MANILA, Philippines --- The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Tuesday recalled the five subpoenas they issued to Sultan Jamalul Kiram III and members of his family.
It turned out that after meeting with Sultan Kiram in his room, the NBI agents left, bringing with them five subpoenas which they had served.
Pastor “Boy” Saycon, a friend and counselor of the sultan for 16 years, accompanied the NBI agents to the Kiram residence.
He said there was a “miscommunication” in serving the five subpoenas.
Saycon said that before the NBI agents stepped into the residence of the sultan, he had already coordinated with top official of the bureau for the family to not appear before the agency.
As a result, he said the NBI agents agreed to take back the five subpoenas they served.
Only Abraham Idjirani, spokesman of the Sultanate of Sulu, will appear voluntarily at the NBI on March 14, he said.
“There are no more subpoenas. He (Idjirani) will go there voluntarily,” said Saycon.
