Killing of Cainta deputy police chief will be resolved soon —  PNP CIDG

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, February 19th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — A member of the “Highway Boys” who was allegedly involved in the killing of Cainta Deputy Chief of Police PSInsp. Jimmy Senosin has voluntarily surrendered to the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) Anti Transnational Crime Unit last Friday afternoon.

The suspect, Hermogenes Lachica alias Ekis said that he knows nothing about the killing.

He claimed he was just named by Lakas Bisig floodway chief alias Bulao.

“Wala po akong kasalanan,” said the suspect.

(I didn’t do anything wrong.)

Lachica, however, admitted that he knows Ruben Paglinawan Gomez, alias “Ruben Tae,” who was responsible for the series of robbery hold up in Rizal.

“Pulis po ‘yan ng Cainta. ‘Yan po ang nagdidiin sa akin. Nabibigyan po kasi namin yan ng pera dati sa Tupada at lahat sa kanya napupunta,” said Lachica.

(He is a policeman in Cainta. He’s the one trying to pin me down. We used to give him money at Tupada, and everything goes to him.)

PNP-CIDG chief PDir. Roel Obusan said they will resolve the case of Senosin soon.

“Yung sinasabi niya ngayon at yung nakuha ng mga dating imbestigador papunta na tayo sa mas magandang ikaka-solve ng pagkamatay ni SInsp. Jimmy Senosin,” said Obusan.

(The statement of Lachica and the result of the investigation of Cainta police, will lead to solving the case soon.)

Obusan also said that one of the members of “Highway Boys” also sent a surrender feeler.

“Meron pang isa na gustong sumuko. We can follow it up,” said the PNP- CIDG chief.

(There is another member who sent a surrender feeler. We can follow it up.)

Last week, Senosin was allegedly killed by Ekis and Tae in an encounter.

Senosin’s group purportedly responded to a call reporting armed men being cited in the area. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Friday, November 10th, 2017


MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa led the 116th Police Service Anniversary in Zamboanga City on Thursday.

In his speech, PNP chief Dela Rosa gave an order to the policemen about their new mission to go after riding in tandem criminals.

 “Let’s focus on riding-in-tandem criminals. We are no longer in the drugs war. Let’s find these riding-in-tandem criminals and finish them off. These fools are the ones destroying us,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dela Rosa refused to comment on the status of the anti-drug campaign of the government under the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

During the event, the PNP proudly announced that beginning next year, cops will receive salary raise and new equipment like police patrol vehicles.

Dela Rosa said that the conduct of internal cleansing among the ranks of the police will remain so the public’s trust to the PNP will return.

“Let us continue to prove to our countrymen that the PNP is composed of more good men and women than scalawags. Let’s not allow the total destruction of the name of the organization just because of the corruption of some cops,” said the chief.

Also, during the ceremony, the PNP gave recognition to several deserving cops, police units, non-uniformed personnel and it also gave special awards to the representatives of the Police Regional Office 9. — Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue
