Subic rape victim files motion for change of venue

The Manila Times Correspondent

OLONGAPO CITY - The lawyers of the 22-year-old Subic rape victim have confirmed they filed a motion for change venue following the inhibition of the judge trying the case.

The lawyer Evalyn Ursua told The Manila Times in a telephone interview that they have filed a motion for change venue of the case.

Ursua refused to give further details until the Supreme Court receives the motion.

A staff from Branch 75 of the Regional Trial Court in Olongapo City said the scheduled raffle of the case Tuesday might not push through.

Earlier, Olongapo RTC Judge Renato Dilag had recused from the case. He reasoned that his son used to work with the law firm that is now representing Lance Cpl. Daniel Smith, one of the rape suspects.
