The Arquillanos’ motion to bail will be decided by Branch 25 Presiding Judge Jerry Dicdican.

The Arquillanos were arrested by operatives of the Provincial Intelligence Branch (PIB) after the latter confiscated several firearms and a hand grenade from their house during a raid last Thursday, April 4.

Paredes earlier said that they would also ask the court to quash the search warrant used by the PIB during the operation which was issued by the Barili Regional Trial Court (RTC) due to questions of territorial jurisdiction./dbs
