admin   •   January 28, 2017   •   3040

The United Korean Community Association of the Philippines together with the PNP-AIDG, once again offered flowers and prayers at the area in Camp Crame where the Korean businessman was allegedly killed.

An information drive will be conducted by the Philippine National Police Anti-Illegal Drugs Group (PNP-AIDG) in every Korean community across the country to prevent them from being abused by corrupt policemen like what happened to slain Korean businessman, Jee Ick Joo.

AIDG Dir. PS/Supt. Albert Ferro said, they want to give sufficient awareness to the 90,000 Korean nationals about the various modus operandi employed by rogue policemen.

“We will be giving them tips like for instance if somebody gave them warrant of arrest and search warrant it should be properly verified at the nearest police station,” said Ferro.

Meanwhile, militant groups held a protest outside of Camp Crame to condemn the abuses of anti-drug campaign committed by members of the PNP.

“Ang aming panawagan sa Pangulo, dapat hindi na sya magbigay ng blanket endorsement ng war on drugs at justification sa mga pagpatay kasi humahantong ngayon sa akala ng mga pulis na okay na gumawa kami ng krimen at walang mananagot,” said BAYAN secretary general, Renato Reyes.

(Our appeal to the President, he should not give blanket endorsement for the war on drugs and justification in the killings because it gives policemen the impression that it’s okay to commit crime because they will not be held accountable.)

Reyes also said that the Project Tokhang of PNP should be stopped because it is being used as a justification to kill a suspected drug personality. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News and Rescue

A doctor has been kidnapped by armed men from his clinic in Jolo, Sulu on Tuesday (February 5).

Authorities are still investigating which group abducted Dr. Daniel Moreno who is a public servant treating local residents in Jolo, Sulu.

Based on the investigation of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, four men in camouflage entered Moreno’s clinic in Barangay Walled City past 7:00 p.m. The men forced the doctor to board a red Tamaraw FX.

“Nakasuot ito ng military at PNP uniforms kung kaya’t siguro mas napadali iyong kanilang execution. Tayo po ay naniniwala na matagal na nilang sinu-surveillance at minamatyagan itong doctor na ito, (They were wearing military and PNP uniforms so the execution was easier for them. We believe they have long been monitoring this doctor),” according to Western Mindanao Command Spokesperson Major Arvin John Encinas.

Authorities are currently determining the motive of the kidnapping and if the Abu Sayyaf Group is involved in the said incident.—AAC (with reports from Val Villaflor)

MANILA, Philippines – The implementation of Oplan Tokhang will continue as part of the anti-illegal drugs campaign of the government.

According to PNP-OIC PLtGen. Archie Gamboa, this is part of the agreement they reached with Vice President Leni Robredo during their meeting on Thursday (Nov. 14).

The Vice President has earlier said that she wants to scrap the Oplan Tokhang which was also referred to as Oplan Tokbang by critics due to the reported high number of deaths of drug suspects for allegedly resisting arrest.

“We were able to convince her na meron lang probably re-packaging or re-tooling of how it is going to be presented but she is convinced that indeed the Philippine anti-drug strategy is already a strategy that can be adopted outright,” Gamboa said.

“She’s also convinced na yung tokhang ay hindi naman. Bisaya kasi kami, ‘tokhang’ came from a Visayan word. Kung titingnan mo yun, there’s no killing in tokhang,” he added.  (with details from Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
