The Department of Justice (DOJ) has assured charges have been filed against Iloilo Rep. Janette Garin and her co-respondents based on the second batch of Dengvaxia complaints.
Senior Deputy State Prosecutor Richard Anthony Fadullon revealed that the charges were filed before Luzon was placed on under a Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.
On the other hand, he admitted not all charges have been filed in the various courts in Luzon.
“Not all filed yet because of the volume of attachments per information that the courts require,” he explained.
Following the conduct of a preliminary investigation on the second batch of Dengvaxia complaints, a panel of prosecutors found probable cause to indict her and her co-respondents with reckless imprudence resulting to homicide.
The second batch of Dengvaxia complaints concern the deaths of eight children, namely, Roshaine Carino, Christine Joy Asuncion, Clarissa Alcantara, Erico Mendoza Leabres, Christine Mae de Guzman, John Paul Rafael, Michael Tablate, and Naomi Nimura.
So far, the only charges the panel has yet to file are on behalf of the families de Guzman and Tablate.
The panel also intend to file charges against her co-respondents, executives of Dengvaxia producer Sanofi Pasteur, for violating the Consumer Act of the Philippines before the Taguig City courts.
