  • The Department of Justice (DOJ) has ordered the watchlist against former Jaen, Nueva Ecija Mayor Prospero Antonio Esquivel, who is a suspect in a murder case.
    In a watchlist order issued by Chief State Counsel Ricardo Paras, the Bureau of Immigration and Deportation (BID) was directed to monitor the possible departure from the country of the suspect former Mayor Esquivel to avoid criminal prosecution.
    Earlier, Gapan City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 35 Acting Judge Virgilio Caballero ordered the arrest of the former Jaen, Nueva Ecija mayor because of the murder charges filed against him.
