MANILA, Jan. 19 — A Manila Metropolitan trial court judge on Tuesday night ordered the release of Marlene Aguilar, mother of road rage suspect Jason Ivler, from the custody of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) after posting P12,000 bail on charges of obstruction of justice.

Aguilar was no longer brought to Manila MTC and it was her lawyer Aguilar Mitzell Arthur Christian Magdaong who posted bail in behalf of his client.

Judge Joel Lucasan of Manila MTC Branch 27 signed the release order at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

“Atty. Magdaong went to the Manila MTC in behalf of Aguilar after getting the copy of information from the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (RTC) where the case for obstruction of justice against Aguilar was filed,” lawyer Alexis Medina, another lawyer of Aguilar, told reporters at the NBI compound.

From Quezon City RTC, Medina said Magdaong proceeded to Manila MTC around 6 p.m. for the posting of bail.

Deputy Director for Intelligence Services lawyer Ruel Lasala said the NBI readied the process for Aguilar’s release from NBI jail. As part of the regular routine, Aguilar has already undergone medical check-up late Tuesday afternoon.

“This is routine. There is need for medical check-up to show that she is in good health when we release her after the posting of bail,” Lasala said. (PNA)
