9 Jolo cops in Army soldiers’ slay released

Republika

Don’t look now, but the cordial ties between the Philippine Army (PA) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) may just have hit rock-bottom.

This comes in the wake of the release of nine Jolo policemen who had been indicted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the killing of four Army intelligence personnel in Jolo, Sulu last June.


Unnamed Camp Crame officials said the suspects were released from custody since there wasn’t any arrest warrant against them. “We could end up being charged with unlawful detention.”


The nine cops were freed from custody and turned over to relatives because they automatically became civilians after being dismissed from the service last January 1, 2021.


They were found guilty of various administrative offenses in connection with the broad daylight ambush-slay in the Jolo town market of Maj. Marvin Indammog, Capt. Irwin Managuelod, Cpl. Abdal Asula and Sgt. Jaime Velasco who were on a surveillance mission against suspected Abu Sayyaf terrorists.


Justice Sec. Menardo Guevarra complained that the suspects were released despite requests from his office to temporarily hold this in abeyance until the issuance of the requisite arrest warrants.
