Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido was tasked to investigate against cops suspected to have been protecting the Parojinog clan in Ozamiz City.
This is in connection with President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to hold liable all policemen who have been covering up the illegal activities of the Parojinog clan.
PNP- Public Information Office (PIO) PCSupt. Dionardo carlos said, “We will back track on how many decades how many years has this group been going. They are the ones conducting their activities there so we will look into it who are possibly involved.”
The said cops serve as hitmen of the Parojinogs to execute the killing of civilians. The PNP also confirmed that the said cops are members of the alleged Parojinog Death Squad.
“They are still out there. We will check [policemen]: ‘Were you assigned [in Ozamiz] when the Parojinogs were still in power? What could have been your possible participation?’ We will back track [investigation]. Now, if there’s an intelligence report, that report will be included kung sino itong mga (to identify who were the) personnel involved in the past” said Carlos.
Due to insistent demand from Ozamiz City residents, PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa has decided not to send Espenido to other areas of assignment, and will stay instead in Ozamiz City.
Dela Rosa explained in a statement that residents of Ozamiz City are growing afraid of the possible retaliation from the Parojinogs, and the PNP chief believes it is better for Espenido to stay.
Dela Rosa added, they already have leads about the suspected cops linked to the Parojinogs. The PNP is now conducting thorough investigation to confirm their involvement with the clan. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue
