    PNP finalizes report to clarify issues of alleged extrajudicial killings in the country

    MANILA, Philippines — For the last time, the Philippine National Police (PNP) sought to clarify anew the issue of the alleged extrajudicial killings in the country.

    To do this, the PNP is completing now a report that would clarify the reasons behind the deaths of more than 10,000 drug suspects in various parts of the country, which critics claim, are state-sponsored killings.

    The Commission on Human Rights (CHR) has initially sought to conduct a similar probe, but President Rodrigo Duterte himself prohibited the plan.

    “How do we now know ngayon kung ano yung sinasabi nilang EJK? Kasi ang sa atin po ay ano yung krimen na naganap, pag may krimen na naganap sino ang perpetrator? State or non state? Ngayon isa pa, iniimbistigahan ba yan o hindi?”  said PNP PIO chief PCSupt. Dionardo Carlos.

    (How do we  know now what this EJK is that they are talking about? Because for us, it’s about the crime committed, and if it was committed, who was the perpetrator?State or non-state? Another one is, are these being investigated or not)

    According to the PNP, the thousands of deaths cannot be considered as extrajudicial killings or EJK since the cases are still under investigation.

    If a cop is proven involved in a killing, the PNP explained that it will fall under the category of murder and not EJK.

    For now, authorities have already resolved more than 6,000 cases of deaths, meaning these are already in courts, and the suspects are now facing charges.

    Through the said report, the public can know what happened behind the anti-illegal drugs operations of the PNP.

    “What we do is analyze what is happening and report, give out strategies give out this report to the public. We see no plot to cover up,” said the police.

    Meanwhile, the PNP will turn over death cases involving illegal drugs to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA). — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

    PNP-AKG readies new witnesses in Jee Ick Joo kidnap-slay case

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

    Jee Ick Jook

     

    MANILA, Philippines – Some policemen who were part of the group behind the kidnapping of Jee Ick Joo have expressed willingness to testify in the killing of the Korean national.

    According to PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group (AKG) Director Glenn Dumlao, many should have been punished for the crime, but many of the suspects were able to go scot-free.

    Among them, Dumlao said, are the NBI operatives who are believed to have been involved in the crime.

    “Ginagawan namin ng paraan na mahagip pa yung iba eh kasi tatawa tawa lang yung iba dyan eh kung ano partisipasyon ng mga pnp suspects eh ganun din naman sila (We are trying to capture the others because some of them are sniggering, when in fact, whatever the PNP suspects’ participation was, they’re guilty of the same), he said.

    According to Dumlao, he was able to talk to the wife of Jee Ick Jook. He said the Korean’s wife is dismayed over the slow pace of the case.

    The PNP admitted not having strong evidence yet but noted their new witness could provide a big help in the case.

    The AKG previously filed charges against some policemen and NBI operatives, but the cases were dismissed due to lack of evidence.

    “It is now on our part on how we can gather evidence to give justice. Because I think those who are detained are now thinking, why only them?” PS/Supt. Glenn Dumlao said.

    Currently, the motion to post bail by SPO3 Ricky Sta. Isabel and P/Supt Rafael Dumlao are still being heard in court. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue
