Cop kills teen robber in Zamboanga Norte

PAGADIAN CITY – A teenage robber who attacked a policeman with a knife was killed following a robbery at a market in Salug town in the southern Filipino province of Zamboanga del Norte.
Jemart Pastor died from loss of blood due to a gunshot wound in the leg. He died while being rushed to the hospital. His companion Windell Batican, 14, was arrested, but two other alleged robbers - Kenken Malic, 19, and Junrey Gumandol, 18, managed to escape and were being hunted down by the police.
The four suspects were accused of attacking a policeman who discovered the robbery at one of the stalls in the market. Instead of heading to surrender, the suspects ganged up on the cop, hitting him with wood with Pastor stabbing him.
The body of the slain suspect was handed over to his family. Police said it recovered the loot left behind by the other gang members. (Mindanao Examiner)

7 Abu Sayyaf militants captured in Kuala Lumpur

ZAMBOANGA CITY – Malaysian authorities are holding 7 Filipino militants who are members of the notorious jihadist group Abu Sayyaf following their capture in Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia did not release the identities of the militants, but police said their ages are between 22 and 38, who managed to slip into the capital from the eastern state of Sabah near Tawi-Tawi, a province in the Muslim autonomous region in southern Philippines.
Their capture was the result of a careful operation and an offshoot of the arrest of 2 other Abu Sayyaf and six Malaysian militants in August in Kuala Lumpur, but it was unclear how the militants managed to sneak into Sabah. Although Malaysian authorities said some of those captured were working as private security guards for some companies in Kuala Lumpur and had faked their identities.
There was no immediate statement from the Philippine foreign ministry office or the military authorities in connection to the capture of the militants. (Mindanao Examiner)

Duterte branded ‘tyrannical’ ruler

DAVAO CITY – Tyrannical ruler! That’s what communist rebels branded President Rodrigo Duterte as the New People’s Army - which is fighting for a separate rule in the Philippines – urged the public to unite with the billowing wave of resistance against tyranny.
Rubi del Mundo, a rebel spokesman, said extra-judicial killings by state forces continue in the country with more than 8,000 people dead in Duterte’s anti-drug war. He said more than a dozen mostly natives or indigenous people were also murdered in the southern region of Mindanao and the killings still continue relentlessly.
“Four months into its implementation, the evils of martial law declared by the President Rodrigo Duterte, are pushing the masses in the region to fight in the face of escalating toll of human rights violations perpetrated by the Armed Forces and the police, and paramilitary forces,” he said, adding, in Southern Mindanao alone since May, security forces had committed at least 68 cases of human rights violations against peasants, Lumad, Moro and other sectors. Sixteen civilians were victims of extra-judicial killings for either being a Lumad, a peasant or actively opposing the anti-people policies of the reactionary government.
Del Mundo said Duterte’s atrocious war on drugs has claimed lives of poor Filipinos while the rich and powerful drug syndicates continue to escape his selective justice, save for a few of his political opponents.
“He continues to mock the millions of victims of this dark past—thousands of whom were from Davao City and around Southern Mindanao—by frequently declaring that Marcos’ martial law was very good and conspiring to reestablish the Marcos clan in position and strengthen their hold in national politics,” Del Mundo said.
He said the NPA has steadily recruited members in the South and vowed to continue offensive operations against security and government targets. “Democratic struggle and armed revolution flourished during the 14 years of Marcosian martial rule. Duterte’s copycat dictatorial rule will trigger the massive recruitment of young idealistic peasants, workers and petty-bourgeois into the NPA and the underground revolutionary movement and fight the hated regime,” he said.
There was no immediate statement either from the military or police or Duterte on Del Mundo’s claims. (Mindanao Examiner)

NBI, DOJ get new building in Sulu province






Sulu Gov. Totoh Tan speaks to representatives of the National Bureau of Investigation who praise the chief executive for his support to the NBI. (Ahl-franzie Salinas.)


SULU – The National Bureau of Investigation praised Sulu Governor Totoh Tan for his unwavering support following Wednesday’s courtesy call made by its representatives to the province’s chief executive.
Ronaldo Aguilar, Valentino Balbuena and Wilfredo Abuan - all from the NBI central office in Manila – thanked Tan for the satellite office he provided to the agency, including office furniture and fixtures and equipment essential for its operation.
Tan said people seeking clearance for job application and other documents need not to spend money anymore for air plane or boat transportation to go to the NBI office in Zamboanga City on Mindanao region. “They can now apply for all these documents in Jolo (Sulu’s capital town) and save their money instead. And those seeking help from the NBI have now access and this will greatly help in legal investigation, among others,” he said.
Aside from the NBI, government prosecutors in Sulu will also have their own office in the same two-storey building built for them in January 2016 by the provincial government.
Judge Alsad Alfad, Jr., of the Regional Trial Court and Fiscal Annie Marie Ledesma, together with lawyer Alkhaisar Saydil, the provincial prosecutor and other members of the judiciary, have praised the Sulu government for the new edifice, saying, it will hasten the hearing of court cases and provide better services to the public.
The NBI will have at least 2 rooms in the edifice for use in official transactions.
Tan said the project is part of the commitment of the provincial leadership to bring government services closer to the people. The new building was only one of many infrastructure projects of the provincial government in an effort to hasten economic progress, peace and development and stability in Sulu, he said.
Provincial engineer Abdurasad Baih said the building cost around P6 million. “This is just one of the many infrastructure projects of Governor Tan and all these are part of the peace and development efforts of the provincial government,” he said. (Ahl-franzie Salinas)

Police kill notorious bandit allied with Abu Sayyaf

ZAMBOANGA CITY – Police forces killed a notorious criminal whose group is affiliated with the Abu Sayyaf following a firefight in the southern Philippine province, officials said Wednesday.
The fighting broke out in the village of Mamagon in Naga town after civilians tipped off police on the presence of gunmen in the area, according to Chief Inspector Helen Galvez, a regional police spokesperson.
She said a team of policemen were sent to the village and caught up with a band of armed men and a firefight erupted that killed the 44-year old Moner Jikiri Timbol, a member of the Abdusalam Group, blamed for the spate of ransom kidnappings and banditry in Zamboanga Peninsula. Timbol was also wanted for murders in the province.
“Elements of Zamboanga Sibugay Provincial Public Safety Company conducted prophylactic patrol after receiving reports the regarding presence of armed men at Sitio Pulo Panjang and upon reaching the area, the operating troops encountered seven men armed with high powered firearms which led to a ten-minute firefight,” Galvez said.
There was no report of police casualties, she said, adding, Chief Superintendent Billy Beltran, the regional police commander, praised the successful operation. Police forces were still hunting down at least 6 other gunmen who managed to escape during the running gun battle. (Mindanao Examiner)
