Sa gilagdaang Joint Resolution sa City Prosecutors Office dated July 20, 2022, walay nakitang probable cause aron pasakaa’g kasong murder si Pepino.
Sa official statement usab sa pamilyang Mangacop, gawas nga homicide lang ang atubangon ni Pepino, daw nahimong birthday gift sa suspek ang desisyon diin kini mag-birthday karong adlawa (Hulyo 20, 2022).
“We pray that this is the usual process for every case and not simply because Dr. Pepino is rich and influential. We hope this downgrade to homicide is not just someone’s birthday gift to Dr. Pepino, as he will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow. The Family is expecting Dr. Pepino to post bail and go home today and to celebrate his birthday tomorrow. At the same time, we do not yet know how to commemorate Amierkhan’s birthday this Saturday, July 23, 2022,” tipik sa statement sa pamilyang Mangacop.
Padayon nga makigbisog ang pamilyang Mangacop aron makab-ot ang ilang singgit nga hustisya.
“The Family will discuss with our counsels our next move; in the meantime, we are asking for everyone’s prayers. We will continue to fight for justice for the murder of Amierkhan Pulalon Mangacop,” pamahayag sa pamilya.
