In the Yvonette Chua Plaza murder investigation, the SITG filed accusations against the suspects for murder, theft, and obstruction of justice.
For the previous president, Rodrigo Duterte, Durante oversaw the Presidential Security Group (PSG).
Durante said Plaza was a friend and even sympathized with her family, but he denied any role in the murder.
General Romeo Branwer Jr., the head of the Army, stated separately that Durante was let go “to make place for an impartial and complete investigation.”
In a statement to the media, Brawner stated, “The Army assures the public that this occurrence is not service related.”
Gultiano stated that members of the 1001st Infantry Brigade, stationed in Davao de Oro, were also prosecuted concerning the model’s murder.
They were identified as Staff Sergeant Gilbert Plaza, Private Class Delfin Sialsa, Corporal Adrian Cachero, Corporal Romart Longakit, Corporal Rolly Cabal, and Noel Hapitan.
According to the particular investigation task group, the Davao City Office of the City Prosecutor lodged the accusations against the Army officers.
Murder charges and accusations of obstructing justice are leveled against Durante and Licyayo. Sialsa and Cachero are accused of killing the victim and stealing their possessions.
Hapitan was charged as a murder accomplice, and Cabal was also accused of murder. A suspect who cannot be named was charged with aiding and abetting murder, and another person who cannot be named was charged with obstructing justice.
Another piece of evidence against Durante is a social media post made by the alleged victim in which she claims he physically abused her.
According to Gultiano, Licyayo allegedly supplied the logistical details required to carry out the murder.
Gultiano said that Cachero and Sialsa were the riders of the motorcycle. The accused squad Leader, Gilbert Plaza, was observed by Cabal and Longakit.
On December 29, Plaza was fatally shot outside of her Davao home. At first, Durante was thought to be a suspect in the case.
Army Official Denies Involvement In Davao Model Murder
A general in the Philippine Army, whose name has been linked to the murder of model-turned-businesswoman Yvonette “Yvonne” Chua Plaza, has come forward to deny any role in it and claim that he, too, was seeking justice for the death of the person he called his friend.
Former director of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) of former President Rodrigo Duterte Brig. Gen. Jesus Durante III emphasized that Plaza’s passing pained him. Plaza was shot and killed by motorcycle-riding men in a neighborhood in this city on December 29.
Durante, who is currently in charge of the 1001st Brigade of the Army and is based in the province of Davao de Oro, explained that Plaza’s death had brought attention to him due to a social media post she made in April 2022 that featured bruises and cuts on her face and identified him as the person who caused them.
