MANILA CITY, Philippines — Seven policemen involved in kidnapping and extortion of a civilian surrendered to the Philippine National Police  – Counter-Intelligence Task Force (PNP-CITF).

On August 11, police kidnapped a civilian from Barangay Longos in Malabon City.

The suspects asked for P100,000 to the victim’s parents in exchange for his freedom.

The victim’s parents immediately asked the help of the CITF.

A joint operation was conducted by the NPD and CITF but the suspects immediately found out.

The next day, the suspects surrendered and were identified as members of the Navotas PNP.

They are namely, PO1 Emmanuel Benedict Alojacin, PO1 Mark Ryan Mones, PO2 Jonnel Barocaboc, PO3 Kenneth Loria, PO1 Christian Bondoc, PO1 Jack Rennert Etcubañas and PO2 Jessrald Pacinio.

“However, mayroong kaming other investigations. Kung mapatunayan namin na naging neglectful siya, ang immediate supervisor kasi sila ay assigned sa intelligence. Kung ang intelligence officer na may hawak sa kanila is the direct responsible officer,” CITF director PSSupt. Jose Chiquito Malayo said.

(However, we have other investigations. If we can prove the negligence of the immediate supervisor because the suspects are assigned in intelligence. If the intelligence officer handling them is the direct responsible officer, then he will be sacked accordingly.)

CITF Director PSSupt. Jose Chiquito Malayo said it proves the effectiveness of their campaign against anomalous police.

“Naging effective ang supporting ng ating mga civilians dahil tuwing may insidente naka-abot agad sa atin at na-aksyunan, malamang noong araw marami talaga ito kaya lang hindi agad na-aksyunan so it was silent,” PSSupt. Malayo added.

(The support of our civilians are effective because every incident, we are immediately informed and we take action, of course before there are many incidents with no immediate action, so it was silent.)

Meanwhile, the seven policemen will be charged with kidnapping and physical injury. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

Trillanes, Sabio want kidnapping raps dismissed

(L-R) Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Atty. Jude Sabio

Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Atty. Jude Sabio have submitted their counter-affidavits for the kidnapping and serious illegal detention charges filed against them.

Based on Trillanes’ counter-affidavit, submitted on Tuesday (October 22), the senator belied the accusations of businesswoman Guillermina Barrido.

Trillanes said Barrido reportedly admitted she was lying based on her statement in April 2017.

“Lumalabas doon na talagang hindi siya kinidnap at unang-una, mayroon siyang cellphone (It showed that she wasn’t really kidnapped and first of all she had a cellphone),” he said.

According to Barrido’s accusations, Trillanes along with the other accused have allegedly kidnapped and detained her in a convent in 2016. She also alleged that she was forced to sign a “ready-made” affidavit against President Rodrigo Duterte.

Meanwhile, Sabio said he saw Barrido twice inside the convent and one time at a mall, proving that she was not forcefully detained.

“Hindi ako pwedeng mag-kidnap tsaka mag-detain ng isang tao para magtestigo laban sa Pangulong Duterte (I cannot kidnap and detain a person to testify against President Duterte),” Sabio said. “Hindi iyan ang trabaho ng isang abogadong tulad ko (That is not the job of a lawyer like me).”

Sabio will also submit the exchange of emails between him and Barrido including videos to support his statement.

Barrido became a witness when a complaint was filed in the International Criminal Court (ICC) against the President, but she reversed her statement saying she was bribed to testify against the President.—AAC (with reports from April Cenedoza)
