MANILA, Philippines — Labing-limang pasahero ang isinugod sa Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center matapos masaktan at masugatan sa pagbaligtad ng sinasakyan nilang jeep sa Pampanga Street, corner Rizal Avenue sa Blumentrit Maynila, Linggo ng gabi.

Dinala din sa ospital ang dalawang pulis na sakay ng mobile patrol na unang nabangga ng jeep bago sumalpok sa center barrier at saka bumaliktad.

Ayon sa mga nakakita sa pangyayari, mabilis ang takbo ng jeep.

“Yung isang ho talagang tumilapon eh, pagbagsak po yung likod yung tumama,” kwento ni Rodel Arevalo.

“Hindi na nila napigil yung preno tingnan mo bumaligtad sila yung lahat ng nandito pasahero nila lahat yun,” saad naman ni Sammy Juiz, barangay tanod.

Sinabi naman ng opisyal ng mga pulis na sakay ng patrol car na nagpapatrolya sila nang mabangga ng jeep.

“Sa pagkakatingin ko dun sa ating patrol kinayod, papasok sila ditto sinalubong sila,” ani Blumentrit PCP Deputy Commander P/Insp. William Lopez.

Mabilis namang tumakas ang driver ng jeep pagkatapos ng insidente.

“Sana dun sa driver ng jeep eh lumantad siya para mapanagutan naman niya yung mga nangyari sa mga biktima natin, tsaka paalala lang dun sa mga driver magdahandahan hindi yung laging nagmamadali,” saad pa ni Lopez.

Samantala, aalamin din ng mga awtoridad kung nakuhanan ng Closed Circuit Television Camera ang pangyayari na posibleng makatulong sa kanilang imbestigasyon. (Benedict Galazan / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

Muntinlupa Police creates task group to investigate Santos slay case

Maris Federez   •   February 20, 2020

MUNTINLUPA CITY, Philippines — The Muntinlupa City Police has created a special investigation task group to focus on the killing of suspended Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) legal officer Atty. Frederick Anthony Santos.

The police said neither the closed-circuit television camera (CCTV) installed in the vicinity of the crime scene nor the dashcam of Santos’ vehicle was able to capture the shooting incident that took the life of the official.

Muntinlupa City Police chief PCol. Hermogenes Duque Cabe, however, said they can still check on all the CCTV in the possible route that the suspects took in fleeing the crime scene.
 
“Ongoing ang investigation pa rin hanggang ngayon,” Cabe said.

Based on the autopsy, Santos sustained two gunshots in the head, one on his neck, and three on his left arm.

Witnesses said the suspects left the crime scene on a motorcycle.

The Department of Justice, on the other hand, has earlier ordered the National Bureau of Investigation to conduct its own investigation on the killing of the suspended BuCor official.

The DOJ doesn’t discount the possibility that the shooting is connected with the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) controversy at the agency.

Santos was supposed to return to work on March 12 after the six-month suspension meted out on him by the Office of the Ombudsman due to anomalous implementation of the GCTA.

Meanwhile, Senator Ronald dela Rosa believes that the drug lords in the New Bilibid Prisons are behind the killing of Atty. Santos.

“’yung nagpapatay dyan sa mga tao natin sa BuCor, yan din yung mga nakakulong na drug lord dyan na kumbaga hindi nasunod yung kanilang kagustuhan. Marami pa yang pera at galamay sa labas na pwede kang ipapatay. Tinatakot nga ang mga judge, mga piskal,” dela Rosa said. —(from the report of Correspondent Sherwin Culubong) /mbmf

Screen capture of the CCTV footage showing the alleged mauling incident in Cebu City.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) has confirmed that the armed men in the viral video who beat up a man in Cebu City are cops.

PNP Chief PGen. Oscar Albayalde made the confirmation, saying that the personalities who assaulted an arrested drug suspect were indeed police officers. However, the PNP still refuse to disclose their identities.

The video, that was posted on Facebook, showed that the armed men were in uniform and were carrying high caliber firearms. The post was said to have been published by the victim’s cousin.

Albayalde also said investigation on the case is underway.

“According to Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management  (DIDM) talagang members ng PNP but they are under the custody already. The DIDM is taking the lead in investigating them,” he said. —Aileen Cerrudo (with reports from Lea Ylagan)

PNP pleased with passage of proposed restoration of subpoena powers to the PNP-CIDG

UNTV News   •   November 24, 2017

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) sees the passage of a proposed law in the Lower House of Congress which seeks to bring back subpoena powers to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), the investigating body of the PNP, as a huge help to the organization.

According to PNP-CIDG Chief P/Dir. Roel Obusan, the pace of their investigation of cases will become faster once they are given the power to issue a subpoena.

“More than happy. This is an organizational advancement for CIDG. We are looking forward to a better and faster investigative process in CIDG and the PNP as a whole… thanks to our legislators,” Obusan said.

CIDG National Capital Region Director PS/Supt. Wilson Asueta said that through the said law, it will be easier for them to retrieve necessary documents or even copies of CCTV footages.

“We can easily ask documentary evidence from concern individuals and entities so we can have it and use in the filing of cases,” Asueta said.

The CIDG said they are having difficulty investigating as they can retrieve limited information only that could serve as evidence.

“We cannot force them to produce documents to appear before us, so a mere invitation only, voluntary basis only,” Asueta said.

The chief of the CIDG, meanwhile, assured the public that they will not abuse their subpoena powers.

“It will not be abused. A subpoena can be checked, the person can consult lawyers and other learned individuals. It will not supplant rights of the people. In fact, this can lessen conduct of search warrants,” Obusan said.

Of all law enforcement bodies in the country, only the PNP has no power to issue subpoena unlike the national bureau of investigation, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Department of Justice.

This is why, the CIDG said, giving them the said power would help in the immediate resolution of the cases they are investigating.

The proposal giving the CIDG subpoena powers was passed in the Senate last January. – Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
