A retired PNP official fell to the trap of the law during a manhunt operation of PNP-IMEG. This is in line with the 5-Focus Agenda of the CPNP, and as part of the implementation of aggressive and honest law enforcement and relentless campaign against wanted active and former members of the Philippine National Police.

In a report submitted to PBGEN WARREN F DE LEON, Group Director, PNP-IMEG it was divulged that at about 10:40 AM, joint elements of Team 2, LFU-IMEG (Lead Unit) and Tuguegarao City Police Station, Cagayan PPO, served the Warrant of Arrest against Police Major formerly assigned at RMFB2 as EOD Team Leader for the crime of Slander.

The operation stemmed from the WOA issued by Hon. Racquel C. Reyes- Aglaua, Presiding Judge, Municipal Trial Court in Cities, Second Capital Judicial Region, Branch 1, Tuguegarao City under Criminal Case No. 28759 dated September 7, 2023.

As a backgrounder, the offense emanated when he was then the Chief of Investigation Section, Tuguegarao CPS in 2017. In the said year, he entertained a client at their office and for unknown reason, he uttered unsavory remarks against the latter that prompted the same client to lodge a complaint against him.

The arrested person is now temporarily detained at Tuguegarao City Police Station, Cagayan PPO for documentation prior to the return of the arrest warrant to the issuing court.

“Wala tayong sasantuhin dito, mataas man o mababa ang katungkulan ng isang pulis, aktibo man o retirado. Hanggat sila ay may paglabag o pinaghahanap ng batas, ang PNP-IMEG ay hindi titigil na tugisin at ikulong ang mga iilang miyembro ng kapulisan na patuloy pa din na dumudungis sa organisasyon.” PBGEN DE LEON also stated.
