DOJ ends probe on wife of slain Maute leader
Government prosecutors on Wednesday wrapped up their preliminary investigation into the charges filed against the wife of one of the slain leaders of the Maute terror group.
This as the Department of Justice Task Force Marawi completed the probe on the rebellion complaint filed by Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines-The Judge Advocate General (AFP-TJAG) against Najiya Dilangalen Karon-Maute, wife of Mohammad Maute, who died in a battle with government forces in Marawi City.
Najiya did not file a counter-affidavit to answer the rebellion complaint.
Najiya was arrested on Jan. 23, 2018 in Cotabato City.
The complaint was based on the testimony of a certain Martino Elyana who was abducted in Padian, Marawi City.
Elyana said he saw Najiya and her husband Mohammadhayan “Otto” Maute bringing food to members of the group at the Bato Mosque in June 2017.
Elyana said he managed to escaped the Maute lair in July 2017.
