Statement of Lacierda on the conviction of Raymond Dominguez


Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda:On the conviction of Raymond Dominguez
[April 17, 2012]
Earlier today, Raymond Dominguez was convicted of carnapping, and sentenced to a minimum period of 17 years and a maximum of 30 years imprisonment. Judge Wilfredo T. Nieves of RTC Branch 84 handed down the decision with impartiality and swiftness, taking only a year and four months to resolve the case.
Dominguez was part of the notorious syndicate responsible for a spate of carnapping incidents that made headlines last year. Other cases against Dominguez and his cohorts remain pending in other branches of the Malolos Regional Trial Court.
We congratulate Public Prosecutor Maureen Abad Moises for her capable handling of the case. Its resolution proves that with honest and committed public servants, our judicial system can work effectively toward fulfilling its duties to the public.
