Netherlands’ Detectives Arrest Philippines Writer Jose Sison Over Murder Case

loading...

Amsterdam– The National Criminal Investigation Department(NCID) has arrested a Philippines writer, Jose Sison on Monday evening.

Speaking to our reporters, detectives have said that the suspect is accused of living in Netherlands illegally. They, however, claimed that several accusations are placed against him including three assassinations that took place in the Philippines.

Detectives added that his assassination charges that were heard in 2007 but dropped due to lack of sufficient evidence have been revived since enough evidence was gathered.

“We have arrested Mr.Sison not because he’s living here illegally but because his 2007 case has received sufficient evidence. He is accused of murder. We have been instructed to arrest him.” said police spokesman, Steveson Jeff.

He added that “The court will consider deporting him back to the Philippines imprisonment or jail him here.”

Those who witnessed his arrest say that detectives were accompanied by two Filipinos who are believed to be ‘members of the Philippines Presidential Security Group (PSG).

REVIVED CASES
August 28, 2007, The communist leader was arrested for his alleged involvement from the Netherlands in three assassinations that took place in the Philippines: the murder of Romulo Kintanar in 2003, and the murders of Arturo Tabara and Stephen Ong in 2006.

There were no plans to hold the trial in the Philippines since there was no extradition request and the crimes Jose Maria Sison is accused of were committed in the Netherlands. Dutch lawyer, Victor Koppe said that Sison would enter a plea of not guilty during his indictment. He could have faced the maximum penalty of life imprisonment.

The Dutch District Court of The Hague on June 5, 2008 decided in camera “that the Public Prosecution Service may continue the prosecution of Jose Maria Sison for involvement in, among other matters, a number of murders committed in the Philippines in 2003 and 2004; that while the prosecution’s case file still held insufficient evidence, the investigation was ongoing and should be given time to unfold.”

LAST HEARD
Sison was last week accusing President Duterte of “sabotaging” the peace talks and called for the President’s possible ouster.

Sison also called Duterte a “big liar” after cancelledident said the talks were canceled because the communist rebels were proposing a “coalition government.”

This seems to have triggered his problems in Netherlands.

Sison has been in self-exile in the Netherlands since 1987, after the collapse of the negotiations under then President Corazon Aquino.
