Who else is interested to jail Menorca than the Iglesia Ni Cristo®? Who else was accused behind his illegal abduction in Sorsogon? Who else was behind in putting him to jail in Dasmariñas, Cavite from a false accusation by a false witness? Who else took him from Dasmariñas prison to Net25 owned and managed by the INC™ -- him, ratracting all allegations of abduction by alleged members of INC™ (SCAN)? Now that he is scheduled for a hearing for Writ of Amparo at the Court of Appeals, then the "Warrant of Arrest" was served, very timely. Ano 'yon, nagkataon lamang? At galing pa sa Mindanao ang kaso??? Then INC™ Spokesperson appeared on TV denying all the allegations that they (INC™) were behind the serving of warrant?! Kaya nilang magsinungaling ng harap-harapan?! Sinong pinaglololoko ng INC™!-CD2000

MANILA - (UPDATE 3 - 1:47 P.m.) Police arrested Wednesday morning former Iglesia ni Cristo minister Lowell Menorca II over a libel case filed the locally grown religious group.
In a radio interview, Menorca’s lawyer Trixie Angeles asked the police to bring Menorca to the Court of Appeals, where they have a scheduled hearing at 10 a.m.
Reacting to allegations that arresting officers may have gone against standard operating procedure, Philippine National Police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wilben Mayor said the Manila Police District will be ordered to explain how it carried out the arrest of Menorca.
“We will be asking the MPD to make an explanation on the arrest of the subject person,” Mayor told reporters at a press briefing in Camp Crame, adding that they have yet to receive the MPD’s report on the incident.
In August, Menorca’s colleague, also former INC minister Isaias Samson Jr. filed an illegal detention complaint against the religious group’s governing council called Sanggunian before the Department of Justice (DOJ). This ignited a five-day protest on EDSA by thousands of INC members, who invoked the separation of church and state under the Constitution.
The issue started July last year, on the eve of the religious group’s 101st founding anniversary when Angel Manalo, brother of executive minister Eduardo Manalo, and their mother Tenny Manalo posted a video on the Internet, asking for help. They said their lives were in danger and that some Iglesia ministers have been "illegally detained."
They also claimed there was corruption in the Iglesia.
The Manalo mother and son have since been expelled from group.
The Iglesia leadership denied the accusations.
