Six military-looking men in civilian clothes are currently moving around the house of Bayan Muna (People First) Rep. Satur Ocampo. Bayan Muna is wondering why military men are hovering within the vicinity of Ka Satur’s house when there is no pending warrant of arrest against the legislator.
Rep. Ocampo was last arrested March 16, 2007 on multiple murder charges filed against him and other members of progressive party-list groups in Leyte but was ordered released on bail by the Supreme Court. As far as Bayan Muna knows, there is another case filed against Ka Satur by the Department of Justice at the Regional Trial Court in Nueva Ecija, which they labeled as a “trumped up” charge meant to harass the legislator. But no warrant of arrest has been issued for that case. (Bulatlat.com)>
