MANILA, May 28 — PNP spokesman Chief Supt. Generoso Cerbo Jr., on Tuesday assured the beneficiaries of the nine Special Action Force (SAF) policemen killed in ambush in Cagayan of the full payment of all benefits due them.

Cerbo said roughly between P1.5 and P2 million will go to each family of the eight slain policemen on top of an estimated P15,000 monthly lifetime pension from the PNP and roughly the same amount for five years from the National Police Commission (Napolcom).

The slain cops identified were PO3 Vladimir Tabarejo, PO2 Dexter Cubilla, PO1 Erick Brioso, PO2 Angelbert Mateo, PO2 Elmark Rodney Pinated, PO1 Jerome Sanchez, PO2 Jonnel Bowat, PO2 Ronald Castulo, and Police Officer 2 Joefrey Dalwidaw.

The policemen were not on patrol operations when they were ambushed.

The rebels used a 25-meter-long detonation cord to set off the bomb as the police truck came into view. Two other bombs did not explode, the police said..

Meanwhile, Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas promised the quick turnover of all death benefits due to the families of those killed. Each family will receive P250,000 from the President’s Social Fund, from P141,000 up to P181,000 each from the PNP’s SFA, burial benefits of not less than P50,000 each and gratuity of at least P203,000 each from the Napolcom.

Roxas also promised full medical benefits of P170,00 each to the seven wounded identified as PO2 Ronald Gomez, PO1 Ephraim Dlete, PO2 Geopano Adangui, PO1 Ryan Asunio, PO2 Ricky Monay, PO2 Jeofrey Liagao Amiligan and PO2 Jeofrey Elasco. (PNA)
