One of several groups seeking justice for the murder of Atty. Mia Manuelita Mascariñas-Green will be looking into possible lapses in the implementation of a search warrant by police in Tagbilaran City and Panglao against the suspects.

The Justice for Mia, Kalinaw sa Bohol Movement which is comprised mostly of lawyers and will officially be launched today at the Metro Centre Hotel will focus on how authorities handled the supposed hot pursuit operation against the suspects.

Pat Ruiz, one of the movement’s conveners, said that the initiative is intended to prevent similar incidents.

The group’s launching event will also be attended by representatives from various sectors who have joined the call for justice.

Meanwhile, the Provincial Peace and Order Council through its chairman Gov. Edgar Chatto clarified that the case is not yet considered solved.

It was made clear during the council’s meeting that a case can only be considered solved if cases are filed and the suspects are already in the custody of authorities.

Currently, the case is merely considered “cleared” as suspects remain at large while cases have already been filed against them.

Last week, charges of murder and multiple attempted murder were filed against the suspects Lloyd Gonzaga, Romarico Benegian and two John Does who police believe are no longer in the province.

However, manhunt against the suspects is being sustained, according to police authorities.

On February 15, Green was ambushed and killed at an intersection in Sitio Mahayahay, Brgy. Dao at 4:27 p.m. allegedly by the four men.
