MANILA - Television host and journalist Raffy Tulfo posted bail after a Quezon City court issued a warrant of arrest against him and his brother, Erwin.

He said he has yet to receive the warrant issued by Judge Eleuterio Bathan of Quezon City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 92 and only heard about it via radio dzMM.

The warrants come on the heels of the court resolution finding probable cause against them in a libel case filed by SPO3 Abubakar Maglangit.

The brothers called him a gun-toting thief in a November 2011 episode of their TV show T3, which airs over TV5.
According to Tulfo, this is his 38th libel case.

He said they were surprised when they found out about the warrant since they were not aware that the case is still progressing.

He believes the fiscal must have something against him and his brothers.

Erwin, who is currently out of the country, was not able to post bail.
