DOJ ready to lift arrest order vs. Lacson

March 21, 2011 11:17 pm 

MANILA, March 21 — The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday said that it is ready to lift the arrest order against fugitive Senator Panfilo "Ping" Lacson.

Such action will be done, once DOJ Secretary Leila De Lima confirms the resolution of the Court of Appeals (CA) that its earlier ruling was "immediately executory" nullifying the arrest warrant issued by the Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) against Lacson.

In a resolution, the CA denied the motion for reconsideration filed by the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) seeking to reverse and set aside the earlier ruling of the CA dismissing the double murder case against Lacson.

Lacson is accused of masterminding the Dacer-Corbito double murder case.

De Lima said that she has no other choice but respect the resolution of the CA.

De Lima has not yet received a copy of the resolution of the CA. (PNA) DCT/LOR/PTR/utb
