MANILA CITY, Philippines — Seven policemen involved in kidnapping and extortion of a civilian surrendered to the Philippine National Police – Counter-Intelligence Task Force (PNP-CITF).
On August 11, police kidnapped a civilian from Barangay Longos in Malabon City.
The suspects asked for P100,000 to the victim’s parents in exchange for his freedom.
The victim’s parents immediately asked the help of the CITF.
A joint operation was conducted by the NPD and CITF but the suspects immediately found out.
The next day, the suspects surrendered and were identified as members of the Navotas PNP.
They are namely, PO1 Emmanuel Benedict Alojacin, PO1 Mark Ryan Mones, PO2 Jonnel Barocaboc, PO3 Kenneth Loria, PO1 Christian Bondoc, PO1 Jack Rennert Etcubañas and PO2 Jessrald Pacinio.
“However, mayroong kaming other investigations. Kung mapatunayan namin na naging neglectful siya, ang immediate supervisor kasi sila ay assigned sa intelligence. Kung ang intelligence officer na may hawak sa kanila is the direct responsible officer,” CITF director PSSupt. Jose Chiquito Malayo said.
(However, we have other investigations. If we can prove the negligence of the immediate supervisor because the suspects are assigned in intelligence. If the intelligence officer handling them is the direct responsible officer, then he will be sacked accordingly.)
CITF Director PSSupt. Jose Chiquito Malayo said it proves the effectiveness of their campaign against anomalous police.
“Naging effective ang supporting ng ating mga civilians dahil tuwing may insidente naka-abot agad sa atin at na-aksyunan, malamang noong araw marami talaga ito kaya lang hindi agad na-aksyunan so it was silent,” PSSupt. Malayo added.
(The support of our civilians are effective because every incident, we are immediately informed and we take action, of course before there are many incidents with no immediate action, so it was silent.)
Meanwhile, the seven policemen will be charged with kidnapping and physical injury. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue
