[G.R. No. 132726.June
PEOPLE vs. CASTRO
Quoted hereunder, for your information, is a resolution of this
Court dated JUN 10 2003.
G.R. No. 132726 (People of
the Phils. vs. Jessee "George" Castro, Jesus L. De Los
Angeles and Edgardo E.Reyes @ "Ompong".)
In this Court's decision, promulgated on. 23
July 2002, appellants Jesus L. De Los Angeles and Edgardo E. Reyles
a.k.a. Ompong, were found guilty beyond reasonable doubt of being accomplices
in the crime of kidnapping for ransom and were each sentenced to suffer the
penalty of reclusion perpetua. It
would appear, however, that the names of two of appellants were inadvertently
written as Edgardo, Reyes, a.k.a. Ompong, and Jesus de los Reyes.
WHEREFORE, in order to
rectify the apparent clerical error, the Court RESOLVES to correct -
(1) The title of the case
"PEOPLE OF THE PHILS. vs. JESSEE 'GEORGE' CASTRO, JESUS L. DE LOS
ANGELES and EDGARDO..E. REYLES © 'OMPONG'."
(2) The dispositive
portion to thus read:
