Jerramy Joson, who holds the notebook which allegedly lists those who received bribes in relation to the Ampatuan Massacre, claims she was threatened by two men who introduced themselves as Nationa Bureau of Investigation agents, GMA 7’s “24-Oras” program reported Saturday.

According to Joson, the two supposed NBI agents came to their home and spoke with her mother last Wednesday.

“Tapos, sinabi niya sa parents ko, iurong daw ‘yung kaso ko kay (Justice Department Undersecretary Francisco) Baraan, kasi, aanuhin daw niya ako ng kaso,” Joson said.

She added that the men allegedly called Baraan and put him on loud speaker. The report said the incident was caught on the CCTV camera of Joson’s store around 2 p.m.

Joson earlier filed a graft and corruption case against Baraan who she claimed asked for a bribe in exchange for a favorable decision in a separate carnapping case she filed.

Baraan has denied the allegations.

The name “Baraan” is also listed in the notebook held by Joson. The notebook is said to be originally owned by the wife of Atty. Arnel Manaloto, a former Ampatuan lawyer.

Meanwhile, NBI Anti-Graft Division Chief Atty. Rachel Marfil-Angeles said the notebook would be subjected to further forensic examinations.

“Ang notebook na yan isa sa mga key sa iniimbistigahan namin dahil nakalagay diyan ‘yung mga pangalan at what appears to be amounts given to certain people,” Marfil-Angeles said.

Joson, meanwhile, will visit the NBI next week to give a more detailed testimony. Andrei Medina/DVM, GMA News
