Double murder complaints have been filed on Thursday (September 14) before the Department of Justice (DOJ) against two policemen and a taxi driver for their alleged involvement in the killing of 19-year-old former University of the Philippines (UP) student Carl Angelo Arnaiz and his 14-year-old friend, Reynaldo “Kulot” de Guzman.
Assisted by the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO), Carl’s and Kulot’s parents filed separate complaint affidavits before the DOJ asking that PO1 Jeffrey Perez and PO1 Ricky Arquilita, both policemen of Caloocan City Police Community Precinct 2, be indicted for murder under Article 248 of the Revised Penal Code (RPC) for the deaths of the two youths.
In their affidavit, Carl’s parents, Carlito and Eva, asked the DOJ to indict for murder taxi driver Tomas Bagcal who claimed being robbed by the former UP student last August 18.
“Dahil sa pakikipagsabwatan ni Tomas Marleo Bagcal sa mga pulis ng pumatay sa aming anak na si Carl Angelo, kung saan pinalalabas niya na siya ay hinoldap ng aming anak at nanlaban diumano sa mga pulis samantalang iba ang sinasabi ng pisikal na ebidensya at salaysay ng nakakitang saksi, siya ay aming hinahabla rin sa kasong murder,” read the couple’s complaint.
The parents stressed they didn’t believe Carl would resort to robbery “kahit na tumigil siya sa pag-aaral, may sariling negosyo si Carl Angelo.”
They cited Carl operated his own “sari-sari” store and earned money from helping his accountant aunt, Eva Arnaiz.
“Kaya’t imposible na maisip ni Carl Angelo na gumawa ng masama para magkapera lamang,” they said.
