THE Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in Northern Mindanao filed Monday, October 7, three criminal cases against two women arrested during a raid that killed suspected criminal group leader Marvin Fajardo and two others.
CIDG-Northern Mindanao Director Raymund Liguden said the two sisters Irish Naguita, 33, and Richelle Naguita, 25, have undergone inquest proceedings Monday, October 7, at the City Prosecutor's Office.
Liguden said the charges they filed were illegal possession of firearms, harboring a criminal in relation to obstruction of justice, and direct assault upon the agents of authorities.
He said the sisters denied involvement of Fajardo's criminal group, a claim doubted by police.
Liguden said they are part of the criminal group based on intelligence.
He also disclosed that the sisters are under emotional distress after learning Fajardo's syndicate.
"Under emotional distress lang siya kasi obviously, di daw nila alam na malaking sindikato yung nasamahan nila. I mean, parang yung takot nila, lumaki, noong ipinakita namin yung mga previous records ni Marvin Fajardo," he said.
"Pero nonetheless, since they are under our custody, we ensure their safety while cases are being filed against them," Liguden added.
The Fajardo criminal group is allegedly involved in gun for hire, illegal drugs and robbery extortion activities operating in Batangas City, Laguna, National Capital Region and other nearby provinces in Luzon.
