Cavite PNP relieves Gen. Trias top cop, 2 others for forcing quarantine violators
The provincial director of the Philippine National Police in Cavite said he has relieved Police Lieutenant Colonel Marlo Nillo Solero for command responsibility as two of his men ordered apprehended quarantine violators to do military exercises.
This is believed to have led to the death of Darren Peñaredondo, who died shortly after the physical activities.
PNP Spokesman Ildebrandi Usana made the announcement on Wednesday.
“The chief of police, who made a statement of denial earlier, and the two cops are now placed under the direct supervision and control of the Provincial Director who went straight to GT to validate for himself from vital witnesses what actually happened during that fateful night that may probably be one of the preceding causes of the death of Mr Darren Peñaredondo,” Usana said in a statement.
Investigation is ongoing.
“This is to also assure that the PNP does not tolerate any act that is inimical to the best interest of our people, particularly the aggrieved parties in this particular case,” he added.
