Diokno said that warantless arrests are still illegal. The abogado also said that if you are attending an inquest, it’s better to not sign any waiver until a lawyer is present to avoid detention.
He also noted that if the inquest prosecutor will file charges directly to the court, a bail can be posted by your abogado for your release or recognizance. Diokno emphasized that these processes are definitely vital and promoted their legal desk in case you need lawyer referrals.
