A HEARING on the petition for writ of habeas corpus filed in behalf of Amy Pond aka suspected New People’s Army (NPA) member Adelfa Toledo was heard this morning at the sala of acting presiding Judge Marivic Trabajo-Darat of the Cebu City Regional Trial Court Branch 17.

Lawyer Ian Manticajon, legal counsel of Pond, insisted that she is not the same pond as Toledo. He said the ID cards allegedly recovered from her with the name “Adelfa Toledo” are fake.

Lawyer Inocencio dela Cerna who represented the Criminal Investigation Detection Group (CIDG), said the writ of habeas corpus is not the proper legal remedy to question Pond’s detention since there was basis for the arrest warrant and it was properly served to her.

The hearing continues at 1:30 pm Tuesday.
