BREAKING: CA affirms arrest warrant against Ricky Recto




The  Court of Appeals' special Sixth Division on Tuesday sustained the  warrant of arrest issued against former Batangas vice governor and alleged druglord Ricky  Recto, older brother of Senator Ralph Recto.

Recto,  who remains missing, is accused of masterminding the assassination  attempt on former Batangas Gov. Armando Sanchez in June 2006.

Sanchez died in April this year during his re-bid against Governor Santos-Recto, brother-in-law of Recto.

According  to lawyer Ferdinand Topacio, the appellate court promulgated its  12-page decision which said "there is no doubt that a crime was  committed."

Topacio is the legal counsel for Sanchez, whose camp had offered a bounty of P1 million for Recto's arrest.

In  his statement, Topacio also quoted Sanchez's widow, former Sto. Tomas,  Batangas Mayor Edna Sanchez, as saying: “Now I know that (my late  husband) Arman can rest peacefully, knowing that the killers will be  brought before the bar of justice."

In June 2009,  the Justice Department found probable cause to charge Recto and several  others with double murder, frustrated murder and destruction of  property.

The case stemmed from the June 1, 2006  attack on Sanchez's vehicle inside the Batangas Provincial Capitol that  killed Sanchez's driver Luisito Icaro and close-in security PO2 Eric  Landicho.

The case is pending at the Batangas  Regional Trial Court.
