DOJ to submit for resolution drug raps vs 6 suspects in San Juan drug raid

MANILA, Jan. 6 (PNA) -– The Department of Justice (DOJ) is set to submit for resolution on the drug trafficking charges against six suspects including three Chinese nationals who were arrested in a raid in San Juan City which yielded some 500 kilos of shabu worth around Php3 billion last December 23.

During the continuation of preliminary investigation hearing on charges of violations of Republic Act 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002) held at the DOJ on Friday, the suspects -- including three Chinese nationals identified as Shi Gui Xiong, Che Wen De, and Wu Li Yong -- were assisted with their respective counsels.

All six suspects were charged before the DOJ last Dec. 27. They underwent inquest proceedings before Assistant State Prosecutors Mary Jane Sytat and Ethel Rhea Suril.

The three Chinese nationals failed to submit their counter-affidavits.

The counsel of Wu Li Yong manifested they are willing to submit counter-affidavit, but they did not know their client was given until Friday (Jan. 6) to submit his counter-affidavit while the counsels of Shi Gui Xiong and Che Wen De moved that they will not file counter-affidavits.

Last Tuesday (Jan. 3), the three Chinese nationals still did not have a lawyer. With this, Assistant State Prosecutors Sytat and Suril gave them until next hearing on Friday to submit their counter-affidavits through the assistance of a public attorney.

The three other respondents identified as Abdullah Mahmod Jahmal, Salim Cocodao Arafat and Basher Tawaki Jamal already submitted their counter-affidavits last hearing.

Through the assistance of PAO, the three Filipino respondents, in their counter affidavits, denied the allegations of manufacture, trading, delivery, distribution, possession and transportation of illegal drugs.

The three were arrested in the drug bust led by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in San Juan City.

They claimed that they just passed by the area where the raid was conducted and were just asked by an unknown person to drive the running, empty vehicle where they were later on arrested.

During the Friday hearing, the counsel of Jahmal manifested that they have secured the CCTV footage from Jollibee Annapolis and will get it within the day at 3 p.m., thus he is given until Monday (Jan. 9) at 11 a.m. to submit the footage. Otherwise, it will not be considered as evidence for his defense.

Meanwhile, the counsel for Arafat manifested that the NSO copy of his birth certificate will likewise be submitted on Monday at 11 a.m.

But the NBI said the complainant already submitted additional evidence that Arafat is an adult due to the presence of third molar on all his four quadrants during a dental ageing examination done on Jan.3.

Complainant NBI Task Force Against Illegal Drugs (TFAID) served a search warrant to the suspects last Dec. 23 at 309 Mangga Street corner Infanta in Barangay Little Baguio where they found plastic bags containing shabu.

After one month of surveillance, operatives confirmed the information and applied for a search warrant.
