Philippine cops eyed in 8-year-old's abduction

A GROUP of rogue policemen believed to have forged an alliance with a notorious organized crime group is being eyed in the abduction of an eight-year old boy in a school bus in Laguna. The victim was rescued by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation in Taytay, Rizal Tuesday days after he was snatched in front of his classmates in Barangay San Francisco, BiƱan, Laguna. Highly-reliable sources said the suspects who are known to have links with the dreaded Ozamis –Alferez organized crime group are also believed responsible for at least two other recent kidnapping incidents. “We’re still investigating the real identities and background of the suspects,” a security official who refused to be named said. Justice Secretary Leila de Lima insisted that the abductors of the boy tried to demand ransom from his parents until an informant led NBI operatives to a small house inside Pinesville Subdivision in Taytay where they found the victim alone and starving. The abandoned shanty had been subjected to a routine inspection by police investigators hoping to find more clues that will lead them to the kidnappers. Investigators are also trying to locate the anonymous caller who tipped off the location of the victim amid the possibility that the informant knows something about the incident. De Lima ordered the NBI to transfer the boy to the custody of the PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group for further investigation.

2 ‘hulidap’ cops face 2 more extort raps

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 00:00 FIRST, it was two Koreans. Then, a Japanese. Could there be more? Amid information that a Japanese national has surfaced anew claiming that he too was a victim of extortion by the two Manila Police District (MPD) cops whom Manila Mayor Alfredo S. Lim earlier ordered subjected to summary dismissal proceedings and then charged both administratively and criminally, the mayor is now urging others who may have suffered the same fate to come out and also file a complaint. The call was made by Lim after receiving information that Iwasaki Kinitchi, 53, a Japanese national, went to the MPD-General Assignment Section a couple of days after the two cops were presented by the mayor to media. There, Kinitchi alleged that he, too, was victimized by the duo while he was walking in Makati City on the evening of April 4, Holy Wednesday. Kinitchi, who was accompanied by members of the Makati Police Criminal Investigation Division since it was with Makati that he first lodged his complaint, positively identified the two as PO2 Reynaldo Faller Olivo, 37, of Blk.5 Lot 11, Model Community, Tondo, Manila, and PO1 Vincent Paul Ubaldo Medina, 26, of 2253 F. Munoz St., Singalong, Malate, Manila. Both were assigned at the mobile patrol of MPD-Station 5 and are now out on bail after robbery-extortion charges were filed against them before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office. In his complaint before SPO1 John Cayetano of the MPD-GAS, Kinitchi said Olivo and Medina threatened to charge them with illegally staying in the country and in exchange for freedom, they allegedly took his money amounting to P155,000 in all. It will be recalled that prior to this, Lim presented Olivo and Medina before the media after two Koreans, identified as Lee Jun Hee and Baek Sung Kyun, positively identified them from a gallery of photos as the ones who ‘accosted’ them and then took their money amounting to P20,000 near the vicinity of the Malate Church last April 7, or on Black Saturday. Noting that the two cops have the ranks of police officers 1 and 2 and are therefore relatively new in the police force, Lim said: “Once again, I reiterate my call on all members of the police, including those who are yet planning on becoming policemen, that they should never consider entering the force as a quick means to make money because that is not what becoming a policeman is all about.” Lim also stressed that as he has said time and again, the badge and uniform must never be used as a license to commit wrongdoings or abuses against hapless civilians, as he frowned on information that Olivo and Medina were reportedly in their uniforms and were aboard a mobile car when the incident happened. The victims claimed they were casually whiling time away and walking in Malate from their hotel at around 3 a.m. of the said date when the two cops accosted them and then took their money amounting to P20,000. Accompanied by Wesley Co and Leo Anthony Balantac of the Korean Embassy’s legal office, the victims filed a complaint before the MPD-General Assignment Section and identified the policemen who ‘victimized’ them from a gallery of photos presented to them.

Manila cop accused of robbery-extortion killed

Philippine Daily Inquirer 2:28 am | Friday, June 22nd, 2012 A Manila policeman who had been linked to two cases of robbery-extortion involving foreigners was shot dead in Tondo Thursday morning. Police Officer 2 Reynaldo Faller Olivo Jr., 38, had just dropped off his son at Tondo High School and was on his way home on his motorcycle when two men shot him. As the victim fell off his motorcycle, one of them shot him in the face, case investigator Senior Police Officer 4 Paul Dennis Javier said. The victim, who was assigned to the Manila Police District Headquarters Support Unit, figured in the news after he was suspended in April for 90 days. This was after he was accused by three foreigners of robbery-extortion. On April 4, Iwasaki Kinitchi, a Japanese tourist, filed a complaint against him and another policeman, PO1 Vincent Paul Ubaldo Medina, claiming the two had threatened to charge him with being an illegal alien if he did not give them P155,000. The same charge was made by two Koreans who said the lawmen took P20,000 in cash from them.

Philippine Policemen Protecting Criminals that victimize Foreign Tourist Arrested

The Philippines is a dangerous place for Foreign Tourist, children that begs in the street of Manila victimize Foreign Tourist. They will approach tourist to beg while the tourists are unaware, another beggar will steal their wallets. The sad part is Philippine Policemen acts as a protector to these criminals. When they get caught the police protectors will act as arresting officers, then when the victims are gone they will just let them go. Good thing they got arrested for a moment. I'm sure once they post bail this activity will continue.

Dirty Cops

Here are news clippings about an alarming trend in the Philippines, crimes done by Police are increasing:

'Most cops tagged in abuses are new'
By Cecille Suerte Felipe The Philippine Star Updated June 10, 2012 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines – Most of the policemen involved in abuses, irregularities and crimes are rookies, usually with the rank of Police Officer 1 or 2, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Nicanor Bartolome said Friday.

Bartolome said the PNP is now evaluating the training modules for police applicants to determine and address the problem on crime involvement of police officers, who just entered the police service.

“We are studying the factors why our new policemen got involved in abuses. We have already strengthened the procedure in the neuro–psychiatric evaluation to ensure only the mentally fit are accepted in the force,” Bartolome said.

He said he has instructed unit commanders to conduct a periodic dialogue with their members to guide them in their daily activities, particularly in dealing with the public.

The PNP chief added that they are evaluating the background of every rookie police officer who committed abuses.

He also noted that the immediate superiors of policemen involved in crimes will also be evaluated on why he or she failed to guide their personnel.

Bartolome said they are investigating policemen who allegedly robbed a family in Manila last month. The victims later identified the policemen when they went to the police station to report the crime.

“What I can promise is that we won’t allow erring cops to stay in the police service,” he said.

A traffic enforcer, Jonathan Mariano was also shot and killed when he tried to run after the suspects. While a bystander named, Gibson Urban, was wounded in the incident.

Police Officers Yure Jayson Smith Afos and Noel Almeda Breboneria, Jr. were both assigned at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Headquarters Support Service in Camp Crame, Quezon City. The said two were reportedly not on their duty nor on their listed addresses in Quezon City when the incident happened.

Ex-Marine Sgt. Rey Rufino, who was arrested immediately after the incident, pointed the two police officers as his accomplices. He also pointed out in a recent interview which was shown on ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol, that the motive wasn’t just to take the victims’ money - that it also involves with the meat trading business.

Together with the P112,000 cash which was taken from one of the traders, and a .45 caliber automatic pistol which Rufino used, just a few distance away from the public market, a get-away car parked along Caruncho Avenue, Barangay San Nicolas, was also discovered, thus where the IDs and other stuff of the 2 policemen were found.

Family hogtied, robbed by Sta. Ana cops

    MANILA, Philippines - Four men, including two policemen, broke into the house of a real estate firm executive, hogtied his family and took nearly P3 million in valuables in Sta. Ana, Manila Wednesday night.

    When sales manager Mico Bagui, 36, and his wife, Shantal, 34, went to the nearest police station Friday to report the crime, they were surprised to find that two of the robbers were members of the Manila Police District (MPD) Station 6 in Sta. Ana.

    Police Officer 1 Roberto Cruz, who happened to be at the station, was arrested by his colleagues and charged with robbery.

    Another Station 6 policeman, PO3 Morris Balindog, has gone into hiding, officials said.

    The Baguis told The STAR yesterday that four men barged into their home at around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, looking for a certain “Eric” and “Anton.”

    He said the men told them to lay face down on the floor, then hogtied them and herded them into the bathroom.

    “They took everything… jewelries, money and even food in the refrigerator. They even took perfumes and baby diapers,” Shantal said.

    The family said they lost only P15,000 cash, but their jewelry and watches like Rolex, Cartier and Chopard were taken.

    Earlier, acting on tip from a source, Bagui and several policemen tried locating the suspects and came upon barangay security chief Regente Osalla, who was apparently trying to help Balindog and his wife escape. The Baguis also positively identified Osalla during a confrontation at the MPD headquarters yesterday.

    Cruz and Osalla denied the allegation but police investigators said their alibis cannot stand against the identification of the victims.

    Osalla said he was at the barangay hall at the time the crime was committed and he did not know anything about the activities of the two policemen until Balindog’s wife called him up and instructed him to bring them their car, some clothes and money to a designated meeting place.

    He said he was about to meet the Balindogs when he was arrested.
