Sun.Star Cebu - - TOP STORIES -

A line­man of a ca­ble com­pany com­plained against a Po­lice Of­fi­cer 3 from the Car­bon Po­lice Sta­tion who al­legedly beat him up last Wed­nes­day morn­ing. The In­ves­ti­ga­tion and De­tec­tion Man­age­ment Branch (IDMB) chief, Supt. Ryan De­varas, said that the po­lice of­fi­cer was still un­der pre­ven­tive sus­pen­sion for six months, while the Of­fice of the Om­buds­man is in­ves­ti­gat­ing his case of sim­ple mis­con­duct. “He had another pend­ing case in the Om­buds­man. The line­man went to the re­gional head­quar­ters and was for­warded to our of­fice,” the of­fi­cial said. De­varas said that they al­ready sent a let­ter to the po­lice of­fi­cer (name with­held), sum­mon­ing him to face the com­plainant and ex­plain him­self. “The po­lice of­fi­cer’s sis­ter was the one who had prob­lems with their ca­ble ser­vice and when it seemed that she was not sat­is­fied with the line­man’s an­swer, the for­mer re­sponded. The po­lice­man al­legedly beat him up,” De­varas said. The in­ci­dent hap­pened in Si­tio Kawayan, Banawa, Guadalupe last Wed­nes­day at 9 a.m. De­varas said that the po­lice­man has yet to meet with the com­plainant.
