BATANGAS, Philippines — More 200 drug surrenderers who graduated from the SIPAG program of the Philippine National Police (PNP) have marched in Tanauan, Batangas.

At least 204 individuals from the three barangays of Tanauan City, Batangas who were former drug dependents are now looking forward to a new life.

They are among the first batch of surrenderers who have completed the three-month rehabilitation and reformation program in the province.

The moral recovery and spiritual renewal, in particular, have been the focus of the program for their continuous reformation.

Alongside this, they were also given a certificate of clearance so that they can be removed from the drug list of the PNP.

TESDA is also willing to provide them training so that they can find jobs and be useful citizens of the community. — UNTV News & Rescue

Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director PSSupt. Guillermo Eleazar

MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director PSSupt. Guillermo Eleazar belied allegations in a viral video that showed children being kidnapped in Quezon City and their internal organs being taken.

The said video is now circulating on social media.

Eleazar said that the police cannot consider it as valid information since it has not received any reports about it.

The police official advised netizens to stop sharing such videos on social media since it only causes fear and panic among the public.

“Lahat ng mga report na yun in so far are we concerned are fake news. Ang iba kasi sabi, ‘Concerned kami kaya gusto namin i-share.’ Ang shini-share nila ay takot. Hindi yung information, which is wrong,” Eleazar said.

(All those reports, in so far are we concerned, are fake news. Others are saying they are just concerned that’s why they are sharing it. But what they are sharing is fear, not the information. This is wrong.)  — UNTV News & Rescue

PNP Health Service acting director PSSupt. Ma. Antonietta Langcauon answers question from the media regarding the death of a police allegedly vaccinated with Dengvaxia

MANILA, Philippines —According to the Philippine National Police (PNP), the cop who reportedly died of Dengvaxia did not receive the controversial dengue vaccine.

PNP Health Service acting director PSSupt. Ma. Antonietta Langcauon said that SP02 Vicente Arugay of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Station 6 was not on the list of Dengvaxia vaccinees.

“We have the lists in Camp Karingal. His name is not there,” said the police officer.

She noted that Arugay was already 50 years old. He is not included in the 9 to 45 years old required age to receive Dengvaxia vaccine.

The doctors of the PNP  said the cause of Arugay’s death was leptospirosis based on the symptoms he showed which include fever, a decrease in sodium and jaundice, which was why he could not talk.

He also suffered bleeding.

“Di tayo pwede mga imbento o gumawa ng istorya to cover up. Wala po kami mapapala dyan,” said the PNP chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa.

(We’re not allowed to invent or create a story to cover up. We will not benefit from it.)

Of the 1,548 individuals injected with Dengvaxia inside Camp Crame, none are staying at the PNP General Hospital since March 16.

A utility worker of the PNP GH reportedly died due to Dengvaxia vaccine but the PNP Health Service said the worker died of pneumonia. — Leslie Longboen | UNTV News and Rescue

CIDG to submit new evidence vs. Espinosa, et al.

FILE IMAGE: Kerwin Espinosa on a Senate hearing

MANILA, Philippines —  Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre has announced that the decision to dismiss the drug charges against big time drug lords Kerwin Espinosa, Peter Lim and others is void.

For this reason, the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) is set to submit additional evidence against the said drug personalities.

CIDG legal division chief PSupt. Joseph Orsos said that although they believe they have a strong case, they will still submit the transcript of the statement of Espinosa during a Senate inquiry where he admitted being a drug dealer and his extrajudicial confession to the PNP-Anti-Illegal Drugs Group (AIDG).

“As far as we are concerned, we have already shown that what is stated there is uncontested,” said Orsos.

The extrajudicial confession of Kerwin to the AIDG states that he was distributing illegal drugs while in detention through his men.

He also said he was introduced to other drug lords like Peter Co, Tony Co, and Peter Lim while in detention.

In line with this, the CIDG is confident that the police unit can win against the said drug lords.

“If you will read the resolution, if you scrutinize it, it’s really reversible,” said the legal chief.

However, Orsos said the fiscal have to explain why they have a contradictory decision regarding the case against Sen. De Lima. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
