A case of robbery-extortion recommended by the police to the City Prosecutor Office against a public school teacher and his uncle was dismissed due to lack of probable cause last week.

In an interview, Ibrahim Sahibul, an elementary school teacher and Yunus Khan Mohammad said they were released from detention following the prosecutor’s resolution junking the case last March 14, 2014.

Sahibul and Mohammad denied a police report that they were extorting another public school teacher when they were arrested in an alleged entrapment operation inside a restaurant along Gov. Avenue around 6 p.m.  last February 26.

Sahibul said it was another teacher who asked for their assistance to collect a debt from a certain Janela, also a teacher when they were collared.

The two cleared persons said that after they were placed under inquest proceeding, they availed of the so called 15-day waiver for further preliminary investigation until the case was dismissed.

Meanwhile, Sahibul on his part, filed a complaint with the Commission on Human Rights against the arresting officers as he believed that they were unlawfully arrested and detained for more than the prescribed hours of detention before they were taken to the fiscal office.

Mohammad was also contemplating to file separate criminal charges against the police. – Dan Toribio Jr.
