PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde has been dragged by former PNP General and Baguio City mayor Benjamin Magalong in the “ninja cops” issue in yesterday’s senate hearing.
As expected, PNP Chief Albayalde fired back at Magalong and put his accuser in a spotlight by telling Magalong that he could have arrested the ninja cops himself since at that time he was the CIDG Chief.
“Then-CIDG director Magalong could have done everything in all his power. He could have followed up. After 6 years this is an issue again. Hindi ko alam kung anong gustong ipalabas ni General Magalong (I really do not know what General Magalong wants to show here).” [Rappler]
Let us go back to 2013 when then Colonel and now PNP Chief Oscar Albyalde was Pampanga’s provincial director as summarized by retired broadcaster Jay Sonza.
According to Sonza, in 2013 an incident called “agaw-shabu, robbery-hold up, hijacking, extortion, illegal detention” happened.
The actual “raid/buy-bust” happened at 10 AM, November 23, 2013 (in the absence of barangay and media witnesses). This was inconsistent with the police report which recorded the incident in the afternoon of November 29, 2013.
A Korean drug lord was apprehended in the entrapment but disappeared like a bubble. A Chinese national was jailed but he was not physically present at the scene of entrapment.
Appropriate charges were filed vs all the people involved in the “raid/buy-bust” but none were removed from service, some of them were even promoted, some of them grew rich and all of them suddenly became instant car owners after the incident.
The confiscated “shabu” around 200 kilos contained inside a huge “maleta” or suitcase was reported as 35 kilos, reduced to an equivalent of 1 plastic bag.
The P55M money confiscated from the Korean drug lord was reported as P300,000 cash.
The price of shabu in Pampanga and Central Luzon dropped dramatically as the 200 kilos flooded the illegal dr*gs market since December 2013.
The cars/SUVS owned by the Korean drug lord disappeared without a trace. According to report, the car was sold 3 times in a day.
Sonza said there was a dismissal order instructing that all the policemen involved in the 2013 Pampanga incident, but nothing happened.
According to former PNP region 3 director Aaron Aquino, he called General Albayalde to talk about it, for the sake of his former men and Cabalens. We don’t know what was Albayalde’s response to Aquino’s phone call.
