The Quezon City Regional Trial Court ordered the arrest of two officials of the Philippine Broadcasting Service for contempt of court in connection with estafa complaints filed by KAKAMMPI Chairperson Maria Fe P. Nicodemus in 2007.

QC RTC Judge Luisito G. Cortez who issued separate warrants recommended a no-bail arrest warrant for both.

“Wherefore, for failure to the said parties to submit a written explanation and to implement the said order of the court, let a corresponding warrant of arrest be issued against Director Tito Cruz
and Executive Assistant Jun Romana with no bail until they complied,” Cortez’s order read.

The court order came after the two failed to suspend dzRM station manager Edgardo Satira following a court decision in 2012 to suspend the latter.

In July 2011, the Office of the Ombudsman filed estafa and fraud charges along with a violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act against Satira before the QC lower court.
