PNP holds reenactment of Mayor Halili’s assassination

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Thursday, July 5th, 2018

 

At exactly 8:10 a.m. on Monday, July 2, Tanauan City Mayor Antonio Halili was shot dead in the early Monday flag ceremony at the Tanuan City Hall grounds.

The Special Investigation Task Group Halili conducted on Thursday, July 5 the reenactment of the assassination.

This aims to eliminate speculations and  establish the position of the gunman.

In the reenactment, a mannequin wearing a suit was placed at the spot where  Mayor Halili  was standing along with other individuals during the incident.

After the reenactment, Region 4-A Director Edward Carranza confirmed that the position of the gunman was the sniper hole which they mentioned before.

The crime laboratory said that the killer had an estimated distance of 76.8 meters from the position of the mayor.

The suspect was also elevated 4.1 meters from the ground which enabled him to hit the mayor despite any movement in his place.

Carranza said that it is possible that the gunman is not a sniper who commonly aims for a head shot.

At a distance of 76.8 meters, he said that civilians who are highly-skilled in firearms can also execute a kill shot comparable to a marksman’s .

Currently, there are still three persons of interest who are under investigation.

Meanwhile, at around 9:30 pm in the morning, the crime laboratory has found a bullet in the sniper hole.

It will undergo a ballistic examination to cross-match with the 5.56mm bullet found in the body of the mayor in an autopsy.

Through this, it is possible to identify the owner of the firearm which was used in the killing of Halili. — Sherwin Culubong | UNTV News & Rescue

P6.8-M worth shabu seized in Las Piñas, QC buy-bust operations

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, July 2nd, 2018

 

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has confiscated over P6-million worth of suspected shabu from separate anti-drug operations in Las Piñas City and Quezon City.

First to be arrested were three suspects who were caught selling illegal drugs to PDEA operatives at a shopping mall’s parking area in Las Piñas on Sunday, July 1.

They were identified as Momina Kiaban Kusin, Laila Dali Kamsa, and Christine Bermejo.

Authorities recovered half a kilo of alleged shabu worth P3.4 million from the three women.

The agency said, the suspects have already smuggled shabu twice from their supplier, alias Ladj, in Talitay, Maguindanao.

The supplier is allegedly connected to a Maguindanao mayor. PDEA declined to identify the official while investigation is underway.

Meanwhile, in another mall in Congressional Avenue, Quezon City, PDEA recovered the second bulk of illegal drugs worth P3.4 million.

Authorities arrested siblings, Abdul Socri Daromimbang and Salman Daromimbang who also sold drugs to PDEA operatives.

Abdul Socri said he was just following orders and only agreed to deliver the drugs out of dire need.

“Napagutusan lang po… hirap ng buhay lang po, wala pong makuhang pagkakitaan (I was just told to deliver…Life is hard, I couldn’t find other means of livelihood),” Abdul Socri said.

He also insists that his brother is innocent and knows nothing about selling drugs; Salman only tagged along as he was out of work.

Abdul Socri added that his supplier is a business man from Quiapo, Manila.

PDEA believes that the arrested personalities in the two separate operations are connected to powerful crime syndicates. — Reynante Ponte
