admin   •   January 19, 2017   •   4911

There is no excuse for PSupt. Raphael Dumlao, the team leader of SPO3 Ricky Sta. Isabel, to evade an ongoing investigation and possible charges, although he is saying that he was in China on October 18, the day Korean businessman Jee Ick Joo was kidnapped in Angeles, Pampanga.

This was according to Anti-Illegal Drugs Group (AIDG) director PSSupt. Albert Ferro, as he further noted that it was Dumlao himself who recommended Sta. Isabel to the AIDG.

Col. Ferro added that it was Dumlao who ordered Sta. Isabel to search for a safe house in Angeles City for AIDG personnel during times of operations.

He also noted the need to also investigate reports that it was also Dumlao who ordered two other operatives of AIDG to help sta. Isabel in his operation in Angeles City.

Because of this, Ferro said that Dumlao is in a restrictive custody for the said investigation.

“So that he will be available anytime of the day when we need to talk to him. This is because we also need to determine the administrative lapses or negligence that might have happened,” explained Ferro.

He also confirmed that SPO4 Roy Villegas and PO2 Christopher Baldomino have already submitted their affidavit to the Anti-Kidnapping Group (AKG). They were also implicated in the kidnapping.

“We do not condone any wrong doing of our personnel and if we have substantial and enough evidence, we will pursue to the service of justice for those involved,” said Ferro.

In line with this, the head of the AIDG assured the AKG and NBI of its full cooperation to shed light and resolve the case of the kidnapping and killing of Korean businessman Jee Ick Joo.

Based on initial results of the investigation, Ferro said it is clear that Sta. Isabel deceived and used AIDG in his modus operandi. — Joan Nano | UNTV News and Rescue

Robie de Guzman   •   November 11, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Outgoing Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Guillermo Eleazar on Thursday directed police personnel to begin nighttime patrols after the government approved the conduct of street caroling this holiday season.

In a statement, Eleazar said the patrols should be conducted to ensure the security and safety of carolers.

“Inatasan ko ang ating kapulisan na mag-umpisang magsagawa ng mga patrolya tuwing gabi para sa seguridad ng mga nangangaroling at para na rin siguraduhing sumusunod sila sa health protocols,” he said.

Eleazar also urged the public to continue observing health protocols and to not be complacent amid declining COVID-19 cases in the country.

“Kahit pa bumababa ang kaso ng COVID-19, hindi ito dahilan upang maging kampante at magpabaya sa pagsunod sa minimum public health standards,” he said.

The Department of Health earlier said that carolers must wear face mask and face shield as individuals expel more respiratory particles when singing, posing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Outgoing Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Guillermo Eleazar on Wednesday urged the police force to rally behind the leadership of his successor, Police Lieutenant General Dionardo Carlos.

Carlos was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte to replace Eleazar, who is set to retire on Friday, November 13 as he reaches the mandatory retirement age of 56.

“The President has decided, now is the perfect time for the PNP to express our unity and solidarity behind the chain of command as we welcome a new leader who will ensure continuity of command in our organization,” Eleazar said in a statement.

Eleazar said Carlos needs all the support to face the challenges and accomplish the mission to eradicate criminality and illegal drugs in the country.

“The mission ahead is as huge as the responsibility that rests on the shoulders of General Carlos. I wish him all the best in the new post even as I offer myself in my humble capacity as a retired PNP Chief in whatever assistance I can provide,” he said.

Carlos is a member of Philippine Military Academy Maringal Class of 1988.

Prior to his appointment as the country’s top cop, he served as PNP spokesperson and chief of the Aviation Security Group. He also headed the PNP Directorial Staff.

He will serve as PNP chief until his retirement on May 8, 2022.
