The Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office has ordered the release of mayoral candidate Vincent “Bingbong” Crisologo and recommended further investigation of the complaints filed against him by police.

In a resolution, Assistant City Prosecutor Felomena Apostol-Lopez said that “a scrutiny of the joint affidavit of arrest and the evidence presented failed to justify”

The resolution was released around 2 p.m. Monday, about five hours after Crisologo underwent inquest proceedings at the Quezon City Hall of Justice.

Crisologo and his companions appeared during the inquest with their attorneys after being in police custody for nearly 12 hours.

The Quezon City Police District has filed multiple complaints against Crisologo, including vote buying and selling, obstruction of justice, unjust vexation, disobedience and resisting arrest, direct assault upon an agent or person in authority, and illegal detention.

The QCPD also filed vote buying and selling charges against 43 volunteers of Crisologo.

The resolution pointed out, however, that the evidence submitted by the complainant did not show “a clear offer to purchase a vote and acceptance of the offer.”

As for the other charges filed against Crisologo, the resolution said the “circumstances surrounding the incident and the exact participation of each of the respondents have to be threshed out more thoroughly in a full-blown preliminary investigation.”

After he was released, Crisologo cast his vote in Barangay Sta. Cruz, Quezon City.
