The Na­tional Po­lice Com­mis­sion (Napol­com) in North­ern Min­danao is step­ping in to probe the killing of three men whose bod­ies were found dumped on a cliff in Mal­it­bog, Bukid­non, say­ing it is alarmed that some po­lice­men were linked to the in­ci­dent.

Lawyer Robert Lou Elango, chair­man of the Po­lice Re­gional Ap­pel­late Board of Napol­com-North­ern Min­danao, said it re­quired the Bukid­non Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice (PPO) to sub­mit re­port re­gard­ing the in­ci­dent.

He said the Mal­it­bog town po­lice for­warded an ini­tial re­port yes­ter­day.

The bod­ies of Vin­cent Vi­men, Clif­ford Abales and Don Re­mar An­dales were found in Sitio Bagong Si­lang, Mal­it­bog, two days af­ter they were al­legedly in­vited by the Tagoloan, Misamis Ori­en­tal town po­lice for ques­tion­ing.

“Among gi-re­quire ang Bukid­non PPO nga mag­sub­mit og re­port about ato nga in­ci­dent kay toa na­man sa ilang in­ves­ti­ga­tion divi­sion,” Elango said.

Elango said they were alarmed that some mem­bers of the Tagoloan po­lice were linked to the killing, prompt­ing the com­mis­sion to step in and gather doc­u­ments.

“Medyo naalarma mi kay ang re­port naa po­lice nga in­volved ug gis­us­pet­sa­han mao nga nil­i­hok nami bisan wala pay com­plainant ug nag-start nami gather og doc­u­ments,” he added.

The com­mis­sion will de­ter­mine its next move once it re­ceives the re­port from the Bukid­non PPO and when the per­pe­tra­tors are iden­ti­fied.

Elango said the rel­a­tives of the vic­tims may also file com­plaints be­fore the Napol­com.

“Wel­come sila nga mag-reklamo. Ni­abot pud sa ato nga in­for­ma­tion nga naay names in­volved,” Elango said.

He said es­tab­lish­ing the wit­nesses of the crime is also an­other an­gle that has to be de­vel­oped.

Elango also re­minds ev­ery po­lice sta­tion to put into record ev­ery­thing the po­lice does in the course of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion even when invit­ing peo­ple for ques­tion­ing.

“Da­pat tanan ma-record kung tin­uod nga gi-in­vite sa po­lice sta­tion ev­ery­thing must be recorded.
