MANILA - The long-awaited verdict on the Maguindanao Massacre case will be out on the morning of December 19.


The 9 a.m. promulgation of judgment on the multiple murder case will be held at the Quezon City Jail Annex at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City, according to a notice issued by Judge Jocelyn Solis-Reyes.


The Supreme Court gave Solis-Reyes until December 20 to promulgate a decision, granting a 30-day extension she had asked for because of the sheer volume of case records.


Fifteen people surnamed Ampatuan, including brothers Andal Jr., Zaldy, and Sajid, are among the 197 individuals accused of conspiring to murder 58 people on a hill in Ampatuan town, Maguindanao on November 23, 2009.
