Three days after the arrest of an ex-PNP official in Tuguegarao, IMEG operatives embarked on untiring PNP cleansing effort through intensive service of arrest warrants by hauling in an active police officer in the busy city of Gensan in the south.
According to PBGEN WARREN F DE LEON, Director, IMEG, an active patrolman assigned in General Santos City was arrested by the PNP-IMEG by virtue of a Warrant of Arrest issued by Hon. Lorna Barnachea Santiago-Avila, Assisting Judge, 12th Judicial Region, Regional Trial Court, Branch 20, Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat under Criminal Case No. 8099-T (23) and 8100-T (23) dated September 1, 2023 for two counts of psychological abuse under R.A 9262. Spearheaded by PNP-IMEG as the lead unit and other police units on September 12, 2023, at about 10:00 AM along Nunez St. General Santos City.
The arrested person is now temporarily detained at PS 4, General Santos City Police Office PRO 12 for documentation prior the return of the arrest warrant to the issuing court.
“Puspusan at walang humpay ang operasyon ng PNP-IMEG sa pagtugis sa mga wanted ng batas lalong lalo na ang mga abusadong pulis. Kaya tayo ay nanawagan sa ating mga kababayan na dagliang tumawag o dumulog sa alinmang tanggapan ng PNP-IMEG kung ang inyong mga karapatan ay nilabag o inabuso ng kung sino mang miyembro ng kapulisan.” PBGEN DE LEON stated.
