PIA Press Release
2006/10/25

6 ‘coup plotters’ transferred to Cavite naval base Wednesday

Quezon City (25 October) -- NAVY Chief Vice Admiral Mateo Mayuga has ordered the transfer of six Marine officers linked to an alleged February coup plot to a naval base in Cavite City after Armed Forces chief of staff General Hermogenes Esperon Jr. raised the alarm over an alleged plan to spring them from detention in Fort Bonifacio.

Navy spokesman Lieutenant Commander Giovanni Carlo Bacordo said the six will be moved to Fort San Felipe.

"We are just following orders from the chief of staff [Esperon] to transfer them to a secure place," Bacordo told reporters.

The six -- Colonels Ariel Querubin, Orlando de Leon, Januario Caringal, Armando Bañez, Custodio Parcon, and Achilles Segumalian -- share the Bonifacio Naval Station (BNS) staff house with their ex-commandant, Major General Renato Miranda, and six other Marine officers linked to the botched uprising.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Esperon said he ordered Mayuga to tighten security for the six after receiving reports that "some elements will spring them [from detention]."

Bacarro said Mayuga is authorized under Article of War (AW) 70 (detaining power of the commander) to choose the detention facility for subordinates facing courts martial. (PIA) [top]
