Sun.Star Baguio - - Topstories - Jonathan Llanes Sun*Star Re­porter

BAGUIO City Mayor Mauri­cio Do­mo­gan have called on the pub­lic to as­sist the Baguio City Po­lice Of­fice(BCPO) Task Group Bedi­jim for any in­for­ma­tion which would lead to the ar­rest of the sus­pect/s in the grue­some killing of Mus­lim Cleric Bedi­jim Ab­dul­lah on De­cem­ber 6,2018.

Do­mo­gan said the lo­cal gov­ern­ment of Baguio is hop­ing for some­one to help iden­tify the sus­pect/s since his iden­tity seen on CCTV footages have been seen on print and broad­cast.

“The BCPO are now fol­low­ing leads and I am not at lib­erty to di­vulge the in­for­ma­tion as this might af­fect the on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the task group which has been tasked to do the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. We have asked them to val­i­date the in­for­ma­tion be­cause in­for­ma­tion given to them might only be for the

pur­pose of the re­ward and not for the so­lu­tion of the case,” Do­mo­gan ex­plained.

Newly in­stalled Baguio City Po­lice Di­rec­tor Po­lice(BCPO) Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Eliseo Tand­ing in De­cem­ber last year an­nounced the cre­ation of a Spe­cial In­ves­ti­ga­tion Task Group Bedi­jim to de­ter­mine the mo­tive of the killing of the Imam, and the iden­tity of the per­pe­tra­tor/s.

Do­mo­gan stated their en­gage­ment with the top brass lead­er­ship of the Mus­lim com­mu­nity in the city who have shared some for­ma­tion on the killing of the Imam.

“We have briefed them by show­ing the CCTV footages which was pub­lished and we call on any­one who can iden­tify the per­pe­tra­tors so that we may know from where he is and to learn the mo­tive be­hind the killing,” Do­mo­gan added.
