MANILA, Philippines – Former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief PGen Oscar Albayalde appealed to the Department of Justice to dismiss the complaints filed against him on the alleged anomalous operation of the so-called ninja cops in Mexico, Pampanga in 2013.
Albayalde said the PNP-Criminal Investigation and Detention Group (CIDG) failed to present solid evidence against him in filing the charges, which stemmed from the allegation that the drugs seized in the drug raid in Pampanga with a street value of P648-million were recycled by the ninja cops.
The former police chief made the appeal during the DOJ’s investigation on the activities of the said ninja cops, in which he is facing a violation of the Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Acts of 2002 for the alleged wrongful storage of the confiscated illegal drugs.
In his counter-affidavit, Albayalde insisted that the accusation against him by the CIDG has no basis and that the DOJ has no jurisdiction to reopen the case.
Albayalde is also facing corruption charges for allegedly impeding the dismissal order against the said ninja cops.
The PNP-CIDG, on the other hand, is confident that the DOJ will indict Albayalde and the 13 ninja cops.
“Sa tingin ko mga 70 to 80 percent, I believe so. He is liable and probable cause lang naman hinahanap natin ditto,” said Police Lt. Col Joseph Orsos, Chief of the PNP CIDG Legal Division.
The DOJ will resume its investigation on Monday (November 11). (from the report of Mai Bermudez) /mbmf
Emmanuel Judavar, a witness in the Ako Bicol Partylist Representative Rodel Batocabe slay case has expressed apprehensions over his security now that former Daraga Mayor Carlwyn Baldo has been released on bail.
In an exclusive interview with UNTV News and Rescue, Judavar revealed that he has not yet received in full the supposed reward money allocated to the witnesses in the case.
Judavar said that among those who might threaten his life are the police officers who benefited from the reward money.
“Sa PNP, ang mag iisip talaga sa akin ng masama yung nakinabang sa pera na yan kung sino ka man, nakinabang ka tapos ngayon ay nakalkal yan, masama ang loob mo pwede talaga na pag isipan ako ng masama dahil kung nagastos mo na yan namomoblema ka kung saan ka kukuha ng pera na yan,” Judavar said.
He claims that out of the promised P35-M reward money, only P6-M was given to him.
The first P4-M was given to him on January 19, 2019, and the next P2-M on January 26 — both through PLtCol. Narciso Langcauon of the Intelligence Office.
“Wala pong proseso, nagpicture picture lang kami sa cellphone, kasi ang gusto ko po ay may media para malaman ng tao kung magkano talaga ang napupunta sa akin,” he added.
Judavar said that the Philippine National Police (PNP) informed him that the suspects in the case, such as, Danilo Muella, Christopher Naval, Jerwin Babor, and Emmanuel Rosello were also given P1-million each for the information they shared to the authorities.
He claimed that only Muella admitted receiving the said reward.
Judavar added that the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) reiterated to him that they still have two witnesses aside from him who also received the reward.
Judavar, however, claimed that the information that the PNP received that led to the arrest of the suspects all came from him.
“Kaya sabi ko nga, ‘Ilabas niyo yan, Sir, kung sino yung witness niyo’,” he added.
Judavar further said that he is ready to face any investigation to shed light on the alleged missing reward money.
He claims sending a letter to PGen Oscar Albayalde regarding his issue on the reward money but the police chief has not responded to him as yet and that it was the CIDG legal officer Atty Joseph Orsos who wrote to him and informed him that he is not the sole recipient of the reward money.
With this, Judavar made an appeal to the police chief.
“Alam ko na, Sir, kung sino yung mga tao na humawak ng pera. Kung pinakinabangan nila yung binigay mong pera. Kayo po bahala na pagsabihan ang mga tao mo kasi command reponsibility mo yan, Sir. Kasi ikaw mismo ang nagsabi sa media na sa akin ibibigay ang reward money na yan. Di mo yan maitatago,” he said. (from the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
