A member of the Alpha Phi Omega (APO) fraternity who voluntarily submitted himself to Vice President Jejomar C. Binay was released a few hours after he was subjected to investigation by the National Bureau of Investigation.

Anthony Nepomuceno was released Wednesday afternoon after undergoing investigation and processing by the NBI.

Special Investigator IV Cecilio Zamora, NBI spokesman, explained that Nepomuceno cannot be held for a long time as there is no case yet filed against him in connection with the Sept. 26 blast outside the De La Salle University (DLSU) on Taft Avenue, Manila.

Zamora said Nepomuceno did not surrender but voluntarily gave himself up to Binay. “It was not a surrender. He was released as there is no case filed against him at this time. There is also no warrant of arrest,” he said.

The NBI is set to file multiple frustrated murder and multiple attempted murder charges against Nepomuceno until Thursday at the Department of Justice (DoJ).

Zamora said the NBI continues tracking down two companions of Nepomuceno.
