The Department of Justice had just filed two murder charges against Sen. Lacson for his involvement in the double murder case. It was filed by a DOJ panel lead by Senor State Prosecutor Peter Ong at the Manila RTC.
Part of the decision was based on the affidavit submitted by former police officer Cezar Mancao. Mancao was a member of the defunct Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Task Force, headed by Lacson while also serving as chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in 2000.
The judge has now 10 days to review the records whether to issue the arrest. The filing was made Thursday, January 7, 2009.
