The national government also assured Mayor Janice and the families of the other victims that justice will be sought over the death of their loved ones. One of the suspects in the Roel Degamo case named Cong. Arnie Teves as the alleged mastermind behind the plot.

Teves was in abroad when the suspect implicated him in the case. His travel clearance expired last March 9 but he refused to go home citing his concern over his safety. The House of Representatives suspended him from his congressional seat for 60 days.

Several authorities are calling for Cong. Arnie Teves to go home to the Philippines and face the accusations. The authorities also assured to extend security to the Negros Oriental 3rd District Representative but he refused to go home still saying he cannot face the threats on his life.

Based on a recent report on ABS-CBN News, the Department of Justice (DOJ) confirmed that Cong. Arnie Teves is being considered as one of the possible masterminds behind the death of Gov. Roel Degamo.

According to Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla, there are possibly two to three possible masterminds behind the killing of Gov. Degamo that the authorities are looking into. He stressed that there were already threats to the life of the Governor even before the attack happened.
