G.R. No. 170562


Two separate informations were filed before the Regional Trial Court of Roxas City
charging petitioner with violation of Section 2(a) of COMELEC Resolution No. 6446
(gun ban), and Section 1, Paragraph 2 of Republic Act No. (R.A.) 8294 (illegal
possession of firearm). That occurred on May 12, 2004 in Roxas City.

Celino contends that through certiorari he “cannot be prosecuted for illegal possession of
firearms if he was also charged of having committed another crime of violating the
Comelec gun ban under the same set of facts. As mentioned in the said law of R.A. 8294
which states:

“…Provided, however, that no other crime was committed by the person arrested.

"If homicide or murder is committed with the use of an unlicensed firearm, such use of an
unlicensed firearm shall be considered as an aggravating circumstance.

"If the violation of this Section is in furtherance of or incident to, or in connection with
the crime of rebellion or insurrection, sedition, or attempted coup d'etat, such violation
shall be absorbed as an element of the crime of rebellion, or insurrection, sedition, or
attempted coup d'etat”


Whether or not the mere filing of an information for gun ban violation against him
necessarily bars his prosecution for illegal possession of firearm


The accused can be convicted of illegal possession of firearms, provided no other crime
was committed by the person arrested.
when the other offense involved is one of those enumerated under R.A. 8294, any
information for illegal possession of firearm should be quashed because the illegal
possession of firearm would have to be tried together with such other offense, either
considered as an aggravating circumstance in murder or homicide, or absorbed as an
element of rebellion, insurrection, sedition or attempted coup d’etat. Conversely, when
the other offense involved is not one of those enumerated under R.A. 8294, then the
separate case for illegal possession of firearm should continue to be prosecuted. Petition
