Senate summons Bato

Image

Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa is unfazed and will enter the lion’s den once summoned.

The chief of the Philippine National Police is set to be called to a hearing of the Senate committee on justice and human rights on Aug. 22-23 on the spate of alleged extrajudicial killings in President Duterte’s war on illegal drugs.

“Yes, we will face it,” Dela Rosa said on Thursday in an interview with reporters in General Santos City. “It’s part of our job, if we will be required to attend.”

Sen. Leila de Lima, the committee chair, said other PNP officials, Commission on Human Rights officials and witnesses would be invited to the hearing on the relentless campaign of the administration that has claimed more than 700 lives.

“We will accord them due respect,” said De Lima, a vocal critic of Mr. Duterte’s campaign against illegal drugs.

“We have to determine the facts. We have to know the truth. We have to find out exactly why this is happening, find out how many have been killed in the course of this intensified drive against drugs,” De Lima said, adding that both deaths in police operations and vigilante-linked incidents would be investigated.

The inquiry aims to draw up legislation that would institutionalize respect for human rights in the conduct of police operations, said De Lima.

The PNP put the toll of lives at 449 at the weekend from police operations against drug dealers since Mr. Duterte took office. An Inquirer count places the death toll at 711 from July 1 to Aug. 9, including 242 cases attributed to vigilantes.



Timing questioned

Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, who is not a member of the committee but attended the closed-door meeting on Thursday morning, expressed concern at the timing of the hearing.

“There are so many things that the police need, the judges and prosecution services need toward a successful antidrug campaign. Why should we do the investigating first?” said Cayetano, Duterte’s running mate in the May 9 elections.

“We can look at the Whistle-blowers Act first, the [restoration of the] death penalty, strengthening the courts,” he said.

Misgivings

Sen. Panfilo Lacson, chair of the committee on public order and dangerous drugs, said: “I am attending the hearings if only to focus on the summary killings perpetrated by nonpolice personnel. But I have misgivings about indicting the police organization, that they are involved in summary killings. But let’s find out, let’s see how things develop during the hearing.”

Lacson earlier expressed apprehension about the De Lima-led inquiry premised on allegations of police overkill, citing his experience going through lengthy court proceedings for the alleged use of excessive force in the death of 11 members of the Kuratong Baleleng crime syndicate in 1995.

Lacson, a former PNP chief, was cleared of the charges for lack of probable cause in 2013, with the Supreme Court ruling on the case with finality.

Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella on Thursday defended the antidrug campaign mounted by Mr. Duterte, who was elected on a platform that centered on eliminating the drug menace, criminality and corruption in three to six months of his presidency.

Abella said the President had “never ordered extrajudicial killings.”

“He is deeply concerned about what’s happening,” Abella told a news conference in Malacañang.

He said Mr. Duterte had ordered the PNP and the National Police Commission to look into allegations of summary executions of drug suspects.



1.3 million drug users

The public, he added, should be thankful to the President for presenting the country’s drug problem, which, according to the Dangerous Drugs Board, had affected 99 percent of barangays in Metropolitan Manila and 27 percent of the nation’s 42,000 barangays. The board said 1.3 million Filipinos were using illegal drugs.

Abella defended what critics called the President’s “name and shame” campaign when he released on Sunday the names of 159 officials, judges, soldiers and policemen allegedly involved in the narcotics trade.

“I think we should appreciate the fact that he is calling our attention to it,” he said. “It’s not, by the way, (making) accusations. It’s an ample warning that your name is on the list and for you to clear (your name).”

In a statement yesterday, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines urged the administration to submit to the Supreme Court complaints against judges allegedly involved in illegal drugs.

“The President, as head of the executive department, may have been impelled by urgent considerations in his public censure of government officials under him, but on the other hand, judges perform unique functions so essential in the dispensation of justice that require insulation or protection from all types of unwarranted pressure,” said IBP president Rosario Setias-Reyes.

Mayor orders arrest of uncle

Mayor Roderick Alcala

LUCENA CITY—The war on illegal drugs knows no family ties.

Mayor Roderick Alcala on Wednesday ordered the city police to arrest his uncle, Cerilo “Athel” Alcala, for his alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade.

Cerilo, first cousin of the mayor’s late father, has been identified by police as among the big-time traders of “shabu” (methamphetamine hydrochloride) in Lucena City and nearby towns in Quezon province.

Cerilo is the younger brother of former Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala and Quezon Rep. Vicente Alcala.

“There is no sacred cow,” Mayor Alcala told the Inquirer.

Alcala said he appealed to his uncle to stop involvement in drugs several years ago. “But I can only do so much as a relative. I have my sworn duty to uphold,” he said.

Cerilo and his son, Sajid, had been arrested thrice on drug charges. They have been, however, released several years ago.

Asked why Cerilo has yet to be captured despite his order, Alcala said: “Arresting suspected criminals is a police matter. They have their own rules, processes and laws to observe. And I respect that.”

Supt. Dennis de Leon, Lucena City police chief, said the local police is waiting for Cerilo’s surrender.

One of Cerilo’s relatives said members of the Alcala clan had tried to intervene and persuade him to leave the drug trade and clear the family’s name. Their appeal, however, had been ignored.

In Laguna province, former San Pablo City Mayor Vicente Amante denied anew that he was involved in drug trafficking, after his name was mentioned by President Duterte as among local officials with links to illegal drugs.

Interviewed on Tuesday, Amante admitted his younger brothers, Edwin and Damaso, were into illegal drugs, but quickly said that was over a decade ago.

Amante said Edwin used to be a “user” and Damaso, a “pusher.”

“I’d rather hang myself in the [city] plaza [than get involved in the illegal drug trade],” said Amante.

Isn't China's incursion into Pilipen territory a more serious threat to the Republic? Shouldn't that be more of a priority instead? Has that been addressed by the current administration; perhaps released a statement expressing its policy/stand regarding the matter? The war on drugs is a classic diversion tactic to shift attention away from issues that matter. That's what a classic politician usually do.

PNP probing vigilante killings but admit difficulty without complainants

The online news portal of TV5

MANILA, Philippines -- The Philippine National Police is investigating the increasing murders attributed to vigilantes but admitted difficulties in the absence of complainants.

Estimates of the number of lives lost in the course of President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs have long breached the 600 mark, with roughly a third of these summary executions by either rogue lawmen believed to be silencing those who may squeal on them or vigilantes.

Senior Superintendent Fausto Manzanilla Jr., executive officer of the Directorate for Investigative and Detective Management, told reporters in Camp Crame that they have already gathered data on the victims of summary killings, although he said they have yet to classify them as such, “not unless they are properly investigated.”

“We can establish the real nature of the incident (only) by determining the motive,” Manzanilla said.

He said no police officers have as yet officially admitted the existence of vigilante groups.

“There were reports of that nature, but we don’t have concrete evidence yet to show that these cases were perpetrated by vigilantes …” Manzanilla said, adding he himself personally knows of no such groups.

As to the killings, he said, “we try to categorize them if they are drug related or not and if so … how many of them are users or pushers, we even determine the motive, identify the time and place of commission (as well as) the means of commission.”

Because of this, he admitted they have yet to solve a single of the vigilante killings.

“We don’t want to come up with the result of the investigation where an innocent person will be included … investigation should be evidence-based and we want to come up with the identification of the real perpetrators of crime,” Manzanilla said.

Cebu mayor named by Duterte as ‘coddler cop’ loses control over police
By: Philippine News Agency
August 12, 2016 9:20 AM


Image

CEBU CITY, Philippines -- Vicente Loot, the retired police general who is now mayor of Daanbantayan town in Cebu has been stripped of supervisory powers over the local police by the National Police Commission.

Loot was among the five police generals publicly accused by President Rodrigo Duterte of protecting drug syndicates. He has denied the accusation.

Lawyer Risty Sibay, Napolcom 7 spokesman, confirmed that Duterte’s accusation led to the revocation of Loot’s supervision over his town’s police force.

The Napolcom resolution of revocation was served Thursday noon at the mayor’s office in Daanbantayan, some 120 kilometers north of Cebu City.

Earlier, the Napolcom also stripped Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña of the same powers after the city executive withdrew logistical support for the local police.

The revocation order on Osmeña was served on August 10 on Acting Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella. Osmeña is in the US for his annual medical check-up.

Along with the revocation of their deputation, the Napolcom also pulled out the police escorts of Loot and Osmeña.

Sibay said he has given Cebu Governor Hilario Davide III and Police Regional Office 7 Director Noli Taliño copies of the Napolcom resolution.

The resolution was signed by Interior Secretary Ismael Sueno, the Napolcom chairman, vice chairman Rogelio Casurao, commissioners Felizardo Serapio Jr., Job Mangente and Zenaida Brosas, and Philippine National Police Director General Ronald dela Rosa.

'Most 'shabulized' province?: Ilonggos shocked over Duterte's claim
Alleged narco-politicians, judges, and police personnel from Western Visayas are named for the magnitude and extent of shabu use in the region

ILOILO CITY, Philippines – Ilonggos took to Twitter their disbelief that President Rodrigo Duterte named Iloilo as the most "shabulized" province in the country. The President was referring to the magnitude and extent of shabu use in the province. (READ: Duterte names officials linked to drugs)

Some netizens felt sad and weary about the infamous and deadly tag.

Oplan Toktok Hangyo

Oplan Toktok Hangyo, commonly known as Oplan Tokhang, brought a total of 423 drug pushers and users including 24 on the police watch-list to voluntarily surrender in Iloilo City Police Station 1 (ICPS 1) in July.

Among the persons allegedly involved as drug protectors in the province are mayors Alex Centena of Calinog, Salagunting Betita of Carles, Mariano Malones of Maasin and Jed Patrick Mabilog of Iloilo City.

Duterte also indicated former Guimaras Representative, JC Rahman Nava, Vice Mayor Francis Amboy of Maasin, regional trial court (RTC) judge Sabillo, former city councilor Erwin Plagata, lawyer Antonio Pesina, and Jeffrey Celiz. Celiz was the former spokesperson and executive assistant of Mabilog.

The list also included several police personnel both active in service and retired. He also ordered the police and military officers serving as security teams of the above stated politicians to report to their mother units.

According to PSupt Gilbert Gorrero of the Police Regional Office-6 headquarters in Iloilo City, PRO-6 recalled all Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel who were mentioned in the list.

He also added that all security escorts of the mayors were included in the recall and were ordered to report right away to their immediate supervisors.

Iloilo City mayor denies involvement

Mabilog earlier denied the allegation and called for a speedy investigation.

Mabilog stressed in a press conference that he supports Duterte’s drive against illegal drugs, noting that he has implimented programs against illegal drugs since he became mayor.

“The record will speak for itself – that my administration was always in full support of the needs of the PNP and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), the agencies primarily responsible for the suppression and elimination of illegal drugs in the city, and I have never been remiss in this duty and obligation,’’ he said.

He categorically denied his involvement: “I am not involved in the protection, trade and use of illegal drugs. I am willing to open myself for any investigation, cooperate and submit myself to any court of law.” He also requested for authorities to conduct a speedy investigation since the matter endangers his personal security and life.

Mayor Alex Centina of Calinog clarified that his only association to Iloilo’s alleged drug lord, Melvin Odicta, was purely business.

“He approached me wanting to buy a wild boar, but I told him that I can give it to him in exchange for a Siberian Husky. I knew him as a businessman and a taxi operator,” Centena clarified.

Meanwhile, Maasin Mayor Mariano Malones Sr, appealed to the office of the PNP Regional Office 6 to ask for assistance in the speedy investigation of his involvement in the narco-list.

“My conscience is clear. I have not personally seen a speck of drugs in my lifetime. I do not know any of these drugs personalities either,” Malones said.

Ilonggo leaders call for fairness before the law

Ilonggo Senator Franklin Drilon earlier urged Duterte to immediately charge those in the narco-list administratively or in court, saying that if the officials were indeed involved, due process and the rule of law should take its course.

“I strongly support President Duterte’s anti-drug campaign but due process and the rule of law must be dutifully upheld,” Drilon said in a statement. He also indicated his concern over Iloilo being branded negatively due to the association of its local leader’s alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade.

“All the efforts of the Ilonggos for the past 5 years to make Iloilo an attractive and progressive investment destination and a livevable city is negated by a sweeping judgement of the city and the province of Iloilo," he said.

He added that “whatever these officials may have allegedly done are their individual acts and cannot be the collective guilt of the Ilonggos.”

Representative Jerry Trenas of the lone district of Iloilo also expressed his full support for Duterte’s action to clean up the country of illegal drugs.

“I will give my utmost in my capacity to ensure that this campaign will succeed. Mayor Jed should be given a chance to clear himself in a legal proceeding so that he will be able to present evidence,” Trenas said in his official statement.

Iloilo Governor Art Defensor also stated his support with the alleged narco-mayors of Iloilo. “As a lawyer, it would have been best if the cases were filled against those in the list before calling for a press conference and naming these personalities. But we can’t really lecture the president,” Defensor said on an interview.

“I doubt very much whether the figure or data of PDEA and PNP will justify the statement of the President that Iloilo is the most shabulized province,” Defensor added.

Drilon, Defensor, Trenas and Mabilog ran under Liberal Party during the 2016 elections. - Rappler.com
