MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine National Police (PNP) said it dismissed over 100 policemen from the service during the first six months of 2013 in keeping with the PNP’s resolve to weed out misfits from its ranks.

Citing records from the Directorate for Personnel and Records Management, PNP chief, Director General Alan Purisima, said that from January 1 to June 30, 104 police personnel were terminated for their involvement in cases ranging from grave misconduct, serious irregularities, and other criminal activities.
At the same time, 428 other members of the police force were meted disciplinary sanctions for administrative offenses and involvement in irregularities.

Penalties include demotion in rank, suspension, forfeiture of salary, reprimand, restriction to quarters, and withholding of privileges.

Moreover, of the 2,060 administrative and criminal cases that involved police officers, the PNP said only 797—most of which were carried over from previous years—are still waiting resolution in the summary hearing boards.

“All 2,060 cases stemmed from complaints which were all investigated and acted upon at the different levels of command, some of the respondents were meted non-disciplinary sanctions while others were either exonerated or their cases dropped,” he said.

Press Statement of 
July Issues

On behalf of the DILG-PNP-NAPOLCOM Family, I am pleased to announce the successful results of Case Operation Plan Gemini 2 and Case Operation Plan “Lily”, as approved by PNP Chief, Director General Alan L Purisima, involving a series of interdiction operations against wanted persons and organized crime groups launched over the weekend by the Police Regional Office 4A under Chief Supt. Benito Estipona and the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group under Chief Supt. Francisco Uyami in DasmariƱas, Cavite; Lian, Batangas; and San Juan City

Most significant is the capture of four fugitives from justice, including convicted serial bank robber Ricky CADAVERO alias KAMBAL, 36, who bolted the New Bilibid Prison in December last year; and two convicted Chinese drug traffickers, couple Li Lan Yan alias Jackson Dy/ Henry Reyes Gomez and Wang Li Na who escaped from the custody of the Cavite Provincial Jail last February.

The fugitive Chinese couple were arrested at their rented house at 311-A Infante St., Infante Subdivision, P. Guevarra, San Juan City shortly after midnight on Saturday, July 13, 2013 by a CIDG team backed by units of the PNP Intelligence Group (IG) and ISAFP.

The arrest of the fugitive Chinese couple was preceded by another operation in DasmariƱas, Cavite where manhunt teams captured the elusive “Kambal” Cadavero and his trusted lieutenant, Wilfredo “Kulot” PANOGALINGA Jr. y Damas, 34, a sub-leader of the Ozamiz Group who is an escapee from Ozamiz City jail, and a key suspect in the shooting of American Robert Armstrong during a robbery at a 711 convenience store in Malate, Manila  in September 2012.

Cadavero and Panogalinga were arrested on Friday, July 12 in  Brgy San Agustin 2, Dasmarinas, Cavite by operatives of the Regional Special Operations Group of PRO4A led by Superintendent Danilo Mendoza, and Cavite PPO under Sr Supt Alexander Rafael.
Other members of the Ozamiz Group arrested in separate operations in Cavite and 

Batangas were:

1. Nestor BUENABENTE y Fuertes alias Moklo,
2. Rogie SORIANO y Fuentez alias Tong
3. Cesar DEVERA y Santos alias Cesar,
4. Donde Pedrosa y Labajo alias Dondon,
5. Alvin CUYAG y Tiongson alias Ben, and
6. Dave Clark LAGO y Bagaboyboy @ Carlo
These successful police operations are in line with the current operational thrust of the PNP against organized crime groups, wanted persons, and loose firearms, with emphasis on the immediate solution of high profile cases.

Continuing operations are underway particularly to re-capture the third Chinese fugitive, Li Tian Hua, and other affiliates of the Ozamiz Group.

The capture of the four high-profile fugitives underscore inter-agency coordination on law enforcement concerns that the PNP committed to support.

Cadavero, Li Lan Yan and Wang Li Na are now considered national prisoners, after having been convicted by the court to serve sentence for their crime. Upon completion of the procedural booking, debriefing and documentation process, we will now be turning Cadavero over to the Bureau of Corrections authorities under Director Franklin Bucayu. A similar arrangement for the turnover of Panogalinga is also being coordinated with the BJMP.
