Ivler's mother liable for harboring a fugitive — Gonzalez

January 18, 2010 2:23 pm 

MANILA, Jan. 18 — Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Raul M. Gonzalez, Sr. on Monday said that the mother of Jason Ivler Aguilar can be criminally charged for harboring a fugitive of the law.

Agents of the National Bureau of Investigations (NBI) arrested on Monday morning Jason Ivler in his residence in Blue Ridge, Quezon City.

He is the suspect in the fatal road rage shooting of a son of a Malacañang official.

"The mother of Ivler (Marlene Aguilar) can be charged because she was harboring a fugitive," Gonzalez stressed.

"She should also be held accountable for obstruction of justice," Gonzalez said.

Ivler was found hiding in a basement room in the house while his mother went into hysterics in trying to hold in abeyance the operations of NBI agents.

Ivler was charged for the shooting of Renato Victor Ebarle, Jr. on November 18, 2009.

Ebarle Jr.'s father is an Undersecretary at the Office of the Presidential Chief of Staff.

The government tapped the International Police Organization's (Interpol) help after Ivler's mother claimed that her son had fled to Hawaii.

Last December, Qatar authorities nabbed a namesake of Ivler, Jason Aguilar, and deported him to the Philippines earlier this month. (PNA)V3/PTR
