Report: Court orders arrest of Tulfo brothers for libel
MANILA, Philippines–An arrest warrant has been issued by the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (RTC) against broadcasters Erwin and Raffy Tulfo for libel charges, a radio report said.
Judge Eleuterio Bathan of the Quezon City RTC Branch 92 issued the arrest warrant on Tuesday morning after it found probable cause on the complaint filed by Senior Police Officer 3 Abubakhar Maglangit, the report added.
Abubakhar said the Tulfo brothers made libelous remarks after they called the police officer a thief in their televised program.
He said the Tulfo brothers maligned him in the Nov. 19, 2011, episode of “T3.”
Raffy allegedly called him a shameless, thieving policeman who went around pointing his gun to scare off people while his brother Erwin called him a cop who steals water and even had the gall to be angry when caught and censured.
The Tulfo brothers are expected to post bail, the report said.
