PRO3 FILES RAPS ON COPS INVOLVED IN IRREGULAR ANTI-DRUG OPERATIONS
CAMP OLIVAS, CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, PAMPANGA- Police Regional Office 3 Regional Director PCSUPT RAUL D PETRASANTA announced that on March 11, 2014 a case for Violation of Sec 27 of Article II of RA 9165 has been filed before the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor, City of San Fernando, Pampanga against PSUPT RODNEY RAYMUND LOUIE BALOYO IV former chief of Pampanga Provincial Intelligence Branch(PIB), PSINSP JOVEN B DE GUZMAN JR, former Pampanga Anti-illegal Drugs Operations Special Operations Task Group (PAIDSOTG) and eleven of their personnel, who were first subjected to preventive suspension on March 3, 2014 to pave way on the conduct of summary hearing proceedings on their administrative case which all stemmed from an alleged irregularities in the conduct of anti-illegal drugs operation on November 29, 2013 in Narra St., Woodbriged Subd., Lakeshore, Mexico, Pampanga.
PCSUPT RAUL D PETRASANTA, had already approved the recommendation of the investigating body after careful and thorough evaluation of evidence and accounts of witnesses and respondents on the alleged buy bust for the relief of PSSUPT OSCAR D ALBAYALDE, Acting Provincial Director of Pampanga Provincial Office under The Doctrine of Command Responsibility due to his failure to take corrective action at his level despite the chance given to him to do so. Relatedly the request for clearance on PSSUPT ALBAYALDE’S relief as a matter of standard operating procedure of the PNP on the relief and reassignment of unit commanders and key officers was already submitted to the Office of the Chief, PNP following an in-depth probe being conducted by PRO3 on the case. Said clearance is necessary to effect the said relief as the Regional Director has no blanket authority to implement outright the relief of an officer of such level
. As of press time, the Relief Order is still pending awaiting the approval of the said clearance from the Office of the C, PNP.
PCSUPT PETRASANTA said that the move of dismissing and disciplining erring police personnel shows efforts of the police in removing bad eggs in the police force, and that the rule of law does not distinguish rank, position or popularity whether victim or respondent in the PNP organization.
“This is a manifestation of the keen determination of the PNP to remove misfits among the ranks of the PNP”, he further remarked.
