.)
The Manalo brothers were then transferred to Pangasinan where they were allowed to tend a small farm owned by Caigas. Around 1 a.m. of Aug. 14, the brothers were able to escape from their captors when the soldiers became drunk.
A writ of amparo has also been filed for the Manalo brothers who are still kept in a sanctuary as threats hound them and their family to this day.
Raymund is scheduled to testify for Sherlyn, Karen and Manuel on Dec. 18. (Bulatlat.com)
