Lo­cal po­lice ready to face Se­nate probe

Cebu Daily News - - NEWS -

PO­LICE­MEN in Cen­tral Visayas are ready to face sen­a­tors should a Se­nate in­quiry on the spate of killings in Cebu push through.

Supt. Rey­man To­lentin, spokesper­son of the Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice in Cen­tral Visayas (PRO-7), said that they do not have any prob­lems on the call of some sen­a­tors to in­ves­ti­gate the killings.

“We will wait for the di­rec­tives of the higher ups (Camp Crame) and we will com­ply,” said To­lentin confident that PRO-7 had a “strong de­fense” against the al­le­ga­tions.

To­lentin said that PRO-7 will stand firm on its pre­vi­ous state­ment that there are no ex­tra-ju­di­cial killings in Cebu.

Op­po­si­tion sen­a­tors had called for a se­nate in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the re­cent killings in Cebu which were al­legedly com­mit­ted by po­lice­men.

A state­ment sent by the camp of de­tained Sen­a­tor Leila de Lima on Thurs­day said op­po­si­tion sen­a­tors filed Se­nate Res­o­lu­tion No. 915 be­cause they were “gravely con­cerned” with the killings in Cebu amid al­le­ga­tions of EJKs com­mit­ted in the po­lice anti-drug cam­paign./
