Arrest warrant cancelled: Bikoy posts bail
Peter Joemel Advincula alias Bikoy posted a P10,000 bail on Monday (Feb. 17) before the Quezon City Metropolitan Trial Court (MeTC).
“Advincula posted 10k bail today at 2pm,” said his legal counsel, lawyer Larry Gadon.
“The Court issued a Recall order and cancelled the warrant of arrest,” he added.
Advincula posted bail after QC MeTC Branch 138 issued last Feb. 13 a warrant for arrest against Advincula and 10 of his co-accused in the conspiracy to commit sedition case.
His co-accused are former senator Antonio Trillanes IV, Police Sr. Supt. Eduardo Acierto, Peter Joemel Advincula alias Bikoy, Joel Saracho, Jonnel Sangalang, Yolanda Villanueva Ong, Vicente Romano III, Fr. Flaviano Villanueva, and Fr. Albert Alejo.
The case stemmed from the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” which featured the hooded Bikoy, who was later revealed to be Advincula, which accused Duterte family members as being involved the narcotics trade.
The Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) filed the complaint before the Department of Justice (DOJ) using the testimony of Advincula.
Advincula claimed members of the opposition were behind the videos which were meant to discredit and destabilize the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.
The DOJ subsequently filed charges before the MeTC after finding probable cause to indict the 11 accused.
