MANILA, April 5 – The Pasay City Regional Trial Court (RTC) is now hearing the criminal charges filed against the two accomplices of Tita Cacayan, the alleged recruiter of drug courier Sally Ordinario-Villanueva who was executed in China on March 30.

Charged in separate criminal information sheets filed by Assistant State Prosecutors Michael Vito Cruz and Stewart Allan Mariano before the Pasay City RTC in March 2010 were Elpidio Gonzales and Jhun Enumeng for violation of Republic Act No. 9165, otherwise known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

Both Gonzales and Enumeng were accused of transporting 34 pieces of tubular capsules suspected of containing heroin at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Also seized from the suspects were six pieces of capsules believed to contain heroin.

Records of the case showed that the two respondents allegedly used Jason Ordinario, the younger brother of Sally, to transport the prohibited items to another country by means of swallowing the capsules containing the illegal drugs.

On the other hand, Jason pointed to Cacayan as the one who recruited him and his older sister in the illegal activity. (PNA)
