NBI arrest teacher calling for Duterte's head for P50M

Huli ka Balbon!!!

A public school teacher made himself famous by posting online a reward of P50 million to anybody that can kill the President of the republic.

And now he is doubly famous because of the threat he made on social media he was arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

Ronnel Mas, 25 years of age, resident of Barangay North Poblacion, Sta. Cruz, Zambales was placed under the custody of the NBI after posting in his Twitter account message saying that “I will give  50 Million reward kung sino makakapatay kay Duterte (to anyone who can kill Duterte)."

NBI Officer-In-Charge Eric Distor said he immediately ordered its Dagupan District Office to track down and arrest Mas, a social sciences teacher at Taltal National High School (TNHS).
"Operatives of DADO then began to track subject MAS' whereabouts by tracing the links of the comments on his post. After determining his possible location, operatives of DADO lost no time and rushed to Barangay Poblacion North in Sta. Cruz, Zambales and coordinated with barangay officials resulting in the arrest of [the] subject," the NBI said in a statement.

Mas will be facing inquest proceedings in Manila for inciting to sedition in relation to the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, and for violating the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials.

Apology would not extinguish criminal liablity

Mas has since already apologized for his tweet against President Duterte, but the Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo Guevarra said such apology would not mean he can get away with his criminal responsibility.
"Apology is not one of the grounds for extinguishing criminal liability. I cannot feloniously injure another and get away with it by merely saying 'sorry'," Guevarra said in a statement.
