Risa Hontiveros Charged With Kidnapping, Wiretapping, And Obstruction Of Justice By 'Cong. Jing'

During the case of the 17-year-old Kian Delos Santos' death in the hands of the police, Senator Risa Hontiveros was the first politician to ever go to the wake, for publicity or revenge, who knows?

She also got hold of three witnesses and took custody of them, she reportedly detained them in the hands of a Bishop Pablo David.

Furthermore, it can be remembered that sometime during the first week of September, Hontiveros called for the resignation of DOJ Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre. Her reasons were based on a photo of Aguirre "plotting" to file a case against her for kidnapping.

In the said text message, Aguirre was said to have been talking to a certain Cong. Jing, which turned out to be former Negros Occidental Rep. Jing Paras, who in turn kept up to what he said in the leaked text message.

On Monday, Paras filed cases against Hontiveros for kidnapping, obstruction of justice, and wiretapping.

In an interview after he filed the complaint, Paras said that the filing was a response to the challenge of the lady senator.
"Since she challenged us to file a case, pinag-aralan namin."
The kidnapping case was filed because of the accusation that Hontiveros took custody of the three witnesses during the hearing. A part of the complaint read:
"It is also very clear that she kept custody of these children from the period of Aug. 19, 2017 to Sept. 3, 2017 and turned over to the Senate custody only on Sept. 4, 2017 to testify in the Senate investigation, and then again took control and custody of the minors after said Senate hearing and placed them in the care of a certain Bishop Pablo David."
Hontiveros also publicly roasted herself when she showed the photo she received of Aguirre texting. The complaint cited the Anti-Wiretapping law or Republic Act 4200, which reads “It shall be unlawful for any person, not being authorized by all the parties to any private communication or spoken word, to tap any wire or cable, or by using an other device or arrangement, to secretly overheard, intercept or record such communication…"

A part of the complaint read:

“The full text exchanges which were illegally recorded by a device upon the orders of Hontiveros-Baraquel… These text exchanges which were illegally recorded through a device, in this case a camera, was transformed into a picture by the photographer who made the secret recording…”
The charges against Hontiveros also include obstruction of justice for allegedly refusing to turn over the 13 year old minor witness to PAO or Public Attorney's Office and NBI National Bureau of investigation.

A part of the complaint read:
“refused to turn over the witness… to PAO and NBI in the interest of justice and in carrying the purpose of solving a murder perpetrated on Kian Delos Santos,”
“Her refusal is an act which constitutes obstruction of justice, committed by means of preventing witnesses from testifying in any criminal proceeding,”
“It is pretty obvious that her refusal to turn over the witnesses to PAO and DOJ was motivated by politics with the sheer purpose of using the witness as a tool in her propaganda against her political enemies,”
