Degamo Case: DOJ Names Alleged Mastermind Arrested by Authorities

Update on Degamo Case amid Investigation

DEGAMO CASE – The Department of Justice (DOJ) named the alleged mastermind arrested by the authorities over the death of Governor Roel Degamo.

Last March 4, countless hearts were left shocked and grieving over the incident that transpired at the compound of Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo. Men wearing pixelated uniform attacked the Governor and he, his ally, and several civilians died due to the incident.

Degamo was rushed to the hospital but he did not make it. His wife, Pamplona Mayor Janice Degamo, called for justice over her husband’s death – which the national government assured the Governor’s family and the families of other victims.

During the incident, several civilians were at the compound of the Governor to seek for help. Currently, at least eight (8) suspects in the case are in the hands of the authorities.

Last March 31, Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Boying Remulla said that a main player in the Degamo case was nabbed by the authorities outside Negros. He believes that the said unidentified persona then is a possible mastermind in the slaying of the late Negros Oriental Governor.

Recently, DOJ named the alleged mastermind in the Degamo case arrested. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the alleged main player in the case arrested by the authorities was identified as “Marvin Miranda”.

According to Remulla, he is like the director and the casting director in the plot as he is allegedly the one who contacted the men who performed the motive. The DOJ Secretary also revealed that Congressman Arnie Teves appears to be the main mastermind in the killing of the late former Negros Oriental Governor.

Currently, Teves has yet to return in the Philippines. He is suspended from his congressional seat for 60 days.
