Ian Griffiths arrested in connection with Philippines child murder of 6 year old Ellah Joy Pique.

Ian GriffithsIn recent weeks if you have been following the court case being reported on television in regards to Ian Griffiths and his girlfriend Bella Ruby Santon you would get the bigger picture of what has happened with accusations from the defence that the Police have been tampering with evidence altering a vehicle registration etc.

But the man hunt continues like the case and a warrant was issued for the arrest of Ian Griffiths by the Filipino authorities on the 1st of April at which point searches were made and Ian Griffiths was found and arrested at an address in London.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said:” On April 1, a 51-year-old man was arrested by the Metropolitan Police under Section 9 of the Offences Against the Person Act, and was taken into custody at a north London police station.

"He was subsequently bailed to mid-April, pending further enquiries.”

The case although based around the murder of Ellah Joy Pique is being tied into an alleged child sex ring on the internet the couple were involved in.

My big concern is that although Ian Griffiths is the closest match to the police sketch the allegation of tampering with his vehicle registration does open up the question of has any other evidence been tampered with or planted? I would say time would tell but this is the Philippines and there are plenty of other people sat in prison here waiting for trial many of who are innocent.
