I, JUNEL SAN JUAN, of legal age, Filipino, and with address at
Bataraza, Palawan, after having been sworn in accordance with law,
hereby depose and state that:
2. On September 29, 2010, around 8a.m., five men, four police
officers and one civilian, barged into my house. They claimed that I
committed robbery with homicide. Despite my protests, the said
persons still arrested me without showing a warrant of arrest;
3. After my arrest, the five men then went to Adolfo Montesa’s
house, and arrested him as well without showing a warrant of arrest;
4. Adolfo and I were brought to the police station in Brooke’s
Point, and there we were made to join a police line-up. After which,
we were taken aside and handcuffed by SPO1 ALEXANDER
CONSTANTINO, to reiterate, the said acts were done despite the
absence of an arrest warrant. Up to this date, no warrant of arrest has
been shown to me or Adolfo Montesa;
5. According to my lawyer, under Article 269 of the Revised
Penal Code for the crime of Unlawful Arrest:
The penalty of arresto mayor and a fine not
exceeding 500 pesos shall be imposed upon any

The elements being (1) offender arrests or detains another person,
(2) Purpose of the offender is to deliver him to the proper authorities,
and (3) Arrest or detention is not authorized by law or there is no
reasonable ground thereof;

7. More so, the arrest does not fall under any of the three
exceptions of warrantless arrest as provided by Rule 113, Section 5,
of the Rules of Court, those being:
