7 Cops Involved in Fake Buy-Bust and Killing 6 People in Bulacan Face Charges
The Philippine National Police (PNP) is now on the hunt against 7 cops who were found guilty for the fake buy-bust and killed 6 people in Bulacan.
Seven police officers in Bulacan are facing murder and arbitrary detention charges in connection with the murder of six persons in February 2020, which they described as a buy-bust operation. On February 13, 2020, the police “unlawfully and forcibly” arrested the six victims at Towerville, Barangay Sto. Cristo, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, according to the DOJ.
The cops then claimed that those individuals arrested were narcotics suspects. They were allegedly escorted to a police station in the city, where their eyes were covered and their wrists were bound in a chamber.
The officers were identified as Police Staff Sergeant Benjie Enconado, Police Staff Sergeant Irwin Joy Yuson, Police Corporal Marlon Martus, Police Corporal Edmund Catubay Jr., Police Corporal Harvy Albino, Police Corporal Herbert Hernandez, and Patrolman Rusco Virnar Audience, according to a press release issued by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Tuesday.
The DOJ is said to have made its conclusion based on the evidence of the individual who guarded the victims while they were in custody. The victims were apprehended by the police as they traveled through an area where a buy-bust operation was taking place, according to the statement.
The only issue is that the DOJ is unable to say whether the Philippine National Police is aware of the officers’ whereabouts. Chamberlain Domingo, Chadwin Santos, Edmar Aspirin, Richard Salgado, Erwin Mergal, and Jim Joshua Cordero were among the victims.
