GAMBOA ORDERS RESTRICTIVE CUSTODY OF 11 BULACAN COPS
PNP Chief, Police General Archie Gamboa ordered the administrative relief and restrictive custody of 11 police personnel of San Jose Del Monte City Police Station named respondents in a case for kidnapping with murder filed before the Department of Justice.
Gamboa assured the full cooperation and support of the PNP to the National Bureau of Investigation in the deeper probe into the alleged involvement of 11 members of the City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU) of SJDM Police Station who earlier filed a report of an alleged encounter with six suspected drug traffickers who all died in the gunbattle.
Gamboa instructed PBGen Rhodel Sermonia, PRO3 Regional Director in Central Luzon to place the 11 policemen under restrictive custody to ensure their availability to face further investigation; and administrative relief to preclude the possibility of exerting undue influence in the ongoing investigation by the DOJ Prosecution Service and the internal investigation by the PNP.
Named respondents in the information filed by NBI before the National Prosecution Service for alleged kidnapping with murder were CDEU Chief, Police Major Leo Commendador Dela Rosa, and his subordinates Police Staff Sergeants Benjie Enconado, Jayson Legaspi, Irwin Yuson, Edmund Catubay Jr.; Police Corporals Jay Leoncio, Herbert Hernandez, Raymond Bayan, Raul Malgapo; and Patrolmen Erwin Sabido and Rusco Madla.
