Once again, lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles has taken to social media to share her opinion on Gen. Albayalde’s media blitz after former CIDG Chief Gen. & now Baguio City Mayor Ben Magalong implicated him in the “ninja cops” controversy.
In a Facebook post published at 3 October 2019, Angeles remarked that Gen. Albayalde’s strategy of blaming Magalong is bad PR and illogical defense.
Instead, Angeles said that she would rather want Albayalde to explain his role in the 2013 police raid that netted over 200 kilos of shabu than blaming the whistle-blower.
Meanwhile, Angeles defended Magalong from Albayalde’s counter-offensive like questioning Magalong’s failure to implement the dismissal order versus the “ninja cops” that was already released in 2013.
Angeles said that Magalong was not an implementor of decisions of removal because his job description as CIDG Chief was to investigate.
Second, assuming Magalong as the CIDG Chief has the capacity to implement, the dismissal order was not final and executory yet because the respondents has yet to receive notice of dismissal. Besides, the respondents have the right to file a motion for reconsideration.

When interviewed by Erwin Tulfo, sabi ni Gen Albayalde na in 2013, may dismissal order na ang mga s called ninja cops. Bakid daw di inimplement ni Gen. Magalong.
Una. Hindi implementor ng decisions ng removal ang CIDG. INVESTIGATIVE po sila.
Pangalawa. Assuming may capacity nag implement si Gen. Magalong, HINDI PA FINAL AND EXECUTORY ito nung 2013. Kasi nga wala pang notice ang mga respondents. At may karapatan pa sila mag Motion for Recon.
Wth. Gen. Albayalde has been making the rounds of media, BLAMING Mayor. Magalong. Imbes na i-explain yung ROLE NIYA sa operation na nag neto ng over 200kilos ng shabu, nambibintang siya ng whistleblower.
Bad PR. Illogical defense.

Antonio Salazar Tama! Mayor Magalong has facts and evidence. Albayalde should controvert it in the proper forum.
