Erap may be included in Dacer probe – DOJ

Former President Joseph Estrada will be summoned to the new investigation on the 2000 murders of publicist Salvador Dacer and his driver Emmanuel Corbito if evidence points to him as the “Bigote” implicated in the testimony of former police senior superintendent Cezar Mancao II.

Speaking to reporters, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said yesterday the decision to summon Estrada would depend on the testimonies of Mancao and others accused in the murders, including former police superintendent Glenn Dumlao and former senior superintendent Michael Ray Aquino.

“If that reference to the former president as the alleged ‘Bigote’ (moustache) again crops up in the statements, then so be it – he will be included (in the reinvestigation),” she said.

“I am giving them a chance to really come clean. It’s either they would affirm their original statements, modify if warranted or completely change them.”
