According to a reported, Arnel Belizaire was actually present and he was in possession of an assault rifle.

Deputy Arnel Belizaire has been under suspension--with a pay cut--due to his physical assault on Minister Phelito Doran.

In another incident he breached security at the Prosecutor's office so detainees could break free. He has also been known to procure illegal weapons for protests against the government.
