The City Prosecutor Office recently dismissed two criminal charges filed against a policeman who was arrested along with an Abu Sayyaf sub-leader in this city last October.

Based on the prosecutor’s inquest resolution, charges of illegal possession of explosives and harboring criminal filed against PO3 Asbi Sahibol y Alian of Kaumpurna, Isabela City were dismissed due to insufficiency of evidence to establish probable cause.

Sahibol was ordered released from police custody.

The resolution was issued last November 6, 2012 after the accused signed a 15-day waiver.

Sahibol was arrested along with Abu Sulaiman in a fast food joint along Rizal St. last October 12 around 7:30 a.m.

Sulaiman was arrested on the strength of a warrant for kidnapping and serious illegal detention.

Sahibol, who was caught together with Sulaiman was also held for questioning,  but he was arrested after the lawmen recovered from his possession a belt bag containing eight blasting caps, one camera film container, assorted electrical wires, auxiliary plug with attached black wire, two pairs of auxiliary plugs, three switches and two pin light bulbs with attached wire and several documents. — Dan Toribio Jr.
