    by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Monday, August 14th, 2017

    ILOCOS, Philippines —  A seaman was killed after he was shot inside his home in Brgy. Duplas San Juan, La Union, around 8:00 p.m. last Saturday night.

    The authorities identified the victim as Edgar Ursua Nana, 33 years old.

    According to the initial reports of San Juan police, five armed men in bonnets entered the home of the victim.

    They took more than $2,000 or around P100,000 cash and 2 cellphones and then shot the victim.

    Meanwhile, also killed in gunshot inside their home in Conception, Tarlac are father and son Jaime Baquing and Chody Baquing last Saturday morning.

    The victims’ family and some witnesses said they heard the victims and 3 suspects fighting about sand before the shooting happened.

    The suspects immediately escaped in a delivery van of an online shop but were blocked by police.

    “Nakita po itong van dito sa may subdivision sa may Barangay Alfonso kung saan pinlug daw ito ng ating tropa at paghintong-paghinto po ng sasakyan agad bumaba po ang isang tao at pinaputukan ang ating tropa kaya napilitan po tayong magkaroon ng putukan at lumaban,” said Chief of Police Concepcion PSupt. Miguel Guzman.

    (I saw the van here in a subdivision in Barangay Alfonso where it was plugged by our troops and when the van stopped a man immediately stepped out and fired at our troops so we were forced to retaliate and fire back.)

    One suspect died and another was arrested but the third suspect escaped. – UNTV News & Rescue

    Parojinog camp to sue CIDG over delayed inquest proceedings

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — The 36-hour validity of arrest of Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog and Reynaldo Parojinog Jr. already lapsed on Monday and the siblings should have been released from detention.

    The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), however, admitted they encountered a problem in transporting the Parajinog siblings, thereby causing the delay.

    Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, the lead counsel of the Parojinog family, said they will file a case against the CIDG for violating Article 125 of the Revised Penal Code.

    “Kinokonsidera po namin ng seryoso ang paghahain ng reklamo para sa paglabag ng Artikulo 125 ng Revised Penal Code dahil lumampas po ng 36 hours yung pagka ditene ng aming mga kliente na wala pong inquest at walang file ng charges,” he said. (We are seriously considering filing a complaint for the violation of Article 125 of the Revised Penal Code for the continued detention of our client beyond 36 hours despite the absence of inquest and charges.)

    The inquest proceedings only pushed through in the afternoon

    The senior state prosecutor from the Department of Justice (DOJ) led the proceedings

    The CIDG filed a complaint against the two Parojinogs for illegal possession of firearms; illegal possession of illegal drugs and illegal possession of explosives

    The complaint was already submitted for resolution and it’s up to the DOJ to determine if there is probable cause to indict the siblings.

    “After the inquest there will be a resolution from the panel whether or not there is a probable cause, if there’s a probable cause an information will be filed in the court and the court will issue a commitment order because the respondents are already under custody so there maybe no cause to issue a warrant of arrest,”
    Atty. Topacio said.

    He added that his clients do not want to be detained in Ozamiz in fear of their lives.

    In the meantime, the Parojinog siblings will stay at the PNP custodial center until a court decides where they will be detained

    After the DOJ comes up with a resolution on the complaint, Atty. Topacio will file a motion for the court to allow the siblings to attend the burial of their father and mother in Ozamiz. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News and Rescue

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, July 10th, 2017

     

    LA UNION, Philippines — a minor who allegedly escaped from a youth rehabilitation center was found dead in San Fernando, La Union.

    Lying face down, mouth covered and hands bound with masking tape and body riddled with several gunshot wounds.

    This was how residents found the lifeless body of a minor in the mountainous part of Barangay Calabugao, Fernando, La Union at around 7:00 am on Sunday.

    The victim was identified as Johnver Valdez, a resident of Barangay Sibuan-Otong, San Fernando.

    Residents said they heard five gunshots.

    Authorities recovered from the crime scene five empty bullet shells of a .45 caliber pistol, a cigarette butt, a transparent heat-sealed plastic sachet containing suspected marijuana, two transparent heat-sealed plastic sachets of suspected shabu and some aluminum foil.

    San Fernando City Police said the victim was recently apprehended in an anti-drug operation.

    Since he was a minor, he was brought to a rehabilitation center in Bauang, La Union where he apparently escaped.

    Authorities are investigating into the motive and the persons behind the killing. — Toto Fabros | UNTV News & Rescue
