Hot news, positive comments re Jason Aguilar Ivler case
Ivler insisted continued confinement at QMMC
Ivler asked the Quezon City RTC for his continued confinement at the Quirino Memorial Medical Center until he fully recovers from his 2nd colostomy operation. Ivler- a suspect in the killing of the son of a top Malacanang official- voiced out his intension through his lawyers. Through a 7-page motion for reconsideration, the lawyers said there’s no enough evidence to show that the Q.C. jail has facilities or staff to care for a detainee with colostomy.
Reason behind the transfer
Ivler was ordered transferred last April 6 from the QMMC to a separate cell for foreign inmates inside Q. C. prison facility. Ivler’s lawyers stated that Ivler’s colostomy makes him defecate using a colostomy bag which condition is abnormal considering the fact that he has no control as of yet over his bowel movement. Dr. Romeo Abary stated the fact that a colostomy reversal has a mortality rate of 50% Dr. Abary is one of Ivler’s attending physicians. (mb/E.Y.Santos)
The Quezon City Court handling the trial of the murder case against suspect JASON iVLER issued a gag order on both lawyers of the defense and prosecution. They were told not to give any statement to the media that might influence the trial of the case, said QC regional Trial Court Judge Alexander Balut during the April 13 hearing.
Ivler is cited in another case besides Ebarle
Jason Ivler is a suspect in the shooting to death on Nov. 18, 2009 of Renato Ebarle Jr during a traffic incident. The road rage victim is the son of a Malacanang executive. A nephew of singer-composer Freddie Aguilar- the accused had some experiences in the show business and, according to Freddie Aguilar- was an American government soldier in Iraq. Earlier Ivler had been charged for the death of presidential adviser Nestor Ponce during a car collision in 2004.
First witness testimony
The prosecution presented its first witness in the person of Chief Inspector Mamerto Bernabe Jr., the police medico- legal officer who conducted the autopsy on the victim. Chief Inspector Bernabe testified that Ebarle appeared to have raised his hands in self-defense while the assailant was shooting him. (MST-Roy Pelovello)
