MANILA, Philippines — The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) confirmed on Friday (Dec. 20) that the police escorts installed for Judge Jocelyn Solis-Reyes remain even after the promulgation of the Ampatuan massacre case.

NCRPO acting director PBGen. Debold Sinas said police security for the Judge will continue.

He added that they have also installed personnel that will guard the Solis’s residence.

“Ang agreement namin po sa Supreme Court administrator, ang close-in niya tuloy pa rin po until the time the judge feels the situation is back to normal. Yung wala na syang agam-agam,” Sinas said.

Meanwhile, the police general also confirmed that the security inside the Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City has gone back to normal after the promulgation of the case.

Inmates in the Metro Manila District Jail Annex may once again receive visitors.

Even the families of the acquitted accused in the Ampatuan case may also enter the compound to welcome their loved ones to freedom.

“Accordingly, when we call the BJMP, they were processing it, paisa isa ang release nun once the procedure ay ma- comply so hindi na po kami privy nun…ang amin lang kung susunduin sila its ok, mino-monitor lang namin kasi dadaan pa rin sa kampo namin sila,” Sinas added.

The official also added that the whole force of the NCRPO will remain in full alert status until January. —(with the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf

NCRPO to probe link of GCTA mess to BuCor exec’s killing

Aileen Cerrudo   •   February 21, 2020

The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) is looking into the connection of the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) issue with the killing of Bureau of Corrections legal chief Atty. Frederic Anthony Santos.

According to NCRPO Director PMGen. Debold Sinas, the NCRPO already formed a special investigation task group to investigate the said case.

“Iyong tinitingnan nila ay iyong dating kaso ni Atty. Santos, iyong GCTA. Iyon ang latest na case niya at iyon ang cause kung bakit siya na suspend (They are looking into the former case of Atty. Santos which is the GCTA. That was his latest case and it was the cause of his suspension),” he said.

“We are checking sa angle na iyon kung sino ang nag-benefit sa pagkapatay ni Atty. Santos (We are checking that angle, and who benefited from killing Atty. Santos),” Sinas added.

Investigators, however, were not able to retrieve the CCTV footage from the incident. According to Sinas, the CCTV around the area were all broken.

The dash cam of Santos’ vehicle was also unable to capture the shooting.

“The shooters approached on the left side of the driver seat, kaya hindi nahagip ng dash cam (so it was not captured by the dash cam),” Sinas said.

The NCRPO official said there were two suspects in the shooting and they were on board a motorcycle.

Santos was suspended as the BuCor’s legal chief last September 2019 for the Senate hearing on the GCTA issue. He was supposed to resume work this March.—AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)

NCRPO: No more gambling during wakes

Marje Pelayo   •   February 11, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) on Tuesday (February 11) ordered a ban on all forms of gambling in Metro Manila, even during wakes and fiesta celebrations.

“Nag-issue ako ng directive na maski sa patay bawal,” NCRPO director Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas told reporters at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.

The NCRPO Chief added that his directive was already cascaded to local chief executives across the metropolis.

These include any form of numbers game like color games, video karera and ‘sakla’ which gamblers usually set up in wakes.

Sinas added that they received reports that funeral shops allegedly sell or rent out cadavers for fake wakes to set up betting games.

Ang guidance ko pakiusapan muna at pag ayaw ay saka i-raid para hindi nila masabi na wala din kami konsiderasyon (My guidance to the police is to talk to the organizers and if they refuse, they may raid the location so they may not accuse us of being inconsiderate),” Sinas explained.

The NCRPO chief warned to automatically relieve police official in charge once he received reports of gambling in his area of duty.  

“Lantarang saklaan, sabungan, number games, VK pag andyan yan ibig sabihin meron talaga kayong proteksyon (If sakla or card games, derby, number games, video karera is still in practice in your area, that would mean you are a protector),” Sinas warned members of the police.

Such effort by the NCRPO is in support of Philippine National Police Chief DG Archie Gamboa’s ‘no-take policy’ in order to curb illegal gambling in the country.

Other police officials, meanwhile, also expressed similar support to the program.  

“On behalf of the MPD, I would like to pledge to our chief PNP and our regional director to support all their focus program and program trust the “NO TAKE POLICY” and to go against all forms of illegal activities,” assured Manila Police Director PBGen. Bernabe Balba.

“Ang buong SPD under my leadership are fully abide with the full commitment of following the no-take policy of our Chief PNP,” added Southern Police District Acting Director PCol. Emmanuel Peralta.

Sinas, likewise, encouraged the public to capture a video or a photo of any gambling activities in Metro Manila and immediately report the incident to the nearest police authority. MNP (with details from Lea Ylagan)
