    Resorts World Manila gunman identified

    by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Monday, June 5th, 2017

    Philippine National Police identified the suspect in Resorts World Manila attack.

    Philippine National Police identified Jessie Carlos, the lone gunman in the Resorts World Manila attack.

    MANILA –  Jessie Carlos, 42 years old, quiet and a loner according to his neighbors. He was a resident of Sta. Cruz, Manila, and had a wife and three children.

    He was a former tax specialist at the Department of Finance, but was removed from his job due to a complaint filed against him at the Office of the Ombudsman concerning an incorrect declaration of Statement of Assets and Liabilities (SALN).

    He was a gambling addict who could not pay his P4-million debt and is separated from his wife.

    In April, his addiction prompted his is relatives to ask the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) to ban him from entering any casinos.

    These are the reasons cited by the police in relation to Carlos’ attack at Resorts World Manila, Friday midnight.

    Tracking the taxi he took, the cops found Carlos’ family.

    The relatives confirmed the identity of the suspect through the images and CCTV footage.

    Aside from this, his parents identified Carlos’ corpse through the autopsy results.

    The suspect’s parents asked for forgiveness to the victims of the attack especially those who died in the incident.

    “Humihingi po kami ng patawad, sa nagawa po ng anak ko, hindi po namin gusto ang nangyari. We’re really sorry,” Fernando Carlos, the suspect’s father said. (We asked for forgiveness, to what my son did. We didn’t want this to happen.We’re really sorry.)

    Carlos’ mother calls on parents to stop their children from getting involved in bad vices.

    “Kung maaari po sana, awatin po ninyo ang anak ninyo.  Kami po namimighati rin po, di rin po namin matanggap na ang anak po namin, nalulong ng husto hangga’t umabot sa ganitong pangyayari,” Teodora Carlos, the suspect’s mother said. (If you can, stop your child. We’re really full of sorrow. We could not accept that our son was totally addicted and it has led to this incident.)

    The police considers the case closed after the suspect has been identified. It has also put a stop to speculations that the incident was a terror attack.

    “I think this already dispels all the notions, all the speculations on terrorism,” NCRPO Police Director Oscar Albayalde said. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue

    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

    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

    PNP to retake anti-illegal drug ops if problems on illegal drugs worsens

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Monday, October 16th, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) said it does not want all its efforts in the war on drugs to be put to waste, especially the actions it enforced to address the proliferation of the selling and use of shabu in the streets.

    The PNP claims to have given huge contributions to prevent the spread of illegal drugs in the country.

    This is why PNP chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa noted that if more cops get involved in illegal drug trade activities, and the number of crime increases, he will personally ask the president to allow the police to return to the drug war.

    “If the situation worsens, like when peddling of shabu returns to the streets, and the transactions for such become more open, and no one is intervening anymore, I will go to the president and ask him to allow us to return to the scene. Let’s not neglect the country, and allow the Philippines to become pitiful,” said Dela Rosa.

    However, the PNP chief noted that that the loss of lives will remain inevitable if cops are allowed again to conduct illegal drugs operations.

    The police general emphasized this would only happen when the lives of his men are put at risk during such anti-drug raids.

    “Don’t ask change from us. Ask that from the drug personalities. If you don’t want the war on drugs to be violent, to be bloody, then tell them to stop selling drugs. Stop fighting back against the police,” said the PNP chief.

    Dela Rosa, meanwhile, clarified that the PNP is confident of the ability of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) to address the illegal drug trade.

    This is why the PNP chief said that his men are on standby in case PDEA calls for help.

    “If they ask for support, we will give them. If not, then we are hands-off,” said Dela Rosa. — Grace Casin | UNTV News & Rescue
