Two alleged members of the ISIS-inspired Maute group have undergone inquest proceedings for rebellion, an official of the Department of Justice (DOJ) said on Saturday.
“Another inquest was conducted by [DOJ] Panel 2 [of prosecutors] today at 11:00 am Saturday, against two respondents, Jadzrie Harad Saabdula and Jamal Kalib Jamil for rebellion,” said DOJ Undersecretary Erickson Balmes in a statement.
The inquest proceedings took place at Camp Evangelista in Cagayan de Oro City.
Balmes said Saabdula, who was a nurse in Jolo, was nabbed while he was buying a large volume of medicines such as pain reliever and antibiotics.
“He allegedly provided medical aid to the combatants,” Balmes said.
The inquest came days after government prosecutors filed rebellion charges against 12 other suspected Maute members who were arrested at a hospital in Pagadian City last week.
