PNP Criminal Investigation And Detection Group (CIDG) Director Police Director Roel Obusan
MANILA — A special task force has been formed to investigate the slaying of a CIDG Official.
“We will really investigate what really transpired because everybody deserves justice,” PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group director PDir. Roel Obusan said.
This was the promise Obusan made to the family and kin of slain Police Chief Inspector Rommel Macatlang.
The 51-year-old Macatlang was shot near a gas station in Pasig City on Wednesday.
A CCTV footage shows a man on a motorcycle tailing Macatlang’s white Mitsubishi Adventure upon exiting Camp Crame.
Following the incident, the PNP created a special task force to investigate the case.
PNP-CIDG believes the slaying is work related. Macatlang was the chief of the CIDG of the Eastern Police District and was among those who conduct Anti-Drug Operations.
“Somehow baka merong nagkaron ng personal grudge o vendetta kaya its almost ganun naman lagi ang cycle ng buhay ng pulis… hindi mo dapat tanggalin ang possibility na may gaganti sa’yo (Somehow, perhaps someone is holding a personal grudge or vendetta against him. That’s the cycle of the life of a policeman. You must not erase the possibility of retaliation) ,” PDIR. Obusan said.
Macatlang’s remains lie in state at Camp Crame. The rest of his family are due to arrive from the United States.
“Hindi niya deserve yung nangyari sa kanya. Despite his commitment sa trabaho nya mamatay sya sa ganung paraan lang (He did not deserve what happened to him. Despite his commitment to his job, he had to die that way), ” one of his relatives said. — Grace Casin | UNTV News & Rescue
