Quiboloy, 5 others evade warrant of arrest
DAVAO CITY- Law enforcement authorities simultaneously served warrant of arrest against Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) leader Pastor Apollo Quiboloy and five trusted workers.

Police Regional Office (PRO) 11 spokesman Major Catherine Dela Rey said the authorities served the warrants for Quiboloy and five others at around 4 a.m Monday, June 10 at the pastor's properties: KOJC in Buhangin, Glory Mountain, and prayer mountain in Barang Tamayong Calinan District, this city.

However, the operatives including teams from Special Action Force, Davao City Police Office, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, and a team from Regional Mobile Force Battalion did not find Quiboloy and the other suspects in said areas.

The warrants follow an extensive investigation on criminal charges allegedly committed by Quiboloy and company, Dela Rey said.

She said the operation was launched after they received information about the presence of Quiboloy and company at said areas.

Quiboloy and his co-accused have been facing criminal charges for violating anti-child abuse law, sexual abuse under Republic Act 7810, and anti-trafficking in person act of 2000. These cases are pending before the issuing courts in Davao and Pasig City.

Quiboloy alongside Tamayong Barangay Captain Cresente Canada, Paulene Canada, Sylvia Camanes, Jackiely Roy, and Ingrid Canada remain at large.

The followers and members of KOJC met the arresting officers with a protest at the gate who they demanded justice for the evangelist.

Dela Rey made the assurance that the latest actions of law enforcement officers underscores their commitment to uphold the rule of law.

Dela Rey admits that at first there was resistance among the supporters, but then, she said the arresting team were able to serve the arrest warrants peacefully.

She said the PNP is dedicated to ensuring that no violators of law are beyond the reach of the long arm of the law.

The primary goal is to enforce the law while ensuring the safety and rights of all citizens, especially the Filipino people, she said.

The Regional Police urged supporters and followers of KOJC to remain calm and cooperate with the ongoing implementation of court processes.

Authorities emphasize that their action is based on the lawful order of the court and due process to address the serious charges.
