NBI conducts parallel probe on ex-gov’t worker’s murder

THE NATIONAL Bureau of Investigation-South Eastern Mindanao (NBI-SEMRO) already submitted subpoenas to different personalities, including the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) office, regarding the murder of Lilian Nieva last Sept. 29.

In an interview on Wednesday afternoon, NBI-SEMRO director Archie Albao told TIMES that Noel Nieva, the victim’s brother, filed a complaint before their office on Oct. 9.

“Yes we have conducted a parallel investigation,” Albao said.

“We have already sent several subpoenas to different personalities & communications to different agencies of the government, in the barangay, in the PSC (Philippine Sports Commission), etc.,” he added. 

Recently, city police director Col Alberto Lupaz confirmed they already have persons of interest in the crime. However, he did not disclose further information as the investigation is ongoing.

“We have at least 2-3 [Persons of Interest]. Meron kilala meron din hindi but again, we still have to conduct further verification on their persons,” the NBI regional director added.

The DCPO previously theorized that the former PSC worker knew the perpetrators who murdered her inside her house in Deca Homes Talomo, considering there was no forcible entry.

Earlier, the members of Oplan Siyasat reviewed all the evidence and witnesses’ testimonies regarding the murder of Nieva, 57. 

“Possibly the suspect was already inside the house prior to the incident,” city police spokesperson Capt. Hazel Tuazon added.

Nieva’s former boss, ex-PSC chairman William Ramirez, expressed confidence in the ability of the authorities to give the family justice.
