OFW Ortinez's 'laglag-bala' case dismissed –Pasay City prosecutor
The Pasay City prosecutor has “dismissed for lack of probable cause” the illegal possession of ammunition charge against Overseas Filipino worker Gloria D. Ortinez whom NAIA Aviation Security implicated in a “laglag bala” incident.
Senior assistant city prosecutor Willy Chan said Ortinez had “not intent to possess with malevolent intent to use” the bullet allegedly found in her baggage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
Ortinez denied she owned the bullet NAIA security said they found.
Images of Chan's resolution dismissing the case was posted late Wednesday evening on the Facebook account of Atty. Spocky Farolan, legal counsel of Ortinez.
Chan said the bullet presented during the inquest of Ortinez was “distinctively different” from the ammunition photographed which was presented as evidence against Ortinez.
The prosecutor said this “cast reasonable doubt as to the identity of the subject ammunition.” — ELR, GMA News
