Nine policemen tagged in the shooting of four soldiers in Jolo, Sulu on June 29 are now under restrictive custody at Camp Crame, according to the Philippine National Police (PNP).
The PNP identified the policemen as Police Senior Master Sergeant Abdelzhimar Padjiri; Police Master Sergeant Hanie Baddiri; Police Staff Sergeant Iskandar Susulan; Police Staff Sergeant Ernisar Sappal; Police Corporal Sulki Andaki; Patrolman Moh. Nur Pasani; Police Staff Sergeant Almudzrin Hadjaruddin; Patrolman Alkajal Mandangan and Patrolman Rajiv Putalan.
The policemen were transferred to Camp Crame after the second test result for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) of one of the cops turned out negative. His first COVID-19 rapid test last Friday (July 3) was positive.
According to the PNP Spokesperson PBGen. Bernard Banac, the nine non-commissioned police officers will be available for inquiry at Camp Crame while the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) conducts further investigation on the shooting incident.
“Anytime na lumabas ang resulta ng imbestigasyon ng NBI ay kailangan na sumailaim sila sa proseso. So kung ito man ay nangangahulugan ng pagsasampa ng kaso ay nariyan agad sila para sumailalim sa proseso, (Anytime the NBI investigation result is released, they need to undergo the process. So if it means filing of cases, they will be present to go through the process),” he said.
Meanwhile, PNP Chief PGen. Archie Gamboa urges the nine cops to cooperate with the NBI on the investigation.
“We should participate and we should cooperate fully with the NBI kasi kung ang ginawa niyo naman tama then wala kayong worry pero siyempre kapag mali then mananagot talaga kayo, (if you have done the right thing, then there is nothing to worry about but of course, if you are wrong then you will be held accountable),” he said.
