SANTIAGO, Ilocos Sur — A 26-year-old woman was nabbed by the police Thursday night for allegedly posting derogatory remarks on Facebook in Brgy. Bigbiga, Santiago.
Police chief Lt. Godofredo Ribuyaco, identified the arrested suspect as Aliza Gasatan AKA “Arah Ancheta“, 26, of Silag, Sta. Maria.
Ribuyaco said the suspect denied the charges, claiming that someone posted a comment using her FB account.
“The suspect claimed she was not the one who posted it, but when we checked in their barangay, the people there certified that she was the same Aliza Gasatan,” said Ribuyaco in a telephone interview.
Ribuyaco said that the name in the warrant of arrest was different but the picture of the suspect was the same of that Gasatan’s.
