Son of Talisay, Cebu Mayor in Legal Trouble
« on: October 11, 2008, 02:53:37 PM »
The firearms and explosives section of the police has confirmed that Talisay City Mayor Socrates Fernandez’s son Joavan does not own a licensed firearm and is not legally allowed to keep ammunition.

National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) 7 Supervising Agent Renan Oliva said the confirmation came by way of a certificate signed by Chief Insp. Jacinto Cezar, head of the Firearms Explosives Security Agencies and Guards Supervisory Section (Fesagss) 7.

“This is what we need to support the complaint of illegal possession,” Oliva, a lawyer, said in an interview yesterday. The unlawful possession of a gun or ammunition is prohibited under Republic Act (RA) 8294.

“We can file the complaint on Monday, as soon as we get approval from the regional director,” he said.

Pieces of ammunition for firearms chambered in .45 cal. and 9mm, together with magazines for a pistol and a submachine gun, were taken from Joavan when NBI 7 agents arrested him at a massage parlor late Monday night.

He is facing charges for serious illegal detention filed by cousins and vulcanizing shop workers Osbert and Winston Abellana. Their aunt, Merceditha, filed a case against Joavan for robbery.

Meanwhile, vulcanizing shop manager Merceditha Abellana and her nephew Winston will have their time in court to explain their signed affidavits of desistance clearing Joavan of any criminal liability, Talisay City Prosecutor Marshall Rubia said yesterday.

“They will be given a chance to explain the circumstances that led them into signing their affidavits,” Rubia said.

This, he added, if the defense will present the affidavits of desistance of Merceditha, 46, and Winston, 18, in court.

Rubia said the prosecutor’s office no longer has jurisdiction over the serious illegal detention and robbery charges against Joavan, as these have already been elevated to court.

Merceditha, a widow, earlier accused Joavan of taking away a 21-inch Sanyo television and a DVD player from her vulcanizing shop in Tabunok last August.  - Sun Star Cebu
