Jonathan Prodigalidad ended up behind bars after attempting to bribe operatives of QCPD Station 1 Drug Enforcement Unit in an attempt to free his brother, Isagani Progalidad, who is facing drug charges.
Based on the initial investigation of the QCPD, Isagani was nabbed previously in a buy-bust operation on a street in Brgy. Sto. Domingo Thursday night (August 23).
Six sachets of suspected shabu and marked money worth P300 were seized from the suspect.
To save his brother from ending in jail Jonathan approached a member of the operative and made an offer.
This alerted the officer and started to subtly record the whole transaction.
“So ginawa ng operatiba natin agad-agad nag-set up ng video na sa ganun makukuha natin ng ebidensya ang panunuhol sa operatiba natin,” said QCPD SDEU chief PSInsp. Kenneth Louie Leano.
Jonathan was recorded negotiating with the police officer and handing out cash worth P25,000.
He insisted that it was Isagani’s wife who ordered him to bribe the police.
“Pinag utusan lang ako sir. Yung asawa ng kapatid ko, hindi ko naman alam sir,” he said.
Jonathan will face charges for violating Article 212 Corruption of Public Official of the Revised Penal Code. — Reynante Ponte
The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has lauded the Philippine National Police (PNP) and local government units (LGUs) for the “safest Southeast Asian (SEA) Games” in history.
DILG Secretary Eduardo Año said there were no serious or major untoward incidents reported that marred the SEA Games.
“Naipakita natin ang ‘Filipino hospitality’ at ang bayanihan ng pulisya, nasyunal at lokal na mga pamahalaan, private sector at media (We have shown the ‘Filipino hospitality’ and the cooperation of the national police and the local government, private sector and media). This will go down in history as the best and safest ever,” he said.
There were 27,440 police officers deployed to site task groups during the whole duration of the SEA Games.
In Metro Manila alone, there were 18,105 officers securing the competitions; 6,554 in Central Luzon; 1,865 in Southern Luzon; and 916 in La Union.
“We will not rest until all the foreign athletes, coaches and staff have left the country. We are committed 100% to their safety and well-being. Congrats to the PNP for a job well done!,” Año addded.—AAC

“This mission ends only until after the last foreign delegate has left the country,” Gamboa said.—AAC
MANILA, Philippines— The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) will deploy 50 police officers in civilian clothes to ensure security during the promulgation of the Maguindanao Massacre case on December 19, 2019.
This is apart from the more than the 200 Special Action Force (SAF) troopers and the Civil Disturbance Management Unit that have been initially tasked by the NCRPO to guard the security in the Metropolis.
According to NCRPO acting director PBGen. Debold Sinas, they will implement a lockdown inside the Camp Bagong Diwa-Taguig so that no untoward incident will slip through them during the promulgation.
“They already approved na mag lock down kami ibig sabihin yung ibang jail na nandoon di ba 6 jails ang nandoon pero lahat sila hindi na mag aaccept ng bisita on the 18th and the 19th,” Sinas said.
He added that they will not let any protest rallies be staged inside and outside the camp as this will stall traffic flow.
Sinas also assured that the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) will strictly guard the security of Judge Jocelyn Solis-Reyes, as well as, the prosecutors.
“Ngayon pa lang sini secure na natin ang judge. After the promulgation continue pa rin yung security natin sa kanya until such time na she will feel normal. Including yung prosecutor,” he added.
To date, authorities have yet to receive any threat against Reyes, the prosecutors, and even in the venue where the promulgation will take place. — (from the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
