    Prosecutors seek justice in trial of 4 US marines

    The Manila Standard has this report, looking at proceedings in the trial of 4 US marines charged with raping a 22 year old last November:

    Olongapo City Prosecutor Prudencio Jalandoni yesterday said he will file a motion asking Judge Renato Dilag to reverse his decision suspending the arraignment of US S/Sgt. Chad Carpentier, L/Cpls. Daniel Smith, Keith Silkwood and Dominic Duplantis until Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez has resolved the motions for review submitted by the defense. Jalandoni said Dilag has to reconsider his decision because the DoJ secretary has 60 days to resolve the motions for review, while the court has only 30 days within which to set the arraignment from the time the case is filed. He said this situation could lead to a dangerous predicament since the prescribed period for the court to set the arraignment is running out.
