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

Aileen Cerrudo   •   November 8, 2021

MANILA, Philippines—Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Guillermo Eleazar has ordered the initiation of summary dismissal proceedings against a policeman charged with kidnapping in Manila.

In a statement, the PNP said Eleazar directed the Internal Affairs Service to file a criminal complaint against Patrolman Wilfredo Mindanao.

“Apart from the filing of criminal complaints of serious illegal detention and usurpation of authority in the Manila Prosecutor’s Office against the suspects, I have instructed the IAS to initiate summary dismissal proceedings against Mindanao,” Eleazar said.

Mindanao, along with his alleged cohort, Romeo Aday, were arrested after allegedly kidnapping a man whom they claimed to have caught in possession of illegal drugs. Aday, who is reportedly a driver, purportedly introduced himself as an agent of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and  claimed that the victim was under arrest for possession of illegal drugs.

The two suspects were arrested by local authorities after receiving a complaint from a vendor who witnessed the supposed abduction.

Eleazar also said that the Manila Police District (MPD) is conducting a deeper probe into the incident.

“We cannot allow these few rogues in the service to destroy the public’s confidence on the PNP now that we have made strides in regaining our kababayan’s trust. I am warning those policemen who will continue to undermine our mandate and erode the institution, you will be caught and made to face the consequences of your wrongful actions,” the PNP chief said.

MANILA, Philippines — The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) arrested alleged members of a Chinese kidnapping group in Parañaque, Thursday evening (August 26).

According to the CIDG, the arrest was made after 29-year-old Chinese national Cao Qui and 53-year-old Arnulfo Firmanes filed a report on Cao Qui’s kidnapping on August 25.

Based on their report, a group of Chinese nationals on Wednesday afternoon suddenly appeared and handcuffed Cao Qui. The group took the car he rented and brought him to Multinational Village, Paranaque City.

Thereafter, they demanded a sum of money in exchange for Cao Qui’s freedom.

However, Cao Qui failed to comply with their demand. After 24 hours, he was released on the condition that the rented car will remain in the Chinese group’s possession until he produces the money.

The CIDG immediately responded to the complaint and to the area where Cao Qui was reportedly kidnapped. Upon arrival at the location, the victim, without any doubts identified the rented car.

The CIDG operatives flagged down the vehicle and arrested the individuals onboard.

Authorities also seized firearms and ammunition, as well as, handcuffs and sachets of suspected illegal drugs in the house where the victim was detained.

Cases for violations of RA 10883 (Carnapping), Art 267 of the RPC (Kidnapping and Serious Illegal Detention), Section 11 and 12 of RA 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act) and Art. 5, Section 28 of RA 10591 (Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act) were filed against the group. AAC

Marje Pelayo   •   August 3, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Mayor Toby Tiangco of Navotas City announced placing Barangays Tanza 1 and 2 under lockdown due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 infection in the said areas.

In his Facebook post, the city mayor noted an increase in infection rate after 25 percent who underwent the latest mass testing turned out positive for COVID-19.

“Bagaman may ECQ na sa August 6, kinailangan nating maglockdown para mahinto ang mabilis na hawaan,” Tiangco said.

The Mayor reminds all residents of concerned barangays to remain indoors and submit to swab testing.

“Sinumang magpositibo ay dadalhin agad sa community isolation facility. Bibigyan din ng relief packs ang mga pamilyang apektado,” he said.

Meanwhile, essential workers in areas under lockdown will be allowed to go out until August 5 provided that they have not been in close contact with a positive case.

They will be required to present a valid company ID, certificate of employment, or a business or permit from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

Tiangco stressed that once the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) takes effect on August 6, only those considered as Authorized Persons Outside Residence (APOR)  by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) will be allowed.

While under lockdown and ECQ, residents in Barangay Tanza 1 will be allowed access to the market during Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays while residents of Barangay Tanza 2 are allowed every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

On August 6, ECQ policies will be imposed, Tiangco said.

“Hindi po natin gusto ang lockdown; mahirap ito para sa ating lahat. Ngunit kailangan po ito para sa ikabubuti ng bawat isa,” he added. “Hinihingi po namin ang iyong lubos na suporta at kooperasyon. Pakikiisa ang tatapos sa pandemya.”
