PNP Reached Out to Atong Ang for the Investigation of Missing “Sabungeros”
The Philippine National Police (PNP) has reached out to business tycoon Atong Ang to asked for help in the investigation of the missing “sabungeros”.
The PNP has enlisted the aid of Charlie ‘Atong’ Ang in the search for the missing sabungeros. According to a representative for the PNP, PCpl. Ang has already been contacted by Jean Fajardo of the Criminal Inquiry and Detection Group (CIDG) to aid in the investigation.
“Yung CIDG director po, no less than Major General Albert Ferro, ay nakipag-meeting na po kay Ginoong Atong Ang para nga po magbigay linaw dito sa ginagawang investigation,” Fajardo said in an interview with dzBB.
According to Fajardo, the CIDG investigation revealed that the venues where the missing victims participated in cockfighting activities are administered by WPC, which she claims is linked to Ang. Ang is claimed to be willing to cooperate, and several of the well-known gaming tycoon’s employees have already submitted police statements.
She said that some of Ang’s guys, including his security officers, had already given the investigators their statements. The PNP has yet to determine if the missing sabungeros are alive or dead.
The PNP previously said that it had identified several individuals of interest in connection with the disappearance of cockfighting fans from various places. Some of the missing were last spotted in Laguna and Manila cockpits.
The number of reported missing cockfight aficionados has now risen to 29, according to CIDG public information office chief Police Lieutenant Colonel Ramon Sawan.
The Philippine National Police first reported an incident involving four males who went missing after taking part in a cockfight game in Sta. Cruz, Laguna, on the 13th of January. Six guys went missing the same day after competing in a cockfighting contest in Manila.
